Corporate Affairs Director of KGL Group, Ken Mpare expressed his pleasure at the signing, which as he noted, signified the start of the partnership between the company and the sports authorities.
“KGL’s social accountability goes beyond just giving back to society or charity cases, but encompasses the complete integration of KGL’s business divisions and operations to impact all aspects of society economically, socially, and environmentally,” he said.
He reiterated KGL Group’s commitment to the GFA and the Ministry of Youth and Sports in exploring areas of collaboration towards the collective goal of sports development, including social impact across sports through the group’s CSR wing, the KGL Foundation.
In receiving the presentation, the Minister for Youth and Sports, Mustapha Yussif, expressed delight about the collaboration towards developing sports especially, with the support geared towards the national football teams.
He promised that the resources would be managed appropriately and channeled towards fulfilling the intended objective and achieving the aspiration of Ghanaians.
