Road safety protection and education to Cambodia's most vulnerable communities

As schools re-opened across Cambodia in November, AIP Foundation has resumed in-person activities starting with helmet donations to at risk communities. Together with our long-time partner, Manulife Cambodia, we have distributed close to 900 helmets to students and teachers at O Ambel Primary School in Banteay Meanchey Province as part of our Helmets for Families (HFF) program. 

This donation takes place at the right time as children will be protected when traveling to and from school with quality helmets and road safety training through this program implementation. Despite the introduction of a universal helmet law in Cambodia in 2015, our pre-evaluation showed that none of the students surveyed at O Ambel Primary School wore helmets. Approximately 70% of students commute by motorcycle or bicycle at O Ambel Primary School. In addition, the majority of students at O Ambel are from low-income local families, making buying a helmet for their children mostly unaffordable for parents.

The Helmets for Families program, which has operated in Cambodia since 2012, has provided almost 8,000 quality helmets to students, teachers and parents most in need. The program has delivered road safety education and skills to 6,128 students, 301 teachers and 10,847 parents across Cambodia. More than 170 children have been saved from serious head injury through the program. As the new year begins, we are looking forward to reaching more vulnerable communities in Cambodia with safe equipment and necessary road safety education through our interventions.
