At the end of orientation, the 5ht and 6th students received a national standardized white helmet and story book about sustainability. 1st to 4th grade student received a small package with a notebook and writing stationary. This allows many fishermen’ children to have essential supplies necessary to be safe on the road, and start spreading the word of sustainability in their neighborhood.

Many children ride on motorbike as passenger without a helmet due to limited means and low awareness about road safety. Fishing & Living is committed to take part in the education and social activities among fishermen, including their families and communities.
