DENSO, an automotive components manufacturing company, has donated 628 high-quality helmets to students of six different schools in the Udon Thani Province in Thailand. These schools were selected based on their locations along busy highways with high densities of large vehicles and trucks in an effort to align with the aims of AIP Foundation’s Helmets for Kids program, which endeavors to protect the most vulnerable children from road crashes.
Seven hundred students and teachers were in attendance alongside numerous AIP Foundation representatives and local community leaders, including such key members of this initiative as Pinai Sirinakorn, Vice President of Thai DENSO Group and DENSO International Asia Co., LTD, and Chaiyavoot Jarntorn, the Governor of Udon Thani Province.
At the event, students learned how to properly wear their helmets and engaged in educational road safety activities to teach them the importance of safe road behavior in a creative and stimulating way.
