We are proud and humbled to have been able to help make a difference to the lives of several “treepreneurs” from Klapmuts near Paarl. PPA sponsored 25 Qhubeka bicycles of which 12 were recently donated to school children and residents from Klapmuts.
In order to qualify to receive a bicycle, each had to grow at least 200 indigenous trees from seed to a minimum of 30cm. The trees will now be planted in the Klapmuts community.
Ten of the Qhubeka bicycles were distributed to students from Klapmuts Primary School who participate in the Treepreneurs programme, while the other two bicycles were earned by adults in the Treepreneurs programme. The programme has distributed over 700 bikes through Treepreneurs in the Stellenbosch Municipality during the past four years.
