In November 2018 Riders for Health held its first ever sustainability summit. Led by Kayodi Ajayi, Riders for Health CEO, teams from across four country programmes spent a week sharing knowledge and learnings about the components of Riders’ unique system. They discussed how the programme was working on the ground in their regions and came to agreements on the best ways to work going forward.
The aim was to create a manual that could be used by new programmes as Riders replicates their success, with hopes to bring their services to more countries across the continent. The document will be a tool to help ensure all teams were in agreement on the processes and following the same rigorous practices.
Held in Banjul, The Gambia, attendees were able to enjoy the local food and beautiful environment of the capital with it’s wonderful beaches and spend time with international colleagues.
Attended by senior staff including those who deal with procurement of vehicles and parts, head motorcycle and vehicle technicians and finance as well as one of the founders of Riders for Health, Barry Coleman and the country programme directors from Gambia, Lesotho, Malawi and Nigeria.
