ABOUT QHUBEKA

Qhubeka is a global charity that moves people forward with bicycles in Africa. People earn bicycles through our programmes, improving their access to schools, clinics and jobs.

Qhubeka is an Nguni word that means “to progress”, “to move forward”.

WHY BICYCLES

Bicycles help people to change their lives. They are an accessible, reliable, affordable form of personal transport.

In the face of extreme and persistent poverty, bicycles can change lives by helping to address socioeconomic challenges at the most basic level – helping people to get where they need to go.

A bicycle is a tool that helps people to travel faster and further, to generate income and to carry more.

A bicycle saves time and money.

THE PROBLEM - ACCESS TO TRANSPORT

Millions of people across Africa have limited access to transport. They have to walk long distances to where they want to be. 

Walking long distances requires significant time and energy. Time and energy that could be spent studying, playing or doing chores.

12 million children walk to school every day in South Africa.

THE PROBLEM - POVERTY

In South Africa, 59% of poor households’ budgets is being spent on TRANSPORT and electricity.

6 million children in South Africa live below the poverty line.

THE EFFECTS OF POVERTY AND LIMITED ACCESS TO TRANSPORT ON SOUTH AFRICAN SCHOOLCHILDREN

Between Grade 1 and Grade 12, the class of 2019 lost 710 000 schoolchildren who dropped out of the school system. Of the 1 120 000 children that started Grade 1 in 2008 only 410 000 finished Grade 12 in 2019.
