‘Walk With FedEx’ tour brings pedestrian safety lessons to 13,019 Students in Ho Chi Minh City

December 23, 2013


On December 23, FedEx, AIP Foundation (as Safe Kids Vietnam), the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education and Training, and Traffic Safety Committee launched the ‘Walk with FedEx Tour’ to bring pedestrian safety education and equipment to 13,019 students at 14 primary schools in Ho Chi Minh City.

From December 2013 to April 2014, Walk with FedEx will educate students about safe pedestrian behaviors through in-class sessions and games.  Each participating school will designate one ‘Safety Day’ for the Walk with FedEx activities.  FedEx employee volunteers and school coordinators will facilitate the trainings, distribute pedestrian safety equipment, and provide guidance during mobile traffic simulations that will allow the students to practice pedestrian safety skills in a safe environment.

Walk with FedEx is a new initiative under Walk This Way (WTW), the road safety advocacy program launched by FedEx and the Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation – Safe Kids Vietnam in 2009.  Since then, WTW has reached over 45,516 students from 70 primary and secondary schools in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, installed a 1,700 square meter traffic safety park in Dong Nai Province for primary school students, and donated 3,472 helmets, 6,852 reflective jackets, and 45,516 pedestrian safety books to pupils.
