Motorola Solutions Foundation Continues Child Safety Program in Latin America
Wednesday, August 14, 2019 | Comments

For the eighth year in a row, the Motorola Solutions Foundation the charitable and philanthropic arm of Motorola Solutions, reaffirmed its commitment to Latin American children and communities through its “Connected by Safety” program. In collaboration with the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI) and FORO 21, the educational program encourages children to play an active role in keeping their communities safe. 

This year, the program plans to conduct 115 workshops across Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile and Mexico, benefiting more than 60 schools and 6,700 children. Children will be taught how to recognize dangerous situations and identify the safety organization responsible for helping in each case, as well as their respective emergency telephone numbers. This program is running in 2019 based on a grant that was awarded in 2018.
"We live in a region with many challenges when it comes to safety, and there are many heroes working to keep us safe," said Patricia Kapusta, program coordinator on behalf of FORO 21. “Being able to introduce children to these heroes, who then use games to teach them how to ask for help in dangerous situations, is something that fills us with pride, because we feel that through Connected by Safety we are making a difference, helping to build a much safer region.”
Connected by Safety is a key program supported by Motorola Solutions Foundation in Latin America because of its strong focus on public safety education which engages youth with first responders and the impact the program makes throughout the region.
“Connected by Safety supports one of our main program focus areas: public-safety education,” said Monica Mueller, executive director of the Motorola Solutions Foundation. “With this program we are providing Latin America children with the tools they need to protect themselves and their close circle, aligned with our commitment to building safer cities.”
