Ghanaian actor, Samuel Yaw Dabo, has recently shared his motivation for establishing a soccer academy, emphasizing his desire to support talented footballers who come from less privileged backgrounds.

Dabo’s primary objective is to give back to society by providing opportunities to aspiring players. He actively visits orphanages and villages to identify and recruit potential talents for his academy.

Through this initiative, Dabo aims to uplift and empower young footballers who may not have had access to formal training or resources, allowing them to pursue their passion for the sport.

“I have the Dabo Soccer Academy, because we have to support others. That’s my dream because, when you get money, you have to give it to somebody because everybody needs help,” he told Marca.
