Qhubeka BEEP Orange Farm Partner Use S4
Qhubeka is based in South Africa and aims to help “people move forward and progress by giving bicycles in return for work done to improve communities, the environment or academic results.” The bikes are built with the vagaries of the continent’s challenging terrain in mind. Details include puncture-resistant tyres, durable, weather-proof coaster brakes, and parts compatible with locally available spares. Partnering with like-minded organisations, the programme has delivered more than 51,000 bikes since 2005 through a number of themed projects. For example, alongside the Wildslands Conservation Trust, Qhubeka Eco provides bicycles in return for work undertaken to improve communities and their environments, including planting trees, recycling waste and farming food. In addition, Qhubeka Education joins forces with World Vision to supply bicycles to school children.
