Qhubeka is committed to working
towards the UN Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs).
Our work contributes towards
the following goals:
1 NO POVERTY
Bicycles can help to address persistent poverty by helping people to get where they need to go, whether it’s a place of education or a job
interview, as well as enabling people to start and run bicycle-based micro-enterprises.
3 GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Riding a bicycle can help improve health and fitness. Qhubeka also supports healthcare and sports bicycle programmes, contributing towards better health and well-being in the communities in which we work.
4 QUALITY EDUCATION
One of the major hurdles to accessing education in South Africa is lack of personal transport. Bicycles help people to get to and from schools, colleges, libraries and study groups.
5 GENDER EQUALITY
Qhubeka works to overcome stigmas around girls and women riding bicycles in South Africa. By sensitising communities and providing bicycles and opportunities to girls and women, we work towards greater gender equality.
13 CLIMATE ACTION
Bicycles are an environmentally-friendly mode of transport. Qhubeka’s various eco programmes also encourage education about and action against climate change.
17 PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS
Qhubeka is built on partnerships. By collaborating with individuals, organisations and communities across the civil, private and public
sectors, we can change more lives with bicycles together.
