The girl known as Benedicta Kyeremaa, a class six pupil of ‘Obo Presby B’ located at Kwahu Obo, in the Eastern Region was seen by the Black Queens player playing football in a video posted by Ghana’s dancing teacher, Percy Jackson.

The striker, Gifty Ayew Asare after watching the video took a step ahead to the school to present a proposal that she will “take care of the girl’s education, her life activities and also help her to bring out the football talent.”
