“In the garden, birds sing, bees hum and the flowers and butterflies bewitch me.

Every bug and beetle, petal and leaf grants peace to me in the present moment.

As I tread upon emerald blades that gently sway below crystal skies,

the garden unveils to me the philosophy of life.”  

― Amelia Dashwood

Qhubeka

Qhubeka

[Qhubeka]

 

Qhubeka is an Nguni (Zulu, Xhosa) word that means “to carry on”, “to progress” or “to move forward”. Qhubeka helps people move forward 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.  Qhubeka’s mission is to uplift African communities by improving access to essential services through bicycles. A quality bicycle provides access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. “
