Qhubeka bikes for loveLife

The Witness - Wheels - - BIKING - — WR.

JO­HAN­NES­BURG — Qhubeka and loveLife have signed an MoU for a new pro­gramme that will see loveLife youth vol­un­teers rid­ing to their venues on Qhubeka Buf­falo bi­cy­cles.

The pro­gramme, which will see the first bi­cy­cles dis­trib­uted in July 2016, is aimed at help­ing the loveLife vol­un­teers, known as groundBREAKERs and mp­intshis, to im­ple­ment com­mu­nity pro­grammes.

Qhubeka ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Sarah Phaweni ex­plains that a bi­cy­cle cuts down travel time to en­able loveLi­ife vol­un­teers to spend more time to im­ple­ment loveLife’s healthy sex­u­al­ity, pos­i­tive life­style and skills devel­op­ment pro­grammes.

The groundBREAKER mo­bil­ity project re­quires of the vol­un­teers to sign a con­tract to care for the bi­cy­cle and upon grad­u­at­ing from their re­spec­tive pro­grammes to re­turn the bi­cy­cle for use by the next vol­un­teer. More on www.qhubeka.org.
