Vivo Energy Ghana Set to Promote Green Energy through the Green4Clean Project

In a significant move to foster sustainable energy solutions within the educational sector and demonstrate its commitment to environmental stewardship, Vivo Energy Ghana, the Shell Licensee, in partnership with the United Way Ghana and the Academic City University College, have launched an innovative sustainable development initiative dubbed Green4Clean Schools Renewable Energy Project for schools in its communities.

The launch also included the donation of solar lamps to all final year students of La Enobal Basic School and La Presby Primary School A&B to ensure they have a reliable source of light as they prepare towards their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in July.

Under the theme, ‘Building a sustainable future’ the Green4Clean Schools Renewable Energy project seeks to empower and provide students of beneficiary schools with an in-depth understanding of various renewable energy sources, including solar energy. With the introduction of innovative educational programmes and practical demonstrations, the project aims to inspire the next generation to embrace sustainable energy solutions and raise awareness about environmental challenges and the importance of adopting sustainable energy practices within the school and the broader community.

In her keynote speech, Shirley Tony Kum, Corporate Communications Manager at Vivo Energy Ghana, who spoke on behalf of the Managing Director, reiterated the company’s dedication 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. Each solar lamp donated, each panel installed, each lesson taught, and each mind inspired may seem like a small step, but collectively, have the power to transform our world,” she said.

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 emphasised the importance of the project in helping to address current climate issues, stating that the project’s 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.

The Chairperson and Director of Education of the La-Dade Kotopon Municipal Assembly, Madam Habiba Kotomah stated that by integrating renewable energy solutions into educational structures, “we are setting an example and demonstrating the transformative potential of sustainable technologies.”
