In Pham Van Chieu Primary School, ten UPS staff members joined the extracurricular activities organized as part of Helmets for Kids adopting the roles of both game judges and competitors. AIP Foundation and UPS ran this project in support of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020). Traffic safety painting contests were followed by quizzes, puzzles, and a traffic safety themed fashion show. More athletic games were also run in the school yard.

Of particular importance at this event was the first Traffic Safety Forum for grades 4 and 5. “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn”, is a saying that reminds us that children are more likely to adopt new behaviors by being actively involved in the learning process. For this reason, presentations, role playing, and open discussion will be encouraged among older students in AIP Foundation programs. This forum, which will involve parents, teacher, and local authorities, will serve as a pilot for further implementation.
