As a part of AIG’s global commitment to Road Safety, AIG Singapore launched their new Road Safety Initiative aimed at children between the ages of three to five. AIG rolled out the program on December 5th, 2014 for over 50 children – and is aiming to educate over 1000 students in Singapore by the end of 2015.
AIG is committed to promoting Road Safety awareness and educating the public on the importance of Road Safety. According to the World Health Organization’s 2013 Global Status Report on Road Safety, 28% of road fatalities in Singapore involved pedestrians, and the most vulnerable in that group are the elderly and children. Due to these alarming statistics, AIG Singapore decided to focus on children.
Six AIG staff volunteers participated in the inaugural AIG Road Safety Program. “It was a fun experience for me and I enjoyed interacting with the children. This Road Safety Workshop teaches children road safety basics in an entertaining way, allowing them to learn through interactive activities. I look forward to future sessions,” said AIG volunteer Shilpa Tumma.
“AIG has been protecting road users for decades. As one of the leading Auto Insurance providers in the Asia Pacific region, and a part of the Singapore community for over 70 years, we consider it our duty to take care of the people and communities where we live and operate,” explained Andrew Byrne, Head of Auto Insurance Asia Pacific.
