Local stakeholders, including members of the commune board, local police, and parents, pose with Phum O Primary School’s new reflective jackets and traffic barrier.

Helmets for Kids contributed an iron traffic barrier and reflective jackets to Phum O Primary School as part of efforts to provide sustainable road safety solutions for the school. The iron barrier and no-entry sign will be placed on the road to block traffic during arrival and dismissal times for students. Phum O Primary School is located in a high-density traffic area along National Road 6A in Siem Reap Province.

In addition to the materials, the program also organized road safety extracurricular activities for 200 students from the school. Police from the Gikreng District of Siem Reap Province instructed students on how to safely commute to school by bicycle, motorcycle, and by walking. Students asked the police officers their questions on traffic laws and traffic signage.

In order to ensure the sustainability of the program, Helmets for Kids engaged with local stakeholders, including the commune board, parents, and local police.

Helmets for Kids is supported by Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) and AIP Foundation. It provides school children and teachers with quality helmets and road safety education.
