HANOI, Vietnam – December 8, 2021

The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Hanoi recognized AIP Foundation for its outstanding corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, Slow Zones, Safe Zones at a ceremony presided over by U.S. Charg√© d’Affaires, a.i. Marie C. Damour on December 8th, at the InterContinental Hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam. Mr. Greig Craft, AIP Foundation Founder, and President, and Mrs. Na Huong Hoang, AIP Foundation Deputy CEO, attended the ceremony to receive the AmCham CSR 2021 Award.

The overall purpose of the Slow Zones, Safe Zones program is to reduce road crash injuries and fatalities in school zones. Phase I in Pleiku City demonstrated that the road environment became safer for students commuting to and from school through a comprehensive set of interventions to improve road user behavior in school zones. From 2 pilot schools, we advocated for scale-up and achieved an important milestone in August 2020. The government in Pleiku announced that it will set a new speed limit of 30 – 40km/h at all schools in the city during drop-off and pick-up times, and will allocate city funds to improve the infrastructure at all schools in Pleiku.
