Across the world social entrepreneurs are taking on some of the world’s biggest and most challenging problems. By recognising and building the talents and abilities of the people living in developing countries, and applying their own innovations and experience, social entrepreneurs are able to create enduring social benefits. Riders is one of these organisations.
By combining the appropriate technology with new systems for looking after it, Riders have created a solution to the problem of a lack of transportation which is sustainable, replicable and scalable. By providing training programmes for technicians, mechanics and fleet managers, Riders is building capacity in Africa and is developing a lasting infrastructure for the future.
How our business model works
Riders’ programmes are designed to become financially self-sustaining in the long-term. Our model is flexible, and means that Riders’ programmes are replicable and can work just as effectively for a small fleet of two or three motorcycles as it does for a government ministry’s fleet of hundreds of two and four wheeled vehicles.
Riders for Health works with other social entrepreneurs allowing communities to work together and transfer their skills.
