Skoll Awardee


Co-founder and CEO of Riders for Health, Andrea and husband Barry, are life-long motorcyclists. They saw that well-maintained motorcycles in Africa meant health care delivered, money saved and people trained in appropriate skills. Andrea's motorcycle racing life and her work in promotion and sports management provided her with a practical outlook and skills that have helped guide the financial and advocacy development of Riders. ‘Introducing innovations for vehicle management in Africa to deliver health care requires persistence and an impatience with the status quo. I have both in abundance' she says.
The quality and innovation Riders brings has been recognised by the leading voices in the development community. Riders has received many awards including the renowned Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship.
