What does Qhubeka mean?

Qhubeka is an Nguni word that means “to carry on”, “to progress”, “to move forward”.

About Qhubeka

Qhubeka helps people move forward and progress by giving bicycles in return for work done to improve communities, the environment or academic results. Having a bicycle changes lives by increasing the distance people can travel, what they can carry, where they can go and how fast they can get there.

We are World Bicycle Relief’s programme in South Africa. World Bicycle Relief is a non-profit organisation transforming individuals and communities through The Power of Bicycles.

We accomplish this mission by designing, sourcing and manufacturing bicycles created to withstand rough terrain and load requirements while meeting the needs of students, healthcare workers, farmers and entrepreneurs.

We strengthen local economies and promote long-term sustainability by assembling bicycles locally, training mechanics, improving the spare parts supply chain, and providing high-quality, affordable bicycles to people in need of transportation.

Profits from the sale of Qhubeka Bracelets go to funding our programmes in South Africa. The bracelets are put together by women as part of a rural development project in South Africa. You can wear this bracelet with pride knowing that not only are you donating towards mobilising people with bicycles, but you are also helping to break the cycle of poverty for rural South African women by helping to create employment opportunities.
