Why “Qhubeka” and why bicycles?
Qhubeka is an Nguni word that means “to progress”, “to move forward”. Bicycles help people move forward. With a bicycle, a person can travel faster and further, generate income, and carry more.
People earn bicycles through Qhubeka’s different programmes.
Their programmes are based throughout South Africa, predominantly in Qhubeka SHIFT regions, and are implemented in communities by Qhubeka’s partners.
A SHIFT is a Qhubeka bicycle project that aims to distribute 5 000 bicycles per year into a specific geographic area for five years, with the aim of helping to SHIFT the entire community forward.
Qhubeka offers three main types of programmes – learn-to-earn programmes for school children, work-to-earn programmes for adults and disaster relief programmes.
