As the summer holiday draws to a close, AIP Foundation is preparing for another exciting school year of education and awareness programs throughout Vietnam. Read below to learn about some interesting advancements from the past few months, including a visit to the Protec helmet manufacturing factory in Hanoi and a look back at the 2016-2017 Helmets for Kids program.

Local stakeholders gather for helmet program year-end review meeting 
28 June, 2017 - Dong Nai Province

Fifty-seven stakeholders gathered in Dong Nai Province to discuss and reflect on the progress made through the Helmets for Kids program over the previous school year. Representatives from the local Department of Education and Training, primary schools, and others joined AIP Foundation and the local media during the meeting. As part of the school-based helmet safety education and awareness program, select schools received subsidized helmets, hosted extracurricular activities, and implemented an educational curriculum.

Australian university students donate 35 helmets for Vietnamese children, visit Protec helmet factory 
5 July, 2017- Hanoi

Students from the University of Adelaide in Australia donated 35 children’s helmets to AIP Foundation after a visit to the Protec factory in Hanoi. During the tour, the students learned about the history and mission of AIP Foundation, as well as current road safety challenges in low- and middle-income countries. The students also observed how to construct a helmet and the process for testing helmet quality in the on-site lab.

Dinh Kim Phuong, the nonprofit’s National Program Manager for the country, thanked the University of Adelaide students for their donation, which she said will “help protect Vietnamese children and their future.” The visit to the Protec factory was organized by AIP Foundation and the Australian Embassy in Vietnam.

In 2001, AIP Foundation's President and Founder, Greig Craft, founded Protec and began producing the world’s first "tropical" motorcycle helmet. Since its inception, the factory has produced nearly 6.5 million helmets.

50 university students share road safety experiences through focus group
25 August, 2017- Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City

AIP Foundation conducted focus group discussions with 50 students at five universities in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to identify the main causes of road crashes for young people. The discussion aimed to identify the gaps in students’ knowledge of crash prevention strategies, and how best to share road safety information with university students for our new Safety Delivered program. The participants in the focus group shared their road experiences as well as observations of common mistakes made by other road users. The university students also contributed innovative ideas to help inform program design, including engaging celebrities in Safety Delivered program activities in order to attract students and increase the program’s effectiveness. We will develop an educational toolkit on relevant road safety topics based on the results of the group discussions. Safety Delivered is a new program being implemented in Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, and Myanmar with support from The UPS Foundation.
