Qhubeka Charity is a Non-Profit Company registered in SA and is a community initiative which means ‘to progress’/’to move forward’ by using bicycles to connect people to schools, clinics and jobs.
Communities with limited transport have restrictions, but bicycles are tools of change. They help people to get where they need to go and do things that are difficult without transportation.
Rola Motor Group has made a decision to entering into a proud partnership with Qhubeka and in doing so, supporting our local communities and our staff members through this CSI initiative by means of the following programmes.
Bicycles are an effective way to address the needs of school children in South Africa.
Schoolchildren earn Qhubeka Bicycles by committing to improve their school attendance, participation in sport and improved grades. Bicycles make it easier and faster to get to school.
12 million of the country’s 16 million school-going children walk to and from school
The Learn-to-Earn Programme will be supported by Rola by donating over the course of 2019 a total of 240 bicycles to children across three geographical areas and communities within which we operate.
We promise to keep you posted.
The Rola Qhubeka project was officially launched on 21 February 2019 with the first handover of 50 bicycles to the Greenberg Secondary School in Grabouw. Qhubeka matched this with a further 50 bicycles, meaning 100 schoolchildren are now able to get to and from school more quickly and easily.
A second delivery of 30 bicycles, totalling 60 with Qhubeka’s support, is scheduled to take place during the Absa Cape Epic event, in conjunction with Grabouw Beautiful in March 2019.
The aim of the partnership is to provide bicycles to school communities, over a three-year period in order to improve people’s mobility. The plan is to distribute 700 bicycles into Qhubeka’s learn-to-earn programmes over the next three years. Visit https://qhubeka.org for more information.
Heaven-on-Earth Project (HOEP)
Eight years ago the Heaven-on-Earth Project was started as a calling from our
Almighty God to develop the people and specifically the children of South Africa.
The Heaven-on-Earth Project focuses on School Readiness for grade R and pre-grade
We developed and tested our own Remedial Intervention Programme, training
material and workbooks for pre-grade R and grade R learners.
We currently support 1500 young learners in 25 schools and crèches in the
Helderberg Basin, Grabouw, Kylemore, Franschhoek, Khayelitsha and Delft areas
with our Remedial Curriculum and learning material.
Through our Remedial Intervention Programme the Heaven-on-Earth Project
endeavours to help bridging backlogs before learners enter the formal school
The intended outcome is to ensure that 90 percent of learners will be school ready in
the future compared to the current approximately 20 to 50 percent in some South
ROLA Group’s Involvement
The ROLA group partnered the Heaven-on-Earth Project since 2013. As one of
Heaven-on-Earth’s key sponsors, it plays an enormous role in supporting the
Remedial Intervention Programme brought to more than a thousand pre-school
learners annually. ROLA also spreads love and care through events such as Christmas
parties and gifts to the young learners of the HOEP centre in Sir Lowry’s Pass and
lends a helping hand whenever needed.
Thank you to the wonderful, caring group of people at the ROLA group. As Heaven-
on-Earthteam we are blessed to have sponsors and friends like you. Thank you for
making it possible to bring back hope to the communities in the Western Cape.
