Lifting barriers to education in Thailand

March 14, 2021

BANGKOK, Thailand—March 14, 2021

Road injuries and fatalities still remain a challenge and leading cause of death for children causing dangerous commutes to and from school, which can subsequently affect their access to education. Parents are helping children reclaim their streets by participating in a road safety training session hosted by AIP Foundation through the Safety Delivered program.

Parents play a critical role in the development and safety of their children including making sure they can get to school and back safely. More than 70 parents of students from 11 schools in Bangkok participated in the Safety Delivered program’s training to increase their knowledge on safer student commutes. The event focused on defensive pedestrian and motorbike skills followed by an open forum where parents had the opportunity to discuss and share ideas.

The Safety Delivered program, supported by The UPS Foundation, takes a holistic approach to road safety by engaging various members of the community like parents and teachers. This ensures those closest to children are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to keep them safe.
