"Kid Donation 2017" was held in Quang Nam and Vung Tau of Vietnam in October 2017. A total of 31,300 helmets were donated to 38 elementary schools in front of the National Traffic Safety Commission (NTSC) and government.
This annual activity has been held since 2003 and a total of 186,895 helmets were delivered to 2,200 elementary schools aiming at children's safety.
The biggest ever number of helmets were donated this year.
Attended by nearly 10,000 people, the venue was filled with an air of excitement. They enjoyed concerts and parades. Especially in the concert, specially arranged songs were played to convey the message celebrating the 20th anniversary of YMVN next year as well as the correct way to wear a helmet.
President Yano of YMVN said that in 2017, we organized the program, “20 Years Journey for a Safe Community”, to mark Yamaha’s 20 years journey in Vietnam. "Safety for the community" is the top priority of Yamaha Motor Vietnam’s business activities, and also it is a sense of value that we want to share with young generations in Vietnam through many activities to promote a safer and friendlier traffic environment. Our purpose of this event is not only to give children beautiful and high quality helmets, but also to share our sense of value and meaning of traffic safety.
