AXA Mansard Insurance, member of the AXA Group, has taken its social investment programme to educating members of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, on different solutions available for their financial security, health and general well-being.
The company which took the corps members through an awareness campaign at several NYSC camps, said the move is a demonstration of its commitment towards empowering Nigerian youths.
The company visited the Lagos, Abuja and Rivers NYSC Orientation camps, to enlighten the 2017 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course (Stream II) corps members on solutions available from AXA Mansard, such as the right investment vehicles for them, insurance for their valuables and loved ones, pensions to start saving for their retirement and health insurance for access to quality healthcare.
In addition to the awareness drive at the camps, AXA Mansard Health Insurance provided free basic medical services to Corps members, such as medical consultation, basic medical check-up, BMI and blood pressure.
Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Kola Oni, Group Head, Strategy and Marketing at AXA Mansard said, “Youth empowerment is important to us, because it affords us the opportunity to enable and propel youths to become effective drivers of change and societal transformation.”
