Billions of dollars are spent on healthcare and vaccines. Nevertheless, one quarter of children born every year - 34 million infants – is still unprotected. Help cannot reach these children and their mothers cannot access services – because there is no transportation infrastructure. Training one public health nurse to ride quickly and safely to her allocated communities means that up to 20,000 people, isolated by distance, hostile terrain and poverty, will receive healthcare and support.


Train one phn at Riders’ International Academy of Vehicle Management in Zimbabwe in safe riding and motorcycle maintenance on a motorcycle donated by Honda. To ensure vehicle zero-breakdown performance, Riders will provide technical support.

Long-Term Impact

Reliable, sustainable transportation and one phn trained in the skills necessary to reach up to 20,000 people - people who will benefit from appropriate 21st century technology and look forward to a positive future, underwritten by good health.
