Training Truck Drivers in Uganda

Total is well established in Africa, with 10,000 employees and 250 million kilometers traveled each year. In cooperation with the World Bank, we have created the NGO Safe Way Right Way (SWRW), which brings together public and private partners. In Uganda, thanks to funding received from German development agency GIZ and resources pooled with partner companies, we have been able to set up a driving school for our drivers and for other individuals. This is the first initiative of its kind in Uganda, providing end-to-end training in professional truck driving. Ramping up driver skills in this way will help improve road safety standards and also create jobs. Developed in consultation with the country’s authorities, the training program helps underpin our campaign to advocate regulations that set a minimum standard for driver education and vehicle technical requirements.
