15 January, 2020 – Bangkok, Thailand
A total 400 students were given quality helmets and helmet use training through an educational roadshow at Wichakorn School in Din Daeng District, Bangkok, Thailand through the Safety Delivered program.
AIP Foundation engaged and trained students on various aspects of helmet safety, including proper helmet size and fit, and further reinforced students’ understanding of the importance of helmet use and of safe road behavior through interactive road safety games. Teachers and the school principal presided over the event, which was also joined by Ms. Tubtim Anyarin Terathananpat, a famous Thai actress, model, TV host, and figure skater. At the event, Ms. Terathananpat encouraged young children to wear helmets during their trip between homes and schools.
Safety Delivered is supported by The UPS Foundation and implemented by AIP Foundation in Cambodia, India, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. The program aims to reduce road crash injuries and fatalities among vulnerable motorcyclists by working with young drivers to improve their driving behaviors and by increasing child helmet use.
