HCM CITY (VNS) — The National Traffic Safety Committee in coordination with the Ministry of Education and Training will offer pedestrian-safety training and equipment to more than 20,000 students at 18 primary schools in HCM City's District 9.
Under the road-safety advocacy programme Walk This Way, students from 12 secondary schools in the city will participate in capturing images of safe or dangerous road-user behaviors and environments from now through January.
Several schools in District 9 will undergo structural changes to improve the pedestrian environment for students.
Since 2010, the Walk This Way programme, supported by FedEx and Safe Kids-AIP Foundation, has reached more than 55,000 students at 70 primary and secondary schools across the country. — VNS
