A fun-filled Road Safety Day for learning
Learning activities for safe roads behaviors
As part of the SAFE STEPS – Road Safety programme, a SAFE STEPS Kids Road Safety Day took place in September last year at Hun Sen Trosek Koang high school, Kampot province, with about 1,000 students attending.
The Road Safety Day was co-organized by Prudential Cambodia, Prudence Foundation and AIP Foundation, and in collaboration with the National Road Safety Committee, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, and local programme partners to help students mitigate risks on the road, provide them with safety equipment and road traffic education.
Through interactive games and fun activities, students reinforced their road safety skills and knowledge on motorcycle driving and helmet use for eligible students aged 15 or above, understanding speed limits, avoiding distractions, and the importance of pedestrian safety. Students also participated in a road safety quiz to test their understanding and received motorcycle driver training through practical demonstrations.
The success of Road Safety Day underscores the importance of offering interactive events to young children and students. The collaboration with community and governmental partners raise higher awareness among parents, policymakers, and residents to establish safe school environments and instill quality road safety education in school curricula. Safe school zones are integral in ensuring that students can access their education safely. Visit our website here to see how you can support our work and become a road safety ambassador.
