Free Motorcyle Helmets to SD1 Nusa Dua


Rotary Club Bali Nusa Dua joins with Rotary Club Bali Kuta and Rotary Club Bali Canggu to promote Project Protect to SD1 (Elementary School 1) Nusa Dua on Monday 9 May, 2016.

He’s Baaaacccckkkk! Helmet Man returns to SD1, Nusa Dua Bali, to distribute free helmets and teach the students (together with their parents) how to properly wear a motorcycle helmet. This week Helmet Man (aka Chris Sperduto, RC Bali Canggu, left) was joined by Bpk. I. Made Linggih, Panit 1 Dikyasa Sat Lantas Polresta Denpasar Polda Bali (right) and Bpk. I. Ketut Darsana Koposol Ungasan Polsek Kuta Selatan Polresta Denpasar Polda Bali (centre).

Project Protect, conceived by Chris Sperduto when President of Rotary Club Bali Canggu, is an island wide Rotary project open to everyone. Companies and organisations (and individuals as well) may also donate/sponsor helmets for young children with their logo prominently displayed on the helmet. More sponsorship info at: Safe Kids Foundation /Project Protect

Project Protect’s goal is to educate parents about the importance of having their children not only wear a helmet when traveling by motorbike but also wear the helmet correctly, i.e. click the strap! Whilst the program is aimed primarily at children 4-6 years old to get started and in the habit of wearing a helmet early, helmets are also available for older children. Helmets are given away free to any child without or found not to be wearing a helmet at organised school functions or routine traffic stops.

To date Project Protect has given away over 3,800 helmets around Bali.

With the help of Ibu Ni Wayan Ekayanti, S. Pd. SD and Ibu Nengah Murnawati, S. Hg and all the administrators and staff of SD1 Nusa Dua RC Bali Nusa Dua together with RC Bali Kuta provided all the children at SD1 Nusa Dua free helmets. All in all a great day at SD1, Nusa Dua Bali and another successful day for Project Protect and the Rotary Clubs of Bali!
