Dimension Data for Qhubeka

Education means nothing if our children can’t make the trip to school. That’s why we partnered with Qhubeka, an organisation that helps donate bicycles to children in need, so they can make the often difficult trip to school an easier one.

Qhubeka has managed to donate thousands of bicycles to South African children, empowering them to continue believing that they can do anything through education.

Meet Marike - Student and Qhubeka bicycle recipient

My name is Marike Benn. I’m 14 years old and I live in Cloetesville.

I want to be a doctor when I grow up because there’s nothing worse than seeing sick and dying people, especially when they aren’t able to take care of themselves. I want to go into medicine so I can help develop and build my community. I don’t know of anyone from my community who has become a doctor, so I want to be the first. I’ve always wanted to help people.

It will be tough to become a doctor. But through hard work, with the help of my parents, and good marks, I’m hoping to get a bursary. I enjoy school even though I never liked walking to and from my school. It’s not easy walking alone as a girl. Sometimes you feel intimidated, but I guess it’s something I had to do. That was until I got my Qhubeka bicycle. Now I ride it to school every single day.

The bicycle has made a big difference in all parts of my life, and it opened up my eyes to the benefits of being fit and healthy. Even one day when I’m a doctor, I’ll still ride my Qhubeka bicycle!
