OMA in West Africa

We have a long-term commitment to West Africa. Gary Miller, OMA Group Director, is Honorary Life Chairman of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (West Africa Branch), which facilitates and encourages local and global employers to invest in training to raise standards across West Africa.

We are proud to be the champions of some worthwhile causes in West Africa. Our flagship project – #futurestars – has seen OMA Ghana work closely in conjunction with Ipswich Town Football Academy and Yinson Holdings Berhad, to run this exciting programme working with five schools in Tema. The project delivers a weekly sports programme in the schools, runs a small development academy as well as assisting with the refurbishment of the participating schools.
