Have you ever wished you could attend a Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycle handover? This year in partnership with World Vision we have been handing over 250 bicycles to learners through our Bicycle Education Empowerment Programme (BEEP) every week during school terms.
Orange Farm is widely regarded as one of South Africa’s largest informal settlements and houses at least 10% of Johannesburg’s residents. There are over 1 million residents, of which 70% are estimated to live on less than R10.00 or $1 a day. Most households earn less than R5 000 ($500) a month yet spend R500 – R1 000 ($50 – $100) on transport each month.
Share this handover photoblog, and our work, with your friends and family.
