100 university students from across five universities in Phnom Penh, Cambodia were trained as road safety ambassadors through the Youth Ambassadors for Road Safety (YARS) initiative as part of the Safety Delivered program, supported by The UPS Foundation. The training workshop took place at Asia Euro University, one of five universities chosen to be a partner for the Safety Delivered program. At the workshop, representatives from the five partner universities, including Asia Euro University, University of Cambodia, Phnom Penh International University, Human Resource University, and Preak Leap Nation College of Agriculture, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with AIP Foundation for program implementation between 2019-2020.
During the workshop, students were educated on the road safety situation in Cambodia, and learned about distracted driving, speeding, the importance of proper helmet use, child protection policies, and AIP Foundation’s public awareness-raising strategies through the Safety Delivered program. Additional speakers included representatives from The Ministry of Public Works and Transportation and General Secretariat of the National Police, who informed the university students on Cambodian road traffic laws and fines for violations and offenses.
