DRP – East and Southern Africa

Driver Recognition Programme 2018 

The Driver Recognition Programme recognises the driver who is an inspiring example for others in terms of road safety and health, cost efficiency and friendliness. It also acknowledges the corresponding organisation who understands the critical role the drivers play in delivery of aid and development, and take the time to show their appreciation of their drivers.

After the first two highly successful Driver Recognition Programmes in East Africa, Fleet Forum is pleased to announce, with the support of title sponsor UPS, a third East Africa Driver Recognition Programme in Kenya in September 2018.

Founded in 1951, The UPS Foundation leads the glo- bal citizenship programs for UPS, which includes philanthropy, corporate relati- ons and community engagement in local, national, and international communities.

Road Safety is a major global issue and is the number one killer of teens around the world. At UPS safety is a top priority. Each year, thousands of UPS drivers travel millions of miles accident free. The UPS Foundation engages with organizations around the globe to enhance community safety. Through the UPS Road Code® Program, UPS leverages the safe-driving expertise of UPS drivers and time-tested driver training techniques to educate novice teen drivers on road safety.
