Program launch ceremony
Since March 2022, AIP Foundation has launched a Safe Step Program in Cambodia. The Safe Step Program is part of the road safety initiatives founded by Prudence Foundation, International Federation of the Red Cross, and National Geographic to ensure road safety for countries in Asia and African. In Cambodia, AIP Foundation has been chosen as the implementing partner the program, targeting 4 primary schools, high schools in Kampong Thom and Kampot Province.
The program activities include education campaign on road safety using integrative approaches. The focus will be on youth and parents’ education, teacher’s capacity building, high-quality helmets distribution, school zone modification, and community-driven awareness raising. By 2024, Safe Step Program aims to reach over 12,000 students across the country, making their journeys to school safer.
Mr. H.E. Min Meanvy, Secretary of State, Ministry of Public Works and Transport and Secretary-General of Camnbodian National Road Safety Committee shared: “The implementation of this program at proposed program provinces is really on the right target, very important and most efficient. The NRSC looks forward to working in collaboration with the teams to implement this program.”
In Cambodia, 12% of road crash fatalities victims are students and nearly 50% of them are secondary and high school students. We firmly believe that road safety risks can be reduced through education and public awareness interventions on helmet safety and road safety.
