Sosu’s Call by Meshack Asare (1997)

sosu's call

Sosu’s Call by Ghana’s Meshack Asare is a story of heroism and resolve. Sosu, a young disabled boy who cannot walk. He misses going to school and all the activities of the other children. All alone in his family’s compound when disaster strikes on a day when everyone is away fishing, working in the fields or at school. The waters are rising. Sosu manages to make his way through the rising waters up the hill, he raises the alarm with his drumming, and saves the village from total destruction by the sea. His heroism is rewarded when a wheelchair is donated and at last he can go to school.

 

An illustration about differences, about acceptance, about what it means to be “normal.” 

Won the 1999 UNESCO 1st prize for Children’s and Young People’s Literature in the Service of Tolerance.

All these entertainment video games were not that sensible when the concept was first being used. Just like other forms of know-how, video games also have had to advance as a result of many many years. This itself is testimony on the fast growth of video games.
