This was part of annual program for the community entitled “Joining hands for future generations” organised by the Yamaha Motor Vietnam since 2003.
The program calls on families and communities to wear helmets for children on motorbikes in order to protect their lives as well as their future dreams.
According to Khuat Viet Hung, NTSC Vice President, a survey conducted in March showed that after the programs encouraging children to wear helmets, the number of children wearing helmets on motorbikes increased from 38% to 68%.
The NTSC stressed the need for children to wear helmets as it will help to reduce the negative consequences of traffic accidents on the children and help to safeguard future generations – the masters of the nation and the hope of their families, communities and society.
Over the past 12 years, the Yamaha Motor Vietnam has presented nearly 3 million sets of educational belongings and helmets to primary pupils across the country./.
