We kicked-off 2017 by providing more than 600 students with helmets and engaging road safety activities at primary schools in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Stay tuned for more on how our school-based programs are creating a safe generation of young road users.

Check out our 2016 Annual Report to learn more about how we made roads safe in Cambodia last year, as well as the life-saving work we championed in our other program countries.

Students encouraged to wear motorcycle helmets as part of school uniforms

9 March, 2017 – Siem Reap Province

Nearly 550 primary school students received quality helmets and were encouraged to wear them as part of their school uniforms during the kick-off ceremony for a new Helmets for Kids program, which is supported by the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB). The road safety initiative aims to make young road users attending Anuk Wat Koruk Kosal Primary School in Siem Reap, role models in their community. The students, along with their teachers, also participated in educational activities during the event.

ARRB is an Australian organization, which provides research services in the road and transport industries, began collaborating with AIP Foundation in 2012. It has also supported schools in Vietnam and Thailand. It also assisted in developing and implementing road treatments in communities served by the nonprofit’s pedestrian safety program in China.

Anuk Wat Koruk Kosal Primary School is located on a busy highway in Siem Reap Province. In 2015, one student passed away due to a road crash. The student was not wearing a helmet and suffered a fatal head injury during a motorcycle crash while his father was driving him home from school. Before the program started, 80% of students commuted to school by motorcycles and bicycles though only about 1% wore helmets.

Hong Leong Bank Cambodia Plc. teamed up with AIP Foundation and #SaveKidsLives to provide nearly 100 grade 1 and 2 students with life-saving helmets. The handover ceremony took place at Anuk Wat Primary School in Phnom Penh. During the event, the students participated in educational activities about how to follow traffic rules and learned about the importance of wearing their new helmets.

"Providing safety helmets to these kids is our way of showing our commitment in protecting the future generation of Cambodia," Mr. Joseph Farrugia, CEO of Hong Leong Bank Cambodia Plc., said.

The #SaveKidsLives campaign was launched in the lead-up to the Third United Nations Global Road Safety Week in May 2015.
