    The cyclists of Burundi have a dangerous job. First of all, they’re completely mad and second they can compete with any adrenaline junkie earning a boatload for their antics. These guys barely scrape by yet they persevere and defy fate with their racing ways while transporting lots of bananas and other unwieldy stuff you’d normally use a truck for. Nope. These guys do it all on bikes. And these cyclists are a vital factor for Burundi’s economy. Bicycles are the main means of transportation in one of the smallest countries in Africa. Bananas, the staple food in Burundi, are transported from the markets to a banana beer brewing factory.

      Why did you pay those people to fall off their bikes for the camera? It would have been enough to tell us it happens, we don't need demonstrations, what's wrong with you?

    OH YEA, RITE !!! That is so screwed up, When these fishermen have to stop catching the small amount they need to help them survive, while the multi-million dollar floating fish processing plants can devastate the fish population with a few passes from their huge nets!!!! Whatever the case may be, I hope the Gorton's fishermen are taking their mega nets out of the ocean long enough to allow for natural repopulation of many species of fish that they rob and pillage unjustly every day in the name of MONEY.

    This where the world bank 🏦 should step in . Build basic schools ! How can a 21 year old never have been to school before ? That's heartbreaking. Secondly, the banana runners should be given economic grants by way of engine tricycles like they have in India. That would help them a lot.. The brewer should also get a small grant to build a modern , hygienic refinery/brewer, which would make a more standardized product, and also offer shelf life and modern bottling , ultimately creating more jobs for the locals. Everything I have mentioned would not cost more than $50,000 to implement .

    The developed world could help by supplying Burundi with some well-made freight bikes. These inexpensive bikes, probably made in India, are not ideal. For the cost of one anti-tank missile such as those we recently supplied to the Taliban the US could donate a freight bike for every one of these cyclists. A much better way to spend our money.
