Chubb Life Insurance Vietnam Company Limited (Chubb Life Vietnam) today announced the company’s continued support of four primary schools in Central Vietnam, which were sponsored and built with funds donated by the company from 2011 to 2014.

Under the auspices of the Central Region Natural Disaster Prevention and Support Fund, the Chubb Charitable Foundation International and Chubb Life Vietnam have donated computers, books and equipment, valued at about VND 900 million ($41,000), to supply the libraries and study laboratory of four schools - Xuan Lam in Phu Yen province, Trieu Do No.1 in Quang Tri province, Quang Thanh No.2 in Thua Thien-Hue province and Vinh Thanh No.2 in Nghe An province.

“We believe providing care and support to children is necessary for our society’s future. Our support to local schools over the past few years as well as this new donation aligns with our vision in contributing to education in a sustainable way,” said Lam Hai Tuan, country president of Chubb Life Vietnam. “We believe the new schools, equipped with the facilities we sponsored, will serve many generations of students. We hope our efforts will help these students on their education journey and grow up to be responsible citizens. This project is also one of our ways to express our long term commitment to Vietnam”.

Being a socially responsible organisation is one of the top priorities for Chubb Life Vietnam. Since it commenced operation in Vietnam 11 years ago, Chubb Life has actively contributed to Vietnam’s education system through its “Crossing Waves Fund”, a charitable fund launched in 2005. As of today, approximately VND 19 billion ($850,000) has been donated to meet education needs via this fund, including building schools and providing scholarships to 1,200 university students in need.

The Chubb Charitable Foundation International is one of three charitable foundations associated with Chubb Group. In 2015, the combined foundations of Chubb and its predecessor companies made grants and matching gifts of more than $7.5 million to support innovative initiatives around the globe.

In 2015, The Chubb Charitable Foundation International, in partnership with Chubb Life Vietnam, funded the rebuilding of the Yen My Primary School in Yen My commune in the central province of Thanh Hoa.

In 2013, the foundation provided a two-year grant of $465,400 to Roots of Peace (ROP) for the expansion of the Sustainable Horticulture and Agriculture Development Project (SHADE) in Quang Tri. With this grant, ROP has expanded this programme to provide subsidised plants and equipment, technical training, and follow-up activities through farmer field schools, farm visits, and mentoring to over 850 Vietnamese farmers in Quang Tri.
