What is PGA?
The role of the PGA goes beyond that of explaining the PGP and Medishield Life to the Pioneers. Through engagements, not only can the PGA be a listening ear to the stories that the Pioneer has to tell, they can also discover pioneers who need help but don’t know where to get it.

Mei Nah, 60 year old Pioneer Generation Ambassador
Born in Indonesia, Mei Nah has been in Singapore for 29 years now since 1987. As an Indonesian Chinese, she is a real asset as a PGA as she is fluent in Mandarin, Malay and a variety of dialects which are the common tongues of pioneers on the ground.
She is the very first batch of PGAs sent out into the community back in September 2014 and was much more liable to rejection in the earlier days of her work as the term PGA is not well known in the community unlike now.
She used to volunteer with the RCs and brings her children to the CCs for performances. That was where she got to know some of the Programme Coordinators who recruited her to be a PGA when PGO was set up in 2014.
As her children have grown up and with her free time, she took up the offer and has been a PGA ever since. Never thinking too much with it but just giving up what time she has to offer to the work of a PGA.
Mei Nah, 60岁的建国一代大使
出生于印度尼西亚，从 1987 年至今，Mei Nah 已在新加坡居住了二十九年。身为一名印尼乔华，她不止精通于马来语和英语，她也会不同的方言。而作为一名建国一代大使，这更是宝贵的才能来与熟说方言的年长人士解释说明建国一代的配套。
2014 的9 月，在建国一代大使限为人知的时候，作为第一批被出的大使，Mei Nah 面对了许多挑战，也受到社区的排斥和拒绝。但，她没放弃， 反而运用自己 的额外时间和口才慢慢地把这个配套推展给建国一代的长辈们。
现今，Mei Nah 还是持续地付出时间和精力于作为一个建国一代大使。
