The Green Hub franchise concept is designed to develop self-sustainable Cycling out of Poverty country offices and programmes in Africa. In a time frame of 7 years CooP-Africa supports and invests capital in a local foundation, our bicycle interventions and social bicycle enterprises to develop an economically viable and self-reliant franchise. The concept is founded on ideology that the local foundation and the social bicycle enterprises support each other financially. Through the generated income of the social entreprises and local fundraising can sustain (or increase) the primary bicycle interventions: Bike4Work, Bike4Care and Bike4School.
The Green Hub concept is innovative and in its basic set up consists of African Bicycle Design (a bicycle factory), Bikeventures (a bicycle tourism enterprise), Green Distribution (a distribution channel of life-improving and life-saving products) and Pedi-Teksi (a courier and transport service).
