Michael T. Doherty and Paul Hayward, Co-Founders of Panthera Group Thailand, donated 300,000 Thai Baht to AIP Foundation to support distribution of 1,000 helmets to students in Bangkok and Phuket through the Helmets for Kids program which targets to provide school children and teachers with quality helmets and road safety education. The program will benefit students from 10 schools (five schools in Bangkok and five schools in Phuket) in 2019.

Children are the most affected on Thailand’s roads. With low helmet wearing rates, children are consistently at risk of a head injury. During the 2017-2018 school year, 9,974 students and teachers were educated through our school-based activities and helmet use rates increased from 2.8% to 44.9% across our program schools.
