The 'infoladies' of Bangladesh

One organisation brings a fresh approach to social change in rural Bangladesh.

    Bangladesh is home to more than 20,000 non-governmental organisations. Most of them focus on fighting poverty through microfinance.

    But one new organisation has a fresh approach to social change: A group of women on bikes - "infoladies" - are cycling information to villagers' doorsteps.

    Al Jazeera's Nicholas Haque reports.
