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 goal is to transform lives through safe, available and sustainable transport

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. Nothing should prevent communities from accessing vital healthcare. 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 sub-Saharan Africa. We couldn’t make a tangible, sustainable difference without our partnerships internationally and our corporate supporters in the UK, who are committed to improving global road safety and strengthening health supply chains.

Sharing knowledge is our passion

We have a unique technical reputation in transport and development. We are trusted by development partners, governments, and communities, to share our knowledge, and to bring together expertise from other organisations. Our commitment to knowledge sharing means we have removed the Intellectual Property from our technical resources to make sure they can be shared for the widest impact.

Our Knowledge Centre is part of our dedication to keeping knowledge open and accessible for all. It is an online hub of training manuals, assessment tools, technical case studies, research papers and other resources for those working within our core areas of road safety and access to health.
