About us

Riders grew out of a humanitarian impulse from within the worldwide motorcycle community – as our name suggests!

The first Riders system was in place in Lesotho in 1991 by then mainly following the charity model, followed by social entrepreneur approach to national scale operations in Zimbabwe (1993, where systems were developed which are integral in replications which followed thereafter) and Nigeria (1999). The Gambia (2002), Kenya (first 2003 and then 2007), return to Lesotho 2008, Malawi (2011) and, most recently, Liberia (2015) were added in turn.

Our Mission is “to make the last mile the most important mile in health care delivery creating showing and sharing the solutions for achieving truly equitable health care.”

Our vision is “a world in which health care reaches everyone, everywhere.”
