A 16-year-old student from Kumasi in Ghana, Philimon Afriyie, is on a mission to build spot robots similar to Boston Dynamic robots to help persons with disabilities. However, with limited resources due to extreme financial constraints, the teenager’s dream hangs in the balance, but his knack to succeed is his source of motivation.

Philimon Afriyie, a student at the St. Louis Demonstration Junior High School at Mbrom in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, needs funds to purchase a 3D printer to complete the project and accomplish his dream of helping people with disabilities.

In an exclusive interview with Briefly News, Philimon Afriyie disclosed that his father died from coronavirus, a loss that was a setback to his goal, but he is refusing to throw in the towel.

”The truth is that my father died in this pandemic, and my mom doesn’t have enough money to support me with my projects,” he told Briefly News. With limited funds and no personal connection to powerful figures in society, Afriyie may not be able to complete the project.

To help achieve his goal, a GoFundMe account has been created to raised funds for the teenage inventor. Please, click the link below to support the budding Ghanaian innovator.
