Eight more students benefit from Vivo Energy Kenya sponsorship in 2016

Every November the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examination is held. Over half a million students sit this examination, all with an aspiration to join secondary schools and further their education.


Unfortunately some students - although they performed very well in the exam - are not able to proceed to secondary school as their families cannot afford the fees.


One of Vivo Energy Kenya’s, (VEK) community investment focus areas is education, and with this in mind we looked for a partner who we could work with to make the dreams of some of these needy yet bright students be achieved. A partnership was inked with the Palmhouse Foundation, an NGO whose vision is to enable deserving students to realise their dreams, transform their lives, their families and society.


The foundation was formed in 2002, and has over 500 beneficiaries who have completed secondary school and over 230 have proceeded to universities.

Vivo Energy Kenya’s partnership with the Palmhouse Foundation commenced in 2014, when the first group of eight students joined the VEK family. In 2015 another eight students also joined and this year the trend has been maintained with a further eight students’ secondary school education being sponsored by VEK.

 

The criteria of picking the students was well thought out, and aligned to the previous country demarcations of Kenya’s eight provinces.  As we have Shell service stations in all eight provinces we decided to support students all across the country where we operate.

 

The sponsorship covers school fees for each student for their entire four years in secondary school. Palmhouse Foundation goes further than providing school fees, as they enable the students to be better citizens on completion of their studies.

 

Commenting on Vivo Energy Kenya’s sponsorship of the students Communications Manager Angela Munyua said: “It’s not about giving a man a fish to feed him for a day but teaching a man to fish so you can feed him for a lifetime. As well as the school education this teaching comes from mentoring sessions which are held in April, August & November as the start of the school holiday period. The students, gather in a designated location where they meet with mentors who listen to their experiences during their term, look at their performance and help the students set goals for the next term.  We are delighted to be able to support such a worthy cause.”

 

Having just completed the April mentoring session Catherine Irungu said: “I am very greatful for the sponsorship that Vivo Energy Kenya has given me. It is my dream to become a lawyer and i am working hard to ensure I achieve this goal. Vivo Energy Kenya’s support is a big boost to my aspiration and I will not let them down.”

 

The partnership between Vivo Energy Kenya and the Palmhouse Foundation is a perfect match since both organisations share values that touch on society, show respect, transformation and integrity.

Vivo Energy boosts Motor Sport with Shs.150,000,000 sponsorship

Rally aces Ronald Sebuguzi, Arthur Blick Junior and Speedway motorsport club have collectively received a total of Shs.150,000,000 sponsorship for motorsport activities from Vivo Energy Uganda. 

Both champions Ronald Sebuguzi and Arthur Blick Junior received Shs.65,000,000 each from Shell V-Power and Shell Helix respectively, while Speedway motorsport received Shs.20,000,000 from Shell Advance as sponsorship towards the motocross championship.

The sponsorship from Vivo Energy Uganda - the company that distributes and markets Shell Fuels and Lubricants, will greatly facilitate and enhance the rallying careers of the two champions, and the whole rallying fraternity in Uganda.

Speaking at the handover ceremony at Shell Bukoto, Vivo Energy Managing Director, Hans Paulsen commended Sebuguzi and Blick for their brilliant and proficient expertise in the field of rallying and encouraged them to utilize the equally proficient Shell products (Shell VPower, Shell Helix and Shell Advance) to propel them to achieve the highest possible opportunities in their respective rallying careers. 

He noted that Shell V-Power is a high quality fuel that delivers improved responsiveness and power, actively cleans the engine and protects vital vehicle parts for better performance, giving drivers a more exciting drive. This sponsorship creates a platform for Ronald Sebuguzi as the Shell V-Power ambassador to demonstrate this excitement to our consumers and remind them of the benefits of Shell VPower.

The sponsorship also creates an opportunity for Arthur Blick Junior as the brand ambassador for Shell Helix to demonstrate to our consumers the ultimate protection provided by the lubricant for their engines and the extra responsiveness and efficiency it provides.

Paulsen also assured customers of the company’s commitment to meet consumer needs through continuous innovation to improve product offering and giving customers the quality fuels they deserve.

“We are proud to be associated with champions like Ronald Sebuguzi and Arthur Blick Junior together with Speedway motor-sports club and we pledge to support them in their championships to enable them deliver to Ugandans the rallying experiences that only Shell products can enable” Paulsen concluded.
