Sharaf Mahama, the son of former President John Dramani Mahama, is on a mission to support kids in his hometown through football.
The 23-year-old is known to be very passionate about football, having previously played for Belgian side KV Mechelen.
He vowed to keep supporting them with donations to help them achieve their dreams of becoming professional footballers.
“This place means a lot to me; the culture, the people, the passion and the love for football,” he said about the project.
“It’s always been my family’s tradition to go back to my hometown Bole, which is located in the Northern part of Ghana, to celebrate Christmas with them and to show the love during the holidays.”
“This time around, I embarked on a mission with my team to offer our support, encouragement, and love through football.
“I believe in opportunities and being here with the kids, it shows me that there’s more to life than just materialistic things. The kids here are so talented and I feel like, with the right opportunity and resources, they can make a better life for themselves,” Sharaf added.
