Kevin-Prince Boateng and girlfriend Melissa Sata have been made ambassadors for a campaign against racism and discrimination.

The ex Ghana international has now joined hands with his model girlfriend, Sata to lead a global campaign racism and discrimination – an initiative of Italian clothing line Silvian Heach Kids.
Chief Executive of the Italian fashion firm Mena Marano explained the rationale behind the selection of Boateng and Sata to lead the campaign.
