Transporting Milk on a Bicycle in Rwanda
Leon jumps on a bicycle with a full canister of raw milk in tow.
He’s headed to a local cooperative’s milk collection center four miles away. Not long ago, families in his community in Rwanda walked this journey, balancing the milk container on their heads.
Now, Leon is one of many riders employed by the cooperative to help pick up the milk from the surrounding area. This not only helps out families that didn’t have a way to efficiently transport their milk to markets, but also provides sustainable employment for young people like Leon.
