Right to Dream says to establish first girls’ football academy in Africa

Right to DreamThe Right to Dream Football (RtD) Academy says it intends to establish the first residential Girls Academy in Africa when it commences the final phase of recruitment.

The Academy will start the recruitment process Friday, April 26, 2013, it said in a press release issued today April 24, 2013 and copied to ghanabusinessnews.com.

According to RtD the Girls Academy is a unique programme, built on a trusted model that will provide students with first class education, character and leadership development and world class football development.

Its scouting network has screened over 1000 girls in Ghana and Ivory Coast to select the best female talents available for the ambitious project over the last months, it indicated.

The Academy noted that 14 girls between the ages of 10 and 13 will be given 5-year full scholarships after the final trial.

“The students will not only be given the chance to develop their football skills, but their academic and leadership skills in order to reach their true potential, and build a better life for themselves, their families and their communities in the future,” the release said.

  1. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT AND EXCELLENT INITIATIVE TO NURTURE THESE GIRLS OR YOUTH. GHANAIANS ARE TRAINNABLE IN ALL LEVELS SOON THIS IS ROLL OUT THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY THE BETTER A LOT OF TALENTS CAN BE GENERATED SINCE GHANA HAS THE MOST YOUNG POPULATION COUNTRY ON THE GLOBE

  2. This is an excellent idea. This is a welcome initiative as it gives the underprivileged in society the chance to become role models in the future. I hope Ghana as a country can adopt this concept. Bravo!! Right to Dream.
