This Ghanaian built a cool water based bicycle to ferry school kids

Many Ghanaians are creating and building amazing stuff with their creativity to meet various needs in their society.

They are innovative and super talented.

Frank Darko, 27 is a student and resides in Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana.  He has come out with an interesting invention he calls a trifad. It is is a bicycle that moves on water.


Frank tell Business Insider Sub Saharan Africa that he designed the bicycles that move on water for school kids in deprived communities.

"I was watching a documentary and I saw school children swimming to cross a river before going to school at the next village. The children had to wait to be dried before wearing their school uniform. They do this every day. When I saw that I said to myself how can we help these children with such an issue. The first solution that came to my mind was the construction of a bridge. That was too expensive for me.I started thinking deep and God finally brought the bicycle idea"

Kids who live in around water bodies sometimes have issues crossing over for school. This was the inspiration for his invention.
