On November 18, the traditional unified national lesson on road safety is held in secondary schools of the country.

A nationwide lesson on road safety is one of the events that the International Charitable Foundation “Assistance to Victims of Road Accidents” jointly with the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine conduct within the 2nd stage of the national Road Safety Week.


In particular, teachers can use the methodological manual “Safe Way to Home”, as well as a number of thematic video materials developed by the International Charitable Foundation.


You can become more familiar with video materials on our website in the Unified national lesson section. They can also be found on the YouTube channel «Безпечна країна» (“Bezpechna kraina”) and are available in sign language translation format.


These materials can be used not only during the road safety weeks, but also at any time during the year during life safety classes, thematic educational hours and other educational activities on road safety.


Materials are targeted at different age groups of categories of students. They can be broadcasted to children online or recommended for viewing. The manual and video materials concern the rules of pedestrian behavior on the streets and on the roads, on the railway, compliance with traffic rules when using bicycles, scooters, personal electric vehicles. They raise the important topic of the use of reflective elements.


They also teach the basics of providing premedical care in case of accidents. In addition to the nationwide lesson, the International Charitable Foundation continues to conduct traditional trainings on providing premedical care for children and youth.


In particular, on November 16 the Foundation’s specialists visited Gymnasium 59 named after O. Boichenko in Kyiv, where they told the students about the algorithms of first aid at bleedings and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. In addition, all the participants received reflective bracelets to wear in the dark. 


Let us remind you, that the International Charitable Foundation “Assistance to Victims of Road Accidents” has been working in the field of road safety in Ukraine, in particular, on the prevention of road accidents and numerous human losses on the roads for more than 10 years. We are the largest non-governmental organization in Ukraine dealing with this problem.


Traditionally, every year the Foundation joins the organization of the events within the national Road Safety Week, which is one of the largest information and educational platform to draw public attention to the problems of road traffic injuries in the country. The Weeks are aimed at consolidating the efforts of state authorities, departments, structures, interested public and media to develop joint solutions and solve this problem.
