Riders for Health

Riders for Health's mission is to strengthen health systems by addressing one of the most neglected, yet vital, aspects of development for the health of Africa - transportation and logisitics. We achieve this by managing vehicles on a reliable, predictable and cost effective basis, to support the work of our partners who reach rural communities with health care and and other vital services.

Meet the team - Alfred Gonga

Riders for Health’s teams in Africa are made up entirely of nationals of the countries in which we work. In Zimbabwe, GlobalGiving donors are helping to support the training of community nurses in vital motorcycle-riding and maintenance skills. Here, we find out more about the man responsible for getting the health workers onto two wheels – Alfred Gonga, principal of the Riders’ Academy of Vehicle Management.

Meet the team - Ali Ceesay

Riders for Health’s teams in Africa are made up entirely of nationals of the countries in which we work. In the Gambia, where GlobalGiving donors are helping to support the Uhuru programme, a key member of the team is deputy programme director, Ali Ceesay. Born into a very poor family in Bansang, in the east of the country, Ali was determined to do whatever he could both to overcome his own and his family's poverty and to make a contribution to the development of the country. Here, he talks about Riders for Health and the Uhuru, and why access to reliable transportation is so vital to the people of rural Gambia.
