Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah has launched his foundation at a brief ceremony was held at the Accra City Hotel on Thursday afternoon.
The Kwesi Appiah Foundation will be supervised by a five-member board of Trustees including Samuel Nana Brew-Butler (Chairman), HE Amarkai Amarkai Amartefio (Member), Air Vice Marshall Issifu S. Kadri (Member), Mr. Emmanuel Adu Sarkodie (Member) and himself.
The ex-Ghana captain has fulfilled the promise he made just after he had been re-appointed Ghana coach in May this year.
He said: ”The objective of the foundation is to assist retired players and former national athletes in different ways. I have for this reason dedicated a percentage of my salary in that regard. Today’s inauguration of my board of Trustees, the Foundation begins a journey that I hope will change many lives.”
Appiah is getting ready to train with the Black Stars starting next week for Friday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Congo.
