Ghanaian teenager, Obed Obeng Danso of the Community Development and Vocational Technical Institute (CONVOTECH) in Tarkwa in the Western Region, has built his first car.
The 18-year-old's vehicle runs on fuel with almost no challenge as it moves with no impediments on the road.
Danso told Ghanaweb on BizTech that he always dreamt of building a vehicle, and through determination, he finally made it a reality.
He worked with limited resources
Despite his little resources, Danso's resilience led him to buy scrap parts of a discarded three-wheeled vehicle, known in Ghanaian parlance as 'Aboboyaa', to finish his work.

After building his first car, Danso said he wants to become a professional to train others in the skill, especially young people.
