Sharaf Mahama, the son of former president John Mahama has embarked on a project to support kids in Bole through football.
Recall, a couple of days ago, he took to his Instagram handle to reveal that the COVID-19 pandemic gave him the opportunity to spend more time with his family and also think of ways back which he can help communities in Ghana.
He wrote: “The pandemic has been an odd time for everyone. It has given me time to spend with loved ones and it has also let me work on things I don’t normally have the opportunity to work on Got a line of projects coming out soon Stay tuned…. 15/11/2020

As promised, Sharaf took a trip to his home town Bole, in the Northern region to support kids who aim to shape careers as footballers.
Sharaf’s main aim is to support young people in Bole who aspire to become footballers but are lacking the needed support and encouragement.
He recently hosted a football tournament in the town, bringing together all footballers in Bole to train with him.
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.”
Sharaf promised that he’ll keep supporting the young footballers in Bole in the little way he can so that they can achieve their dreams of becoming great footballers on larger platforms.
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.
