1,700 participants join the “I Love Helmets” Family Day event to raise awareness about road safety

With support from The UPS Foundation, AIP Foundation held a road safety event with the theme, “I Love Helmets” at Tan Tuc Primary School in Binh Chanh District, Ho Chi Minh City. The school is located near Trung Luong Highway, a high-risk traffic area in Ho Chi Minh City, where students face dangers on their daily commute.

The event gathered more than 1,500 students, 200 parents, teachers from primary and junior schools, and representatives from The UPS Foundation and Traffic Safety Committee (TSC). Among the participants were representatives from the Ho Chi Minh City TSC and Jeff McLean, Managing Director of UPS Vietnam. At the event, students and parents participated in several road safety activities that included painting, a fashion show, interactive games, and a road safety knowledge competition in order to promote child helmet use.

AIG celebrates Teacher’s Day by donating 820 quality helmets to students and teachers

In honor of Teacher’s Day, AIP Foundation delivered 820 high-quality helmets to students and teachers at Tan Hiep Primary School. This event, possible thanks to support from AIG, an American multinational insurance company, commemorated the 20th anniversary of normalized diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Vietnam.  This event is the third helmet handover event AIG has sponsored for at-risk school children and teachers. Thus far, AIG has provided 3,036 quality helmets to children and teachers throughout Vietnam.

Students, teachers, and representatives from AIG, the Traffic Safety Committee (TSC), and AIP Foundation attended the event. Among the attendees were Rena Bitter, U.S. Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City and Susan E. Loftus, AIG CEO and General Manager at AIG Vietnam.

Abbott expands “Helmets for Families” to Hanoi

AIP Foundation, with support from Abbott, collaborated with the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), and the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to kick off the Helmets for Families program at Lieu Ninh primary school in Hanoi. This is the first year the Helmets for Families program expands to Hanoi after 2 years of successfully piloting in 4 schools in Ho Chi Minh City and 5 schools in Tra Vinh province. In the 2015-2016 school year, Abbott will hand over more than 4,300 helmets to students and teachers in 2 primary schools in Hanoi and to first grade students in 9 schools in Ho Chi Minh City and Tra Vinh province. In addition, through an exchange program that covers up to 4,100 subsidized helmets, parents can exchange their low quality helmets for high-quality standard helmets for 65% of the original price.

Representatives from the NTSC, the MOET, the Hanoi TSC and DOET, traffic police and local authorities, Abbott, students, parents, and teachers joined the ceremony.
