According to Mr. Rob Wilkinson, Country President of ACE’s general insurance operation in Thailand, “ACE is committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. We are aware that some university students have innovative ideas to help the underprivileged and contribute towards a greener environment; however, they lack the funds to implement their plans. Hence, we have introduced the ‘Enhancing Lives with ACE’ project to offer these students the opportunity to bring their ideas to fruition.”

Ms. Sally O’Hara, Country President ofACE’s life insurance operation in Thailand, added, “Apart from creating awareness among the youth of the importance of giving back to the society, the ‘Enhancing Lives with ACE’ project aims to make a difference in the lives of the less privileged and contribute towards environmental protection. ACE will therefore select quality CSR proposals that will result in visible improvements for the communities for which they are intended. We arelooking forward to receiving the proposalsfrom the students and will work closely with the winning teams to execute their plans.”
