Parents in Bangkok are helping children reclaim their streets by participating in a road safety training session hosted by road safety charity the AIP Foundation.
Road injuries and fatalities are a leading cause of death for children in Thailand causing dangerous commutes to and from school, which can subsequently affect their access to education.
More than 70 parents of students from 11 schools in Bangkok participated in the charity’s Safety Delivered program’s training to increase their knowledge on safer student commutes.
The Safety Delivered program, supported by The UPS Foundation, takes a holistic approach to road safety by engaging various members of the community like parents and teachers. The aim is to ensure those closest to children are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to keep them safe.
