November 27, 2021

MUMBAI, India – November 27, 2021

In India, teachers were at the forefront of safeguarding their students’ lives by attending a helmet safety training as part of the Safety Delivered program, supported by The UPS Foundation. Eleven dedicated teachers from a new project school – Lilavata Lalji Dayal High School and College of Commerce – gathered for the virtual training.

At the school, there are no facilities for the students’ pick-up and drop-off. The main gate is located directly on the main road, the situation is highly dangerous and hectic. To prevent further risk and injury, AIP Foundation, with the support of the Western India Automobile Association (WIAA), has welcomed the School Principal, and the teachers to learn practical skills on helmet use and road safety. We were delighted to welcome the special participation of Mr. Nitin Dossa, WIAA’s Chairman and Vice President of FIA Region II.

Teachers became the students as they gained knowledge on the global road crash crisis, as well as their roles and responsibilities in preventing their students from being unsafe on the streets. The training provided an opportunity for them to increase their expertise and skills on proper helmet use, learning various head sizes measurement methods.

Safety Delivered is a program implemented by AIP Foundation to work with primary school students and motorcyclists in high-risk areas in India, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam – by educating youth on safe driving skills as well as increasing helmet use among children.
