Vivo Energy Ghana Launches Green4Clean Schools Renewable Energy Project

Vivo Energy Ghana, the Shell Licensee, in partnership with United Way Ghana and Academic City University College, has launched an innovative sustainable development initiative called the Green4Clean Schools Renewable Energy Project for schools in its communities. The launch included the donation of solar lamps to all final-year students at La Enobal Basic School and La Presby Primary School A&B to ensure they have a reliable light source as they prepare for their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in July.

Under the theme “Building a Sustainable Future,” the Green4Clean Schools Renewable Energy Project aims to empower students with a comprehensive understanding of various renewable energy sources, particularly solar energy. Through innovative educational programs and practical demonstrations, the project aspires to inspire the next generation to embrace sustainable energy solutions, raise awareness about environmental challenges, and promote sustainable energy practices within schools and the broader community.

In her keynote speech, Shirley Tony Kum, Corporate Communications Manager at Vivo Energy Ghana, speaking on behalf of the Managing Director, reiterated the company’s commitment to nurturing a generation of eco-conscious leaders who will shape a more sustainable future. “Vivo Energy Ghana believes in the power of education as a catalyst for change.

The President of the Governing Council of United Way Ghana, Mr. Worlanyo Ocloo, commended Vivo Energy Ghana for their commitment and generous funding of the project: “Your dedication to supporting underserved communities and infectious excitement for green energy are truly inspiring,” he said. Mr. Ocloo emphasized the importance of the project in addressing current climate issues, stating that its impact extends beyond educating and preparing young minds for a responsible relationship with green energy technologies. “This project has the potential to save lives,” he added.
