Vivo Energy Ghana, the Shell Licensee has signed an agreement to partner with the United Way Ghana, a non-governmental organisation in the Republic of Ghana to launch a renewable energy project among schools within its communities.

The move is in line with the firm’s sustainability efforts towards the environment.

The renewable energy project seeks to empower and provide students with a solid understanding of various renewable energy sources, including solar energy.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) commits both organisations to instil in the school children a sense of responsibility towards the environment and prepare them for future careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

“By introducing innovative educational programmes and practical demonstrations, the initiative 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,” the company said in a press statement.

Working closely with the Educational Director, Ghana Education Service of the La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly, the Vivo Energy Ghana renewable energy project for school children will feature a series of interactive workshops, educational tours, development of educational materials and hands-on activities designed to engage students in learning about solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources.

Through experiential learning opportunities, participants will gain deeper understanding of the environmental benefits and practical applications of renewable energy technologies.

“Partnering with the United Way Ghana on this renewable energy project underscores our commitment to environmental sustainability and community empowerment,” said Kader Maiga, Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana.

“Together, we aim to instill a sense of environmental responsibility in young learners and equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to build a greener future,” he added.


United Way Ghana shares the vision of promoting sustainable development and recognises this partnership as an important step towards achieving that goal.

“Following the successful roll-out of Cyclean in the La Enobal Basic School, we are excited to enter into another partnership with Vivo Energy Ghana to introduce school children to renewable energy. By investing in the education and engagement of young learners, we can create a ripple effect of positive change across communities and drive the transition towards renewable energy,” says Faustina Abbey, Acting Executive Director of United Way Ghana.

As part of the partnership, Vivo Energy Ghana and the United Way Ghana will also work closely with local schools within their area of operation, community centers, and educational institutions to ensure broader participation and impact.
