Safe Mobility for All : Our Impact Report 2022

AIP Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives on the roads and increasing access to safe, equitable, and sustainable mobility for all. Beyond empowering the underserved road user communities, AIP Foundation tackles injustice related to youth engagement, workers’ rights, gender equality, and environmental issues.

The United Nations has set an ambitious target of reducing deaths and injuries from road crashes under Sustainable Development Goal 3.6. At AIP Foundation, we are proud to share that – beyond road safety – our inclusive and targeted programs pave the way to sustainable changes related to 11 out of 17 SDGs.




Words from our CEO, Mirjam Sidik:

While people in every corner of the world are dealing with the impacts of climate change and rising living costs, it’s our vulnerable and at-risk families who face the greatest inequalities. These inequalities are only heightened when we think about the number of lives lost on our roads in low-and middle-income countries. It’s enough to make anyone feel skeptical of the state of the world. 

And yet, I’m still hopeful. 

In the face of these immense challenges, we have remained steadfast in our mission to promote equitable, safe, and sustainable mobility for all – directly impacting the lives of 8,298,063 vulnerable young people, parents, teachers, people living with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and more this past year. 

In 2022, we empowered young people through education and training and provided them with the necessary tools to become active agents of change. Our young leaders developed hard-hitting campaigns to raise awareness on helmet use across Asia; they collaborated to help build a mobile application to map high-risk roads; and they organized coalitions to advocate for safer transport conditions for vulnerable garment factory workers – to name just a few. 

We also worked to bridge sustainable connections between mobility and health, the environment, and equity. We promoted clean air and well-being by distributing bicycles to low-income and ethnic minority youth – many of whom previously relied on carbon-emitting motorcycles in their daily journeys to school.  We launched a multi-sector coalition to promote greater gender diversity in engineering professions. And we engaged in research to reduce the negative effects of vision impairment on driving skills. To ensure our impacts are sustained for generations to come, we directly influenced 44 policies across the national-and-local levels. 

To keep up with our fast-changing world, we also needed to think creatively to achieve the most effective impacts. We innovated our educational tools and methodologies to better meet the learning needs of our students with disabilities. We worked with partners to design and distribute improved helmet models that provide greater protection while meeting global standards. And we collaborated with academia to explore sustainable smart city solutions.  We’re not stopping there. 

With less than 3,000 days to go before the end of the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety, there is still much work to be done before our global targets are met. One key to meeting this challenge will be the ongoing coordination and strategic collaborations between sectors and civil society to empower people, promote sustainability, and foster creativity.
