Appiah to be unveiled as Ambassador for Clean Cookstoves

Later in his career, he played for well-known European giants including Juventus and Fenerbahçe. He is respected worldwide for his inspirational leadership both on and off the field.

Today in Ghana, Appiah is involved in a variety of charity works focused on giving back to society and inspiring young football players.

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is a public-private partnership hosted by the UN Foundation to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women and protect the environment by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.

The Alliance’s 100 by ‘20 goal calls for 100 million households to adopt clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels by 2020.

The Alliance is working with its public, private and non-profit partners to help overcome the market barriers that currently impede the production, deployment, and use of clean cookstoves in developing countries like Ghana.
