Google has launched Google for Nonprofits in Nigeria. Google for Nonprofits aims to empower not-for-profit organizations by providing them with free premium services.

For organizations that qualify, Google for Nonprofits gives access to a collection of premium apps – the same tools large enterprise corporations use – at no cost. Once approved, qualifying nonprofits can gain access to programs such as Google Ad Grants, G-Suite for Nonprofits, YouTube’s nonprofit program, and more. This assists nonprofit organizations to work more quickly and efficiently to reach a wider audience, spur more supporters to take action, and tell their story in a more compelling way.

Nonprofits can qualify for a grant of up to $10,000 a month that is available for six months through October 2020, to spend on text-based ads among other offerings. For an NPO to be eligible for the Google for Nonprofits program, it must be a registered nonprofit charitable organization in Nigeria and verified by TechSoup Nigeria. It must also meet eligibility criteria listed on the Google for Nonprofits page – https://www.google.com/nonprofits/eligibility/.

“Nonprofits face unique challenges when making decisions about what technology to acquire amid competing demands for funding and resources. Our overall goal is to provide access to tools and technology quickly and effectively so that these organizations can focus their efforts and resources directly towards achieving their goals,” says Titi Akinsanmi, Head, Government Affairs and Public Policy, West Africa, Google.

Google also announced its philanthropic arm, Google.org will be giving the grant to Teach for Nigeria, a non-profit organization focused on support for students in underserved communities in Nigeria while the COVID-19 school closures persist.

The grant will fund a 2-year teacher fellowship program to ensure more students in underserved communities get access to quality education, delivered by well-trained teaching staff.  It will also fund an educational intervention program to help children in underserved areas get an education through alternative means like TV, radio and on-the-street public communications.

Google training resources and programs for upskilling teachers working in target communities will be deployed, and Google Digital Skills training curriculum and resources will be leveraged for this program.

“Our plan is to provide support and create partnerships that will ensure that children from underserved communities are able to access the required level of education during these times,” Akinsanmi says.

“Teach for Nigeria is working towards developing platforms that allow Nigeria’s educational system to support all children to thrive and create a better future for themselves and their communities. Now more than ever, we must do whatever can be done to ensure that quality and relevant learning is happening, for all our children regardless of where they are on the map. We are excited and confident that this collaboration with Google will move us a step closer to achieving our goals in these times.” says Folawe Omikunle, CEO, Teach for Nigeria.

Chubb launches “Chubb LifeBalance” in Korea, a 360 degree personalised Health and Well-being App

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA - Media OutReach - 12 April 2021 - Chubb today announced its release of "Chubb LifeBalance" in Korea, a digital health and well-being application that encourages people to incorporate healthy routines into their lifestyle.

Chubb LifeBalance comprehensively assesses the lifestyle of users and provides a holistic view of health to help them to objectively measure and manage their own health condition.


Once users set their personal goals within the app, such as walking 5,000 steps a day, reducing snack consumption, and establishing a meditation and/or sleep routine etc., the coaching functionality starts to monitor and encourage the users to achieve their goals.


Chubb LifeBalance tracks and records over 115 different activities—including yoga, swimming, boxing, and meditation, and lets users invite their friends and family to join challenges and compete in these activities together. It connects with a full range of health devices and other apps such as Fitbit, Strava and Garmin.


Based on over 2,500 clinical papers and years of clinical data collected from over 300 million people, reputable teams from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) USA participated in building a credible health score system behind the app so that users can effectively monitor their overall health and well-being.


The health points, based on activities and goal achievements set on the app, can be exchanged for mobile vouchers at various coffee shops, gas stations, and grocery stores to enjoy varied benefits. These are only available as exclusive incentives to existing Chubb customers.


Edward Ler, Country President of Chubb's general insurance business in Korea said, "Chubb LifeBalance was created to offer more advanced and personalized health and well-being services for the customers in Korea who lead busy lifestyles. We believe Chubb LifeBalance will help our customers strive towards a sustainable and balanced lifestyle."


The app is currently available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
