You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

Riders for Health in KenyaThe New York Times have highlighted Riders for Health as one of seven organisations who are a great example of ‘giving where it works’. We think it is very important that people who support our work can be confident that their donation will have a real impact. That is why we are very proud that our work has been recognised by the New York Times.
The new column is part of the newspaper’s Fixes series, which looks at practical solutions to major social problems. The article, which was published on 29 November, said of the seven highlighted organisations: ‘Like all the ideas we’ve highlighted in Fixes, they are proven to work. All of them spend a relatively small amount now to create huge savings down the road. But these are also programs where a little bit of money can make a huge difference.’

Support Riders for Health this ChristmasThis Christmas please support Riders for Health and help us get on the road to better health care in Zambia. Thanks to a generous grant we can buy a fleet of 60 motorcycles for the Southern Province of Zambia. With this, Riders for Health could make an immediate impact on the health of 500,000 people– but we need your help.
Zambia is incredibly beautiful, yet also desperately poor. There are urgent health needs – people are dying from easily preventable and treatable diseases.
It costs just £6.50 to deliver one day of health care in Southern Zambia, can you give a gift this Christmas? By sending a gift today, you can help kick start this life-saving new programme in the New Year.
Riders for Health’s programme in Southern Zambia will help health workers like Kenneth Daka. Kenneth spends the majority of his time in the remote communities where preventative health care is so vital. To find out more about a typical day on the road, click here to read his diary.


Experience AfricaWe all like to do things for charity. But suppose we did something that called for getting up in the morning and facing the realities of rural Africa – out there where people really do live, in spite of everything.
The Riders for Health Experience Africa ride in Zambia took place in late November and 18 participants joined GP legend Randy Mamola and current MotoGP star Alvaro Bautista, on the adventure of a lifetime.
The adventures started in Lusaka and made their very interesting way along sand and dirt roads. Through villages and farms and towns. They stopped to talk, stopped to listen and stopped to understand what so many visitors to Africa miss: the vitality, the humour and the pretty-well unfailing good nature of the hospitable people in that hard but thrilling landscape.

Riders for Health’s work was recognised this month when it came third in the International Health Promotion Awards, which took place on the 5th-6th December in Rome.
Impact update: The GambiaAn expert panel of judges, comprising of health care professionals from around the world, chose the twelve finalists that most demonstrated innovation and success in improving individual’s lives in the community and workplace. Representatives from each organisation then had to present their programme in Rome to the judging panel. Riders for Health’s presentation was given by our monitoring and evaluation manager, Kat Harrison.
Kat said: ‘We are very proud to take part in this competition. All of the finalists were incredible and I was really pleased that we were specifically recognised by the judges. I think that this really shows what an amazing job all of our teams in Africa are doing and how much it is helping people in rural communities receive the health care they need. I collected this award on behalf of our teams across Africa and in the UK and USA. I would also like to thank all of our supporters. Without them, the impact we are having would not be possible.’
