The Ghana Bamboo Bikes is an initiative seeking to produce bicycles from Bamboo in Ghana.

These Eco friendly bicycles are 75% made from bamboo and contributes to the reduction of carbon emissions. Most of the products are exported to EU countries.

In 2020,

  • Bernice Dapaah launched Ghana Bamboo Bikes Initiative as a way to create local jobs and promote low-carbon transport.
  • More than half of its employees are women and for every bike sold, one is given to a schoolchild to help that child save time getting to school.

Bernice Dapaah calls bamboo “a miracle plant”, because it grows so fast and absorbs carbon. But it can also work wonders for children’s education and women’s employment – as she’s discovered.

Bamboo is abundant in her native Ghana, where she runs a social enterprise that employs women to transform it into bicycles which are exported all over the world.
