A young Ghanaian woman named Winifred Selby is doing great things for the environment. She might be young, but her brain and skills are far ahead of their time as she proves that age is just a number.
She has taken the initiative of making bikes with bamboo and reportedly employed around 30 women within the local community, thereby creating employment opportunities for them.
The selfless young woman is said to have invested some of the proceeds her company made into the education of young underprivileged girls.
The vision behind her company was to cut down on carbon emissions which are damaging our planet, so instead of the conventional metal or wood, she used bamboo in manufacturing the bikes.
