Senior Manager, General Trade [MTN Ghana] Mr. Simon Amoh has said that it is very gladdening to see physically challenged persons inspiring others to achieving their dreams.
“Indeed it is very heartwarming and encouraging to know that you have embraced the fact that disability is not inability,” Mr. Amoah said at the inaugural match of the MTN-IFSS Skate Soccer League at the Kumasi Social Club on Saturday, May 25.
“By acknowledging this fact, you are able not only to discover your dreams but you will also inspire many people facing challenges in their lives,” he added.
According to Mr. Amoh, organising the Skate Soccer is one of such exciting ways to help the physically challenged while brightening their lives.
“The story of these skaters are amazing and typically resonates with MTN’s Leadership and relationship values.
“We are inspired by the tenacity and strength of these people.
“More importantly, we hope that with the growth of this sport, other people will be attracted into the teams and it will keep them meaningfully engaged.”
Mr. Amoh further reiterated that MTN always seeks to promote a positive relationship between the brand and the customer by demonstrating unique understanding of customer need.
“We appreciate the opportunity we have to make a difference in the lives of this unique and creative people,” he said.
He, however, commended the International Federation of Skate Soccer [IFSS] for coming out with the initiative and also assured them that MTN Ghana will help them grow the sport:
“I can imagine how difficult it was to start this project and to secure funding for your activities and which is why I congratulate the International Federation of Skate Soccer for championing your cause and helping you to identify your talent in this area.
“Together with you and IFSS, we hope that Skate Soccer will grow in Ghana and beyond and that in future you will win for us Gold at the Olympic Games. Yes you can!”
The MTN-IFSS Skate Soccer League is tentatively scheduled to take place also in Accra on June 29th 2019 and July 27th 2019 respectively.
