Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah’s inspiring true story—which was turned into a film, Emmanuel’s Dream,—is nothing short of remarkable.
Emmanuel’s Dream will be played on Chicago Access Network Television Channel 19
Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, he was dismissed by most people—but not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, Emmanuel hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age thirteen to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing four hundred miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message: disability is not inability. Today, Emmanuel continues to work on behalf of the disabled.
