Schoolchildren earn Qhubeka Bicycles by committing to improve their school attendance. Bicycles make it easier and faster to get to school.
“Having spent four months on a bicycle, I know full well what an amazing means of transport it can be. I wouldn’t have gone to many of the places that I did in a car, or an airplane. I hope this doesn’t sound too cliché, but having a bike has changed my life. I feel humbled, and lucky to have been able to do the Tour d’Afrique. If the money I have raised can give someone else even a fraction of the enjoyment I have got out of my own ride, I cannot ask for more.”
Stephanie Barker, a student who rode from Cairo to Cape Town and raised more than R100 000 for Qhubeka
“The City has committed to an ongoing bicycle programme in the region, which has included constructing bicycle lanes and funding bicycles to help schoolchildren and adults with personal transport. With a bicycle, access to schools, clinics and jobs improves.”
Qhubeka Executive Director, Tsatsi Phaweni
