Movement in Malawi


Sakaramenta is a Malawi-based social business designing and building bicycles, push-carts and playground equipment with and for the Malawi people. The group started with a simple design of a bicycle-driven cart – the Care Cart transports the sick and pregnant to the hospital, where they would otherwise have to walk. Sakaramenta’s most recent design is for a hospital as well – using a repurposed ambulance as a central component to a playground for children. Kids in wheelchairs can roll right in and hang out, and others can climb atop its rails, or slide down a built-in pole or slide, making the hospital experience a little more joyful.
