KGL Group has partnered with the Asamoah Gyan Foundation to drive a collective agenda towards youth entrepreneurship and capacity building.

This is part of its corporate responsibility activities geared towards empowering the youth and inspiring wealth building.

The wholly owned Ghanaian entity with subsidiaries operating across digital solutions, innovations, fintech, and logistics company, operating through its CSR wing, the KGL Foundation has signed a one-year partnership agreement with the Asamoah Gyan Foundation.

This agreement will leverage both the Ghanaian football legend, Asamoah Gyan, as a global icon and KGL Foundation’s mission to empower communities, changing lives to inspire a new generation of youth entrepreneurs working to create value and wealth across diverse fields of expertise.

This newly formed relationship will seek to explore avenues for collaboration, with a core focus on joint initiatives between both Foundations, across the pillars of Sports (Football and Tennis), Education (STEM for Girls) and Youth Empowerment.

Initiatives discussed in the agreement include a planned ‘LeGyandery’ book tour to be hosted by Asamoah Gyan under his Foundation, which will access select Senior High Schools for a mentorship session with the youth and coaching sessions under the KGL Foundation Under-17 Juvenile, league among others.

Speaking on the significance of this historic occasion, the Executive Chairman of the KGL Group, who also serves as Board Chairman of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, hailed this agreement as a great platform for the Group to advance its mandate of providing value for the communities it operates within.

“KGL Group has sought to deliver excellence and dexterity in all our operations since its inception. This allows us to work together to fulfil our joint mission of poverty eradication through wealth creation. Giving back is essential to our operations, and I see this as a unique opportunity for us to impact the next generation of entrepreneurs and footballers”.

He added, “This also serves as a fantastic opportunity for Asamoah Gyan as he winds down his football career. He has shown an apt for entrepreneurship which excites me! I hope he will further build on his experiences as he embarks on this new stage of his life”.

Football legend Asamoah Gyan also expressed his profound gratitude to Alex Dadey and the KGL Group for the mutual understanding of the need to invest in youth development and for officially partnering with the Asamoah Foundation in this regard.

He added, “I have achieved much in football for Mother Ghana. I wear Ghana on my sleeve everywhere I go.

“This partnership will further strengthen my resolve to continue to fly high the flag of Ghana and to fulfil the ultimate wish of giving back to my country”.
