Bezalila Cooperative

 Bezalila is a Madagascan cooperative which provides Fair Trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans in crafts such as weaving, woodwork, bone carving, and modeling recycled tin cans (called Kapoaka) into perfect cars, bicycles and trucks. With the profits generated by the workshops, the Kapoaka artisans have built their houses, bought rice fields and established a pig-breeding farm. Zenzele distributes their miniature cars which are so perfectly made that you can even see the model of the car in it’s tiny shape.
