Schoolchildren earn Qhubeka Bicycles by committing to improve their school attendance. Bicycles make it easier and faster to get to school.
“The children who received bicycles today are part of our wider SHIFT programme in Bergville. SHIFT programmes aim to help shift an entire community forward using bicycles. Rather than diluting the impact of bicycle distribution by spreading the bicycles out over numerous towns, we distribute up to 5 000 bicycles into a single geographic region, which builds a new bicycle culture.”
Tsatsi Phaweni, Qhubeka Executive Director
