Global Newsletter – April 2022 

Dear Friends and Supporters,


“Let it be the decade of action for NGOs.”Lotte Brondum, Executive Director, proclaimed last month, at the 7th Global Meeting of the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety. In this spirit, we celebrate the commitment of the people working to improve global road safety around the world and their pledges of #CommitToAct.


After two years of strict border closures, our host country of Vietnam is finally reopening its borders, warmly welcoming citizens and tourists alike. For all of us at AIP Foundation, this is truly joyous news as we are now able to reunite with family, friends, colleagues, partners, and beneficiaries after far too long.


In late April, our program team traveled to Mumbai to celebrate the launch of our signature road safety program, Safety Delivered, in India for the first time. 


This month, we have also placed creativity at the heart of our work, with a helmet safety drawing contest in Ho Chi Minh City as part of the Safety Delivered program, UPS volunteers from UPS Vietnam had the pleasure to select the best drawings. Students from five project schools across the city entered the drawing contest. Each class was encouraged to draw a picture in their classroom following the topic: “Correct helmet wear – Safety Delivered”. 


In the Philippines, UPS staff was present at the online helmet measurement training marking the fundamental engagement of UPS in the Philippines, in delivering safety to the children of Mandaluyong city. 


In collaboration with the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), we hosted a workshop focusing on collaboration with legislative agencies, as part of the nationwide campaign amending road laws in Vietnam, supported by the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) and the Global Health Advocacy Incubator (GHAI). 


Policy-makers from key agencies at the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of Health, and other key relevant agencies benefitted from the key recommendations from leading experts to amend the laws and ensure safer streets and roads for life in Vietnam.

As part of the Heads Up! Program, our FIA community workshop put young voices at the heart of solving the global road safety crisis. We cannot hope to solve the road safety crisis on our own, we must engage with youth at every step of the process.


Maolin Macatangay, Communications Manager at Youth for Road Safety (YOURS) shared, “YOURS – Youth for Road Safety continuously works to create a world where young people do not die on the world’s roads. The best way to do this is to meaningfully engage and involve young people in all stages of project management and decision-making. We believe that young people have the abilities, commitment, and passion to energize the road safety movement across the world. It’s time we see young people not just as victims of road crashes but as assets who can help end the senseless loss of lives on the roads.”

As we mobilize our community in the region for the upcoming week of action, expressing our steadfast support for the #StreetsforLife campaign, we take this opportunity to celebrate every person who is dedicating their time, creativity, and innovative action to ensuring we meet the target of reducing road injuries and fatalities by 50% by 2030.
