For those hearing about Vivo Energy Uganda for the first time, we shall bring you up to speed. The company holds the licence to offer Shell’s products and services across the African continent.
And while their focus should be fuel or oil, Vivo Energy Uganda has been at the forefront of teaching road safety to children and equally has environment as one of the key pillars of its corporate social responsibility initiatives. Last year, the energy company launched a road safety education programme in which they trained thousands of school children and Boda boda riders on safe road usage.
And in a move to ease their campaigns among children, Vivo Energy Uganda earlier this week joined Nema and NFA to support Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green on their upcoming second Kid’s Climate Change Conference. The annual conference, which was launched last year is a major event during which over 250 child delegates representing 30 key schools in Uganda will come together to present ideas on how the environment can best be preserved.
“Ours is to instill into children the idea that growing up and taking care of their environment is their own responsibility. For an organisation of Vivo Energy’s stature joining the cause gives us more hope that the children’s voices really matter. I would like to thank Vivo Energy Uganda for joining us in this struggle to empower out children to be the future custodians of our environment,” Joseph Masembe, the CEO Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green (pictured) told us.
Masembe was however tightlipped about the details of the financial injection by Vivo Energy Uganda. The second annual kids’ climate change conference will take place on the Earth Day on April 22, at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel.
