“Barrku”

We were in Ghana’s Upper West Region for 3 weeks in June, where we hosted 15 One Day Workshops and delivered 300 bicycles to participants from Piina and another 10 of its surrounding outlying villages. This is the third time we’ve been in Piina, bringing our total bike count in the region close to 600.

Out of the 300 participants in June, more than half were women, and at the close of programs one group surprised the team by dancing – to say thanks, or “barrku”.

Watch out for Madame Esther Konsi from Koro, who is dressed in green and chooses a track-pump for a dance partner…

We’ve also uploaded some photos from the workshops to our flickr page here.
