We guess you’ve heard the name Okuntakinte (Joseph Awuah Darko) a couple of times.
Well, he’s a student at the Ashesi University who studies Business Administration.
You might have heard his name in connection with the Agbogbo.Shine project.
Joseph will be competing in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo Japan.
You might have also heard a song (Melanin Girl) from him.
On the other hand, Prince Adjepong is also a student at the University of Ghana studying Sociology.
Prince had an accident while he was on his motorbike somewhere last year.
After the accident, Prince had the chance to live but live without his right leg.
Even without a leg, Prince didn’t give up, he’s had the opportunity to compete in the 2020 Paralympics.
Bello, a Nigerian migrant who is currently living in Ghana, was a victim of the Slave Trade in Libya.
He lost his leg in the process and found his way to Ghana because he believes it’s easier to survive in Ghana than in Nigeria.
Bello is part of the Race for Human Dignity campaign, a 125-mile walk from Accra to Kumasi. This campaign has been organized to create awareness to end slavery in Libya.
Joseph came up with an idea to help create awareness for Bello.
In the video below, Joseph and Prince tell us more about the Race For Human Dignity, The Olympics, and Paralympics.
