In celebration of International Children’s Day, AIP Foundation hung banners with messages reminding students of life-saving behaviors, such as helmet-wearing, in front of school gates at four primary schools in Phnom Penh. The banners also featured messages directed towards parents about the dangers of speeding and distracted driving.
These awareness-raising activities follow donations of nearly 2,000 helmets to students and teachers at Chey Chumneas, Chbar Ampov 2, Hangor Sraschok, and Kean Kleang Primary School, in December 2019 and January 2020. Through the helmet distributions, average helmet use rates significantly increased across the schools, from nearly zero to 58 percent.
