We call our fundraising events “ForQhubeka” because you really can do anything you like for Qhubeka.

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.

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

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

Qhubeka SHIFT

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.

We measure the success of our programmes by their sustained impact over a decade. If we return to an area after 10 years, our hope is that we will find fresh Qhubeka bicycle tracks on the ground.

Our programmes

People earn bicycles through Qhubeka’s different programmes.

Our programmes are based throughout South Africa, predominantly in our SHIFT regions, and are implemented in communities by Qhubeka’s partners.
