Sigma Elevator keeps 195 children safe on Bangkok’s dangerous roads

July 13, 2012


Sigma Elevator donated 195 helmets to the students and teachers of Wat Nakprok Primary School in Bangkok on July 13th, as part of AIP Foundation’s Helmets for Kids program.

Wat Nakprok is located on a busy, narrow road, and yet many of the school’s students frequently travel to and from school on the backs of their parents’ motorcycles, their heads unprotected. Ratanawadee Winther, AIP Foundation’s Thailand Country Director said, “These families may have limited road safety knowledge or resources, but thanks to this donation their children will be able to protect themselves.”

Sigma Elevator, a global brand, is the first elevator company to equip children and teachers in Thailand with the knowledge and tools to be safer on the road. In addition to the donation of 195 helmets, the school’s teachers were trained in helmet use education, and extracurricular activities will be run throughout the year to keep the students engaged and aware.
