Picture Book Month: Courage

20 Nov

20An inspirational story about never giving up and working hard to reach your goal. Emmanuel was born with a fully developed leg and in an area of Ghana where having a disability was seen as a curse and bad luck. But his mother never gave up on him, teaching him to never give up and to continue to work hard for what he wanted. Emmanuel went to school, worked to help support his family and even rode a bicycle around Ghana to promote the rights of people with disabilities in Ghana. Emmanuel now works with educators, members in the government and organizations to help others with disabilities gain access to wheelchairs as well as reach for their own potential.
