Zambikes

I got to meet these guys briefly during my visit to Lusaka back in April. Not only are they building bikes – using Zambian workers – that will be useful in the everyday life of a Zambian, but they are also building a bike made from locally grown bamboo to sell in the States, the profits of which go back into the company in Zambia.

The BBC also picked up the story a few weeks back.

UPDATE: Here’s another related website.
