Vivo Energy Ghana, in collaboration with United Way Ghana and Academic City University College, has launched a new renewable energy project titled "Green for Clean Ghana." 

This initiative aims to support La Enobal Basic School and La Presbyterian School, particularly benefiting final-year students preparing for their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The project, which introduces renewable energy solutions such as bulbs powered by sustainable energy sources, seeks to improve the lives of students by providing reliable lighting during power outages, commonly known as "Dumsor." 

The theme for this initiative is "Building a Sustainable Future, the Green for Clean."

During the launch event, Mrs. Shirley Tony Kum, Managing Director and Corporate Communications Manager for Vivo Energy Ghana, handed over the renewable energy torch lamps to the schools. 

In her speech, Mrs. Kum emphasized the importance of supporting the La community and noted that this initiative follows a plastic recycling project introduced at the same school in 2023.

Madam Habiba Kotomah, the Education Director of the La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly in the Greater Accra Region, expressed her gratitude to Vivo Energy Ghana for their significant support.

 She highlighted the positive impact that such projects have on the educational environment.

The Headmaster of La Enobal Basic School, Mr. Michael K. Ofonkor, also shared his appreciation for Vivo Energy Ghana's contributions. 

He expressed confidence that the promises made by the company would be fulfilled, bringing substantial benefits to the students and the school.
