To further cope with the challenges posed by the outbreak of the coronavirus especially in schools across the country, insurance operators have continued to support children’s’ online education with laptops, data bundles and others education tools that could assist them in driving quality education in the country.

With the federal and some state governments enforcing physical and social distancing rules to limit human physical contacts to curb the spread of the virus, the Chief Marketing Officer, AXA Mansard, Mrs Jumoke Odunlami, while speaking on the development, said: “We believe children are the keys to the better Nigeria that we all dream about and thus we are committed to helping prepare them to achieve their hopes and aspirations.”

Odunlami, added that “We are aware that many parents have turned to the comfort of online learning to engage their kids during these unprecedented times, ensuring their learning journeys continue. We want to support these parents as much as we can, we want to support their kids as much as we can”

She maintained “Kids remain the joy of every parent, every nation and every society. At AXA Mansard, children remain at the heart of all we do.

The event which started last week had in participation lots of children gunning for prizes such as Laptops, school supplies and Data Bundles to support the educational learning online.

Several kids participated by post¬ing pictures of themselves with a caption that best described them on their Instagram and Facebook pages using the hashtags: AXAKidsRock AXAMansard.

A policyholder of one of the insurance companies in the industry, Yemi Arogundade, who spoke to The Guardian on the development commended those of underwriters that took this gesture as a way of giving back to the society said it is the only way now since both federal government and states have directed to keep social distancing.

According to him, this would definitely help our children’s in schools because they are the leader of tomorrow.
