Marquard & Bahls Supports the SOS International College in Tema, Ghana

Support for SOS Children’s Villages

In good tradition and as part of our commitment to improve the situation of our surrounding communities, Marquard & Bahls supports an international aid project with a sum of 100,000 euros each year. We have been working with SOS Children's Villages since 2013.

In 2018, the donation went back to a project in Africa. The SOS-International-College in Tema had a high need of support to cover the running costs. The company donation of 100,000 euros will enable 77 talented SOS young people from Africa to study at the SOS International College in Ghana for a year, thus setting the course for a promising future. One of the advantages of supporting the college in Tema is its close proximity to the Oiltanking site in Ghana. In February 2018, the Senior Group Director HSSE took the opportunity to combine his HSSE audit in Ghana with a visit to the college, which is only 4.5 km from Oiltanking's Tema office.The school director welcomed the visitor from Hamburg, the Regional HSSE Manager Oiltanking MEA Ltd., the Head of Organization, as well as local team members.

Our employees used the visit to talk to the students and were deeply impressed by their professional goals, enthusiasm and ambition.
