Qhubeka is an NGO that provides bicycles to people in disadvantaged communities to help them get to work or school and in turn improve their communities, the environment or academic results.
Programme director at Qhubeka, Ian Mills, says they have now ventured into developing small businesses by partnering with two ladies in Nederburg from Bicycle and Beyond to build and assemble bicycles.
These ladies have now employed four other ladies from nearby communities who are learning the skill of assembling bikes.
The bicycles help children to get to school and back but beyond that, to access sports and for adults to create their own jobs in terms of medication delivery and selling cold drinks.— Ian Mills, Programme manager for Qhubeka
