Our Impact

We have been solving the problem of getting health care to communities in Africa for three decades, working to strengthen countries’ healthcare systems by providing reliable and cost effective transport for health workers.

The programmes we support, run by Riders for Health (Riders), work with Ministries of Health to  significantly reduce disease growth, curb sudden outbreaks of disease, reduce maternal and infant mortality and other specific countrywide and global health goals.

Community health worker serving their community, Riders For Health, The Gambia.

We provide funds for vehicles, training, equipment and tools and work with Riders to ensure  the programmes are efficient and sustainable; funding staff training, digitisation of paper-based systems and research & development.

We support programmes in seven African countries and believe that in the future every country in Africa could and should have such a system.

Health improvements in The Gambia

Since Riders began operating in The Gambia maternal mortality rates have dropped by a third and live birth rates have doubled, in no small part, due to Riders. Riders enable health professionals to be present at over 60% of births across the country. That’s up from less than 46% prior to Riders’ involvement.
