Where we work

OMEP is an international non profit, civil society organization that works all over the world. Its National Committees are active in more than 60 countries around the world.

At present, OMEP is working in 5 Regions, each one chaired by a Regional Vice President appointed at the World Assembly for a three-year (3-year) period, which can be renewed once.

Each National Committee belongs to a Region of OMEP: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America and the Caribbean, and Latin America.

Regional Assemblies are held at least once a year, comprising members of the National Committees of the Region concerned, upon convening with the Regional Vice President. These meetings are aimed at defining the programmes and projects of the Region in accordance with the Strategic Plan approved at the World Assembly and also reviewing the work of the Regions and determining future activities.

The OMEP Vice President of the African Region is Nyamikeh Kyiamah vpafrica@worldomep.org

At the moment, there are 7 National Committees and 1 Preparatory Committee: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Mauritius, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone (Preparatory Committee).

Africa is the second-largest continent, and is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Atlantic Ocean. It is divided in almost equal parts by the Equator. According to the United Nations, there are 54 countries in Africa today.

Africa shows great cultural and linguistic diversity, recognizing several subregions. The five UN subregions are: North Africa, East Africa, Central Africa, West Africa and Southern Africa. More than 2000 native and colonial languages are spoken.
