FedEx Express, in collaboration with Safe Kids Vietnam and AIP Foundation celebrated International Walk to School Month and launched this year’s Walk With FedEx Tour.
The event included a parade of students and representatives walking to school to support the International Walk to School Month, which was held in parallel with walks in more than 40 countries around the world. This event also kicked off the Walk With FedEx Pedestrian Safety Tour for the 2015-2016 school year, which will bring pedestrian safety education, equipment, and materials to over 20,000 students across 18 primary schools in District 9, Ho Chi Minh City and increases awareness about pedestrian safety in the wider community.
From November 2015 to May 2016, Safe Kids Vietnam and AIP Foundation will hold a school-wide Safety Day at each school to train students on pedestrian safety knowledge and skills, and encourage them to practice their newly-acquired skills in mobile traffic simulation corners. The training will be followed by a Comedy Play tour, performing “The Tortoise and the Hare”, featuring actors from Ho Chi Minh City Theater to reinforce pedestrian safety messages for students in an entertaining and fun way.
