Mr. Boateng in his own way has contributed immensely to the football fraternity in Ghana with the coming into force of Karineb football Academy.
He has developed young talents in Ghana and across the African continent in the area of football. His Academy has served and helped young talents to even gain sponsorship to further their Senior High School education at the Okuapeman Senior High School, Akropong.
Karineb Academy has produced skillful and talented players whom have featured in Ghana’s Under 17 National Team (Black Starlets) and some currently undergoing the final selection process.
Additionally, his football club gives opportunity to players to display their talents for football scouts and agents who visit the country on such missions.
The Academy is also involved in some charitable exercises as and when the need be; He recently led a team from the Karineb Academy to support the Narbita Hospital Tema with some PPEs and Toiletries for the fight against Covid-19.
I strongly recommend Mr. Boateng for the above stated award since his passion and zeal for the football fraternity is umarched. His contributions to football is highly commendable. The award will motivate and challenge him to do more.
