Handmade in Ghana
All my Boo bamboos frames have a unique story to tell: each frame is manufactured with loving handicraft in Yonso, a small rural town in Mampong district of central Ghana. The unique frames are produced by a skilled team through our local partner, the Yonso Project—a nonprofit organization and its bamboo bike workshop Boomers.
Making a Local Difference
The Yonso Project is an aspiring social project dedicated to expanding educational and economic opportunities in rural Ghana; female vendors are provided with microloans to help them start or grow their own businesses, and a
scholarship program was created to enable poor and disadvantaged children to have an access to education. Building my Boo bamboo frames also gives young people an opportunity to work. So far, 15 employees have already been trained and hired on full-time at the Yonso Project‘s bamboos bike workshop. Proceeds from the workshop go towards financing all other projects such as microlending.
Fair Working Conditions
For us, it is essential that the local working conditions are decent. This is why we‘ve intentionally chosen to collaborate with a social project that shares the same beliefs.
Education is Key
We are convinced that education is the key to a happy future which is why we have decided to finance one educational scholarship for each bike sold. As a customer, you have the option to extend the scholarship after one year or to continue sponsoring the same child.
Production - From Bamboo to a Bicycle.
Every frame is build in 80 to 90 hours lovely handicraft work. You have to be quite accurate.
And that is all "Made in Ghana". Check out all the different steps of the production process.
