Since 2012, the 'Regional Day of Service (RDS)’ has been an annual event for employees in our Asia Pacific offices to engage in a diverse range of local community projects that align with Chubb's philanthropic support and initiatives.
Chubb employees across 14 countries and territories, including Singapore, participate in community projects to increase educational opportunities for underprivileged children. The Chubb team in Singapore organised an educational workshop for the children from Canossaville Children and Community Services (CCCS) to learn more about the science behind air pressure and buoyancy. CCCS has been our adopted charity since 2016. The centre runs an integrated pre-school and student care centre in the Aljunied-MacPherson area. Their programmes cater to both mainstream, as well as those with additional needs, giving priority to families living in lower income neighbourhoods.
2019 RDS in Singapore: The Chubb team arranged an interactive Science workshop for the students in November, during the school holidays. The students participated in the stage show and hands-on demonstration of various Science concepts including - Wonders of Dry Ice (States of Matter), Mini Vortex Generator (Air Pressure) and Bouncing Polymer Ball (Che-Mystery).
