Who we are
Concerned by the growing crisis and impact of road crashes on poor economies, Greig Craft established the Asia Injury Prevention Foundation (AIP Foundation) to improve road traffic safety in the developing world in 1999.
His innovative solutions have already had impact in reducing road crash fatalities and injuries in Asia and Africa. AIP Foundation’s creation of a lightweight 'tropical' helmet has been hailed as a milestone in child injury prevention. Its signature Helmets for Kids program was officially launched by former US President Bill Clinton in 2000, and has since distributed 400,000 child helmets in Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Nepal, Nigeria and Uganda.
Setting up the world's first non profit helmet factory in Vietnam, Greig Craft created a new model of public-private partnership demonstrating self-sustainability. Protec has become a recognized leader in producing quality, yet affordable, US designed helmets for the poor. Protec puts all ‘profits’ back into local communities for road safety education and public awareness campaigns, and employs the physically disabled as assembly line workers.
Greig Craft is a member of the United Nations Commission on Global Road Safety. He was awarded the Prince Michael Award for International Road Safety in 2006, and Vietnamese President Nguyen Minh Triet bestowed an award for his contributions to Road Safety Education in 2007.
