From 8-15 January, AIP Foundation staff educated parents of students at four primary schools in a primarily low-income and agricultural district of Ho Chi Minh City on helmet safety. The training session was part of Abbott’s Helmets for Families program. Attendees were taught the three-steps to properly wearing a motorcycle helmet and were informed about an upcoming helmet exchange program, which will allow 150 parents to swap their sub-standard helmets for quality ones at a subsidized cost.
This school year, Helmets for Families has provided 5,600 donated and subsidized helmets to schools in Hoc Mon District. In the past, the program has also worked in Tra Vinh Province and Hanoi.
