Learning is one of the main components of everyday life, especially during childhood and as young adults. Everyone has the right to go to school to learn and build their future.

By engaging the media and increasing visibility and public awareness, we ensure that people are involved in every step of the decision-making process, bringing road safety out of the isolation in which it has been treated for far too long. This marks an important step to contributing to lasting policy reform making our roads safer throughout Vietnam.
