Helmets for Kids program recently celebrated its significant and impactful alliance with leaders from the community of Binh Xuyen District, Vinh Phuc Province - a major industrial zone in Northern Vietnam, at its Helmet Handover ceremony at Son Loi A Primary School on April 8th,  2021. Since 2001, AIP Foundation has implemented Helmets for Kids across Vietnam to prepare the next generation of road users to be responsible leaders in road safety while equipping them with the necessary tools and knowledge to commute safely. 

Helmets for Kids (HFK) focuses on increasing helmet use among children in areas where road crash and injury risks are prevalent, but preventative actions are lacking. HFK improves road safety knowledge, provides high-quality helmets to students, and trains teachers at program schools on road safety, and educates parents who reinforce their children’s road safety behaviors. This comprehensive approach ensures communities are better prepared to avoid road crashes and preventable medical costs, which would force them into deeper poverty. 

Since its inception in Vinh Phuc Province in 2018, nearly 1,400 students have received helmets to keep them safe going to and from school through the Helmets for Kids program. Read on to learn more about the program and what we have achieved together over the years.

BINH XUYEN DISTRICT, Vietnam—April 8, 2021

Binh Xuyen District is at the epicenter of Vietnam’s northern industrial zone, leaving a significant part of the population at risk as they commute into the District for work. Vietnam Garments Manufacturing, Ltd. (VNG) has been taking the lead in mitigating these risks with AIP Foundation by delivering safety equipment and imparting road safety skills for over 400 students, teachers, and school administrators through the Helmets for Kids (HFK) program at Son Loi A Primary School.

Located in Vinh Phuc Province, Binh Xuyen connects four national highways, thus making it a popular “industrial zone” and where VNG happens to operate. While this makes it ideal for big businesses, it’s less ideal for young people who face barriers on their commute to school as they try and navigate safely using roads where vehicles traveling well past speed limits. VNG is on a mission to find sustainable solutions as they recognize the risks road users face.

“We’re proud to lead the Helmets for Kids program with AIP Foundation for the past several years. We’ve been able to support families and communities by preparing the next generation of road users to be responsible leaders in road safety. We hope that the program will encourage not only primary school students, but also their parents and the community to do the same” Managing Director of VNG, Mr. Kevin Zheng shared.

Mr. Nguyen Trong Thai, Chief Secretariat of National Traffic Safety Committee said at the event, “I would like to request all teachers to instruct and remind students to follow the regulations of traffic safety law and to wear a helmet when commuting by motorbike or electric bicycle. I also suggest to consistently monitor and ensure the rate of wearing helmets remains stable. I encourage parents to create a habit of wearing helmets for your children, and always remember the message ‘love your child, wear a helmet’ for the safety of our children.”
