Union Assurance Sisumaga + has lived by its philosophy of providing an uninterrupted education for every child by supporting an initiative to improve e-learning facilities in daycares located across the island.
Tablets and desktops were distributed to 397 child development centers serving 10,632 children across the country under the combined sponsorship of Union Assurance and seven other companies.
The pandemic has widened the gap in children’s education, especially with the digital adoption of learning activities. Many children have little or no access to a tablet or desktop computer, which puts their future at risk.
Union Assurance has provided 50 devices to the Probation and Child Care Services Department as part of this year’s series of National Children’s Day programs under the theme “Children Come First”.
Union Assurance’s Sisumaga + is an insurance solution that helps parents plan for their children’s future, promising uninterrupted education for every child.
