The England-based Ghanaian coach has donated items worth millions of cedis to the Teshie Children’s Home.

 
 

Aston Villa U23 head coach, George Boateng extended his kind gesture to the Greater Accra-based Orphanage home as part of his activities marking his festive season in his native country.

 
Boateng visited the Teshie Children's Home on Sunday with his family to make the presentation aimed to put smiles back on the faces of the underprivileged kids.
 
Items donated by the former Dutch international includes bags of rice, cooking oil, assorted drinks, biscuits, toiletries and undisclosed amount of money which was given to the Orphanage home.
 
He interacted with the kids and shared his story of making it as a professional footballer in the European country to inspire them.
 
During the interaction, some of the kids told him they wanted to pursue football as a profession, he urged them not to give up hope and learn hard in school.
 
"I spoke to the children about education, how I was when I was young, a little bit of introduction about what I had to go through to become a footballer, and the main priority was education,” Boateng said.
 
"I think they got the message quite well and when you see how happy they are, even the singing and dancing, for them to be involved, it’s quite humbling.”
 
Receiving the items, proprietress of the Teshie Children's Home, Mrs. Janet Anyeley Parker and other members expressed their profound gratitude to the Aston Villa U23 gaffer for putting back smiles on the faces of the deserted kids in the festive season.
 
Boateng was appointed to handle the Aston Villa U23 in September.
 
The former Feyenoord midfielder was born to Ghanaian parents who hailed from Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region but opted to represent Netherlands at the international level.
 
He capped four times for the Dutch senior national team.
