Vivo Energy Kenya partnered with Multiple Hauliers East Africa Limited, on road safety campaign projects in 2015. The programme dubbed Schools Road Safety Campaign aims at teaching children in public primary schools on good behavior on the road as they go to and from school. The schools chosen are along the Kenya northern corridor, because for both companies they have trucks that ply that route. The programme is designed in a way that is very interactive and even the youngest pupil can grasp the teachings. The lessons are done in 3 hours, since the audience does not have a long concentration span. There is a mix of teaching, question and answers and distribution of gifts to keep the lessons lively. In July 2015, both teams visited Ngeiya Primary School, Mai Mahiu. The school is in an area which is a major stopping center for trucks. The campaign empowered 800 pupils from Class 4, teachers and representatives from other classes. In February 2016, Schools Road Safety Campaign was held in Nguumo Primary School in Makindu. Prior to the Road Safety campaign, the school had suffered 4 fatalities and from the training they believed it will help reduce the accidents. Over 800 students were empowered. May 2016, Schools Road Safety Campaign went to Kibwayi Primary School, along Kisumu – Busia Highway, a busy road especially with heavy commercial vehicles transporting goods to Uganda. Over 500 pupils from Kibwayi and neighbouring schools were taught on road safety. The pupils became road safety ambassadors. The campaign also engaged motorbikes riders (boda bodas).
