FIA Foundation Child Health Initiative AIP Foundation May 2018

A student from Neak Oukhna Pheakdei Hun Neang Beong Trabeck South Primary School shares his #ThisIsMyStreet story on the street outside of his school.

AIP Foundation mobilized students, teachers, and community leaders across Vietnam, China, and Cambodia in support of the Child Health Initiative’s week of action held from May 21-27. The new campaign calls for a first ever summit of world leaders on child and adolescent health in order to re-focus global policy and prioritize youth road deaths and injuries as the health crisis it is. In China and Cambodia, we captured images of students and teachers on the streets outside of their schools and shared their stories on social media using the hashtag #ThisisMyStreet. In Vietnam, members of the Yen Bai Traffic Safety Committee and the Nghia Lo traffice police also signed on in support of the campaign, joining communities and NGOs around the world in urging world leaders to ‘walk the talk’ on providing safe environments for children and adolescents.

If you would like to get more involved, visit the Every Journey, Every Child campaign site at everylife.org to see how you can join the #ThisIsMyStreet global community action, advocate in your community, help persuade politicians of the need for change, and fight for the mobility rights of every child.
