With the support of the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), AIP Foundation and Johnson & Johnson organized three kick-off ceremonies during the month of September and October to celebrate the expansion of the Helmets for Kids program into 16 new program schools across Thai Nguyen, Yen Bai, and Gia Lai provinces in Vietnam. All program schools are located on provincial or national highways, such as 1B and QL37, which are exposed to heavy traffic volume, and have student populations which lack standard helmets and often have lower helmet-wearing rates. Combined with the 4 ongoing program schools in Thai Nguyen, Helmets for Kids will distribute 5,900 helmets across a total of 20 program schools.
Nearly 1,000 children and teachers attended the “Children Have Fun with Road Safety” festival through the Helmets for Families program, organized by AIP Foundation and supported by the global healthcare company Abbott, in coordination with the Ho Chi Minh City Traffic Safety Committee and Department of Education and Training. More than 30 Abbott volunteers joined students of Le Loi Primary School, in Nha Be district, for the festival which coincided with Annual Traffic Safety Month in Vietnam.
