Prudential Vietnam carries out its Corporate Social Responsibility programmes under three key pillars: Education, Healthy Living and Community Support.
Under Education, one of our signature initiatives is the ‘Good Essay Good Handwriting’ programme.

The programme encourages young students to enhance their writing skills and personalities. In 2016, the programme attracted more than 450,000 submissions.
In addition, Prudential Vietnam has sponsored the Vo Truong Toan Award for the past 19 years in Ho Chih city.
