Tema, Ghana and Lomé, Togo
Futurestars is an exciting education-through-sports programme working with five schools in Tema, Ghana to deliver PE & sports coaching and assisting in the refurbishment of the participating schools.
The project was founded by a joint venture between OMA Ghana Ltd, and Yinson Production WA Ltd in 2015. In 2017 OMA appointed Simon Milton to spearhead the project as OMA CSR director. Futurestars is now a registered UK charity with Fendercare Marine, Hapag-Lloyd and Prime Insurance, all on board as partners. There are plans to extend the charity’s footprint along the West African coast.
Futurestars has recently expanded its activities across the border to Togo and has started working with a local school in Lomé.
Emarito Maritime School
OMA Togo Sarl is closely involved in funding the first maritime school ever built in Togo which opened in October 2016 to offer full training & certificates for Togolese marine crew.
As well as providing funds for training for the electronic navigation simulator pictured, there are transport & logistics courses for which OMA offers training and potential work experience placements.
