More than 1,500 students, parents, and administrators from twelve secondary schools joined singer Quoc Thien for a festival at Le Van Viet School on May 26 to raise awareness of the need for safer roads in their community through photography. The event was organized as part of the Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation’s ‘Zooming in on Road Safety’ program, taking place for the first time this year with the support of Intel Products Vietnam.

In collaboration with the Ho Chi Minh Traffic Safety Committee and Department of Education and Training, ‘Zooming in on Road Safety’ rallies students and parents to capture the reality of young road users. Since November, Intel volunteers have been training students in road safety knowledge and photography skills.

On May 26, students’ photographs, featuring their personal perspective on the traffic environment in their community, were exhibited for their families and the public. As photographers, students demonstrated their understanding of traffic safety. More than 130 Intel volunteers also led interactive games at the event, using competition and creativity to improve the road safety knowledge of the students and their parents.
