BHL helps us to keep moving

Ensuring that vehicles function is always challenging, especially when your vehicle is eight years old and has had to travel over some of the toughest terrain in Nigeria carrying everything from school children to  cement. Realising that the Initiative was in danger of being crippled by expensive repair bills, BHL Investment and Technology Ltd took the Initiative’s Toyota  Hilux into their own  workshop repair bays (normally reserved for buses) in order to give it the overhaul of its life by changing much of the vehicle’s worn out components for new parts. This complements the work done last year by Mandilas primarily on the Initiative’s 14 year old Hilux, which is still working well.


BHL are currently planning to  open  a  Marcopolo bus assembly plant  in Ilara, close to Epe (Lagos State), which looks like it will provide Lagos’ only real mass transit scheme. They also already have a close relationship with Pro-Natura International (one of the NGOs involved in the Forest Elephant Initiative) as the two organisations have been working together for the last four years to implement grass-roots level Community Development within Ilara.


We are particularly grateful to Mike Prime, Brian Watson and Naomi & Guus Hak for their assistance.
