With the commitment to being a “Lifetime partner” and bringing long-term benefits to Vietnam country and its people, Dai-ichi Life Vietnam, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan’s leading life insurer Dai-ichi Life Insurance Company Limited, yesterday organised the launching ceremony of the CSR Foundation “For A Better Life” at Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel in Hanoi.

The CSR Foundation “For A Better Life” of Dai-ichi Life Vietnam was officially granted the establishment license by the Ministry of Home Affairs on April 6, 2016, and has been acknowledged for its operation eligibility since August 10, 2016.

The foundation, with more than VND20 billion ($913,000) in total asset value, aims at supporting the community in the fields of education, medical and health care, environment and other charitable activities with the noble purpose of improving the life quality of Vietnamese people and the development of human resources for the country growth.

“The sustainable business foundation of a company lies in its responsibilities. The responsibilities of Dai-ichi Life Vietnam towards our society are to carry out the sustainable and human community supporting programmes with widespread impact over each year to help improve the life quality of local people.

“The Foundation “For A Better Life” coming into operation will facilitate the implementation of long-term and regular social activities across Vietnam in the upcoming time, contributing to affirm Dai-ichi Life Vietnam’s reputation, as well as our commitment to sustainable development in the country in the long run,” said Takasahi Fujii, chairman of Dai-ichi Life Vietnam and the honorary president of the CSR Foundation.

Besides its business endeavors, throughout more than nine years, Dai-ichi Life Vietnam has been the pioneer in many philanthropic and social programmes with contribution of over VND15 billion ($456,600), such as blood donation, funding scholarships for the needy and hard-working pupils, and granting life insurance policies to disadvantaged teachers.

Dai-ichi Life Vietnam was awarded the “Corporate Social Responsibility Award” two times by prestigious magazine Asia Insurance Review, the first time in 2013 with the programme “For a better life” to provide clean drinking water to more than 18,000 pupils of the schools in rural areas of Vietnam, and the second time in November 2015 with the programme “A million red bricks, bridging the happiness” when 10 bridges were built to facilitate the safe and convenient transportation for villagers in rural areas.

Just after more nine years doing business, Dai-ichi Life Vietnam has built a solid foundation and maintained its position as one of the four leading life insurers in Vietnam in terms of total premium, serving more than one million customers through a staff of 800 employees and 60,000 professional financial consultants.
