Schalke midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng to build school in Kumasi to help needy
Germany-born midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has revealed that he will build a school in his father’s hometown of Kumasi to help needy kids attain education.
The Schalke star, who switched nationality from Germany to player for his father’s country, revealed that the Ghanaian way of life is attractive despite the difficulties in life.
Boateng was at the end of a lot of flak after quitting the Black Stars but has regained the loves of the fans following his return to help the country qualify for the World Cup.
The Black Stars player says he is planning the building of the school as charity with his fiancée Melissa Satta as he seeks to build closers ties with the country of his father.
“I have my family there, from my father’s side. I am on the phone with my uncle regularly. I want to build a school in the area where my father has been born in Kumasi. I am doing that all alone with my fiancée. I am trying to get closer,” Kevin-Prince Boateng said.
“People are happy in Ghana. That’s what’s always astonishing me, there are a lot of people that don’t have much but are happy nevertheless. It’s just nice to see how the people are dancing on the streets, how they celebrate.
“They are just always happy. If you walk around in Germany you see people with their heads down, though they are so rich, not only in terms of money but in terms of everything. And then you see the people in Ghana and see that they are happy,” Boateng opined.
The Ghana international is part of the provisional 26-man panel coach Kwesi Appiah announced for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
