Kumawood actor, Yaw Dabo, has set up a soccer academy in Kumasi to nurture football talents among the youth.
He told Nana Romeo on Accra100.5FM’s ‘Entertainment Capital’ on September 5, 2020, that the establishment of a soccer academy stems from his strong passion for football.
He also said it is his way of helping the youth who want to pursue a career in football.
Christened Dabo Soccer Academy, the diminutive actor noted that through the academy, a good number of the unemployed youth in Ghana will be engaged to explore opportunities to use their talent.
“We’ve realized that not every young person wants a white-collar job. Everyone has a talent and that is the little we can do,” he stated.
He disclosed that applicants will be housed in a facility based in Kumasi but the opportunities are open to all across the country.
Yaw Dabo, however, noted that due to the ban on contact sports as a result of COVID-19, activities have not begun in earnest, adding that the contributions of Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah and Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku have been instrumental.
