Neil McCarthy travels to Ghana to meet the Apostle Asafo - who is both a preacher and technological innovator.

He has been encouraging young people in his church to realize their potential and produce goods that are "Made in Ghana."

From curtains which open when you clap to luxury vehicles, the products coming out of his workshop are teaching technical skills to young Ghanaians which he hopes will be of use in the wider marketplace.

Neil is guided around his remarkable world of innovations and asks whether his unconventional methods can do anything to promote the development of Ghana's manufacturing industry.
