The Honda Foundation, Inc. (HFI), in partnership with Philippine Global Road Safety Partnership (PGRSP), recently provided Safe T-Kids Flashcards to ten public elementary schools in Laguna and Batangas to help raise consciousness about road safety.

The project provides road safety flashcards as visual aids of teachers to help familiarize Grades 5 and 6 students with various road settings and keep them guarded from the potential dangers on their way to school. In coordination with the Department of Education (DepEd), road safety awareness will be part of the curriculum.

"Safety is one of Honda's main thrusts. Honda is not only committed in providing quality products with advanced safety features, but we are also dedicated in looking after the safety of all road users," said Mr. Tatsuya Natsume, President and General Manager of HCPI.

Before handing over the Safe T-Kids Flashcards, teachers underwent a two-day training workshop to learn effective implementation of the module.
