BIKES FROM BAMBOO: The Ghana Bamboo Bikes Initiative

A beautiful and inspiring initiative coming out of Ghana is the Ghana Bamboo Bikes. Basically,

The Ghana Bamboo Bikes Initiative is a social enterprise that addresses climate change, poverty, rural-urban migration and youth unemployment by creating jobs for young people, especially women, through the building of high quality bamboo bicycles.
