Ghanaian football player, Baba Abdul Rahman, a of Bundesliga club FC Augsburg, also provided 100 autograph cards in support of the donation, and a projector was sourced for the children?s home primary school. British Airways transported all the items from Germany to Ghana, completely free of charge, in support of the donation.

Mr. Schrems who is also the junior teams manager of the TSV Kreuzwertheim Sporting Club visited Ghana to coordinate the distribution of the charity goods, and also held football trainings with children in Danfa and Dodowa, both in Ghana?s Greater Accra Region.

The Mother of All Nations Foundation was founded in1996 as a charity home in Madina, Accra, to support street children who have migrated to the urban areas. Currently the foundation is providing preschool centres that provide quality tuition and food to children in deprived areas, as well as vocational training in areas such as fashion, hairdressing and bead making.

Mr Schrems acknowledges how difficult, but satisfying it is to promote the interest of young people whilst ensuring their academic excellence. ?There are so many innocent children on our streets; their talents and future are in jeopardy and thus we need more such gestures of solidarity to protect, train and bring to light the excellence and talent of these young people,? explained Schrems.

For many years, Schrems and his team have donated football shirts to children around the world, including countries such as Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Senegal, South Africa and the Solomon Islands.
