A total of 9,100 helmets will be distributed to primary students and teachers throughout 2015 as part of Johnson & Johnson’s fourth year of support for AIP Foundation’s road safety program, Helmets for Kids. Between February and December of this year, 44 schools will receive donations in Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Dong Nai, and Quang Nam Provinces.
AIP Foundation organized a kick-off ceremony on March 17 in Quang Nam Province to mark another year of support. This is the first year Quang Nam Province schools are receiving helmet donations and road safety education under the Helmets for Kids program.
Five primary schools in Quang Nam Province received 2,987 helmets at the ceremony. The remaining helmets will be distributed in September at the start of the 2015-2016 school year to primary schools across the four provinces. Representatives from the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), Ministry of Education and Training (MoET), Johnson & Johnson, and local partners attended the ceremony and took part in the symbolic helmet handover.
