The United Nations World Food Programme and World Vision, Fleet Forum’s long-time partners, will host the 2016 Driving Champion Finals, the final event of the Driver Recognition Programme in which the best driver from different countries and humanitarian agencies compete to be the best driver and win the award.

About the Programme

The Fleet Forum Driver Recognition Programme is an eco- and safe driving competition that recognizes the important role that drivers play in the sustainability and health and safety objectives of aid and development organisations. The programme is modelled on successful corporate sector initiatives, which show that such efforts lead to cost savings, fewer accidents and improved employee pride. We are excited to announce that in support of the Decade of Action, the UPS Foundation has provided Fleet Forum with funding through the Road Safety Fund for the development of the Driver Recognition Programme and implementation of a regional pilot.

Participating Organisations

Based on the high density of aid and development organisations, the first regional pilot is taking place in East Africa.
In the last few months, Fleet Forum has been working together with a small group of member organisations to develop and roll-out the programme; over 200 drivers from 4 countries in the region have already signed up voluntarily.
More information about Participating Organisations can be found here.

Driving Champion Finals

Fleet Forum is pleased to announce that the Regional Finals, co-hosted by World Food Programme and World Vision, will take place on 10 – 11 June in Kenya.
