FIA Foundation attends Helmets for Kids midterm workshop in Vietnam

December 19, 2018

FIA Foundation, government partners, and AIP Foundation signing the commitment pledge in Gia Lai.

AIP Foundation and the Gia Lai Traffic Safety Committee (TSC) organized a midterm workshop for Helmets for Kids, a Johnson & Johnson supported program. At the workshop, nearly 120 attendees included: Mr. Pham Hieu Trinh, Chief of Secretariat of the Gia Lai TSC; Mr. Le Van Hanh of the Gia Lai Department of Transportation; Mr. Nguyen Van Long of the Gia Lai Department of Education and Training; Mr. Le Cong Ngoc of Gia Lai Traffic Police; other provincial-level authorities; and representatives from 12 program schools (school boards, teachers and parents). At this workshop, we welcomed Mrs. Natalie Draisin of FIA Foundation to attend and present.

During the workshop, all schools shared their thoughts and gave feedback on the program. This school year, there were three new schools that joined the program. We found that the helmet use rate has significantly increased f from 23% to 96% at the new program schools. All 12 program schools also devised strategies to keep the helmet use rate high and to make child helmet use a sustainable, lifelong practice for all children. At the end of the workshop, all representatives came on stage and participated in a commitment signing, promising to always ensure that their children wear helmets.

In December, all Helmets for Kids midterm workshops take place across all program provinces. In Yen Bai, workshops were conducted from December 5-6, 2018. In Quang Nam, workshops will be on December 23, 2018 and in Thai Nguyen, workshops will be conducted on December 26, 2018.
