Who we are

Transaid transforms lives through safe, available, and sustainable transport

Founded by Save the Children, The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), and its Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, the international development organisation shares 25 years’ worth of expertise in 23 countries with partners and governments – empowering people to build the skills they need to transform their own lives.

Our priority is the people on the ground

Every driver should be able to leave for a day’s work without the fear they may not come home because of a lack of training, or dangerous vehicles and roads. Every family should be able to access vital healthcare; nobody should be left behind. Every person should have the opportunity to build the skills they need to transform their future.

Our power comes from strong partnerships

We are a unique, passionate organisation that works with partners and governments to solve transport challenges in economically developing countries. We couldn’t make a tangible, sustainable difference without our partnerships internationally and our corporate supporters in the UK – for which we are a logical link to transform the wider industry.

Sharing expertise is our passion

We are trusted by international organisations, governments, and communities, to share our knowledge, and to bring together expertise from other organisations. We have a unique technical reputation in the transport and development niche. We believe that knowledge should be open and accessible and have removed the Intellectual Property from our information to make sure it can be shared for the widest impact.
