Mantrac Ghana, authorized dealers for Caterpillar products in the country, last Friday officially launched a state-of-the-art training facility and handed it over to the Right to Dream Academy (RtD) at Old Akrade in the Eastern Region.

The project, christened ?The Mantrac Centre? is to offer the 75 players at the academy a turf that would enhance day-to-day activities on the field.

The centre constructed by Mantrac Ghana comprises eight first-class grass pitches, and it is to provide Africa?s premier football academy with some of the best sports facilities in Ghana.

Founder and CEO of Right to Dream, Tom Vernon indicated:??I am hugely encouraged by the collaboration with Mantrac Ghana. ?Their generosity and support of the Right to Dream Academy is a great example of the positive impact the private sector can make in the development of young, African talent.?

Managing Director of Mantrac Ghana Emad Adeeb, said:??Mantrac Ghana has played a vital role in the total development of Ghana for the past 75 years ? we do not just provide world class construction & mining equipment, but also invest in people.

?The Right to Dream Academy fits perfectly in our corporate social responsibility strategy ? to impact our communities with sustainable initiatives that will travel beyond Ghana. This marks the first stage of our collaboration with the RtD Academy.?

Some Executive Committee members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) as well as members of the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) comprising Tony Baffoe, Stephen Appiah, Augustine Arhinful and Joe Addo graced the event.

Mantrac has gone above and beyond with its support for RtD by also helping with the general road construction work at the academy, coupled with the site preparation for the construction of the RtD Girls? dormitory, contributing to the successful establishment of Africa?s first residential girls? academy in May 2013.
