Helping women to give birth safely in remote areas, enabling disadvantaged women to earn a living, and improving the lives of working animals through harnessing education


What we do

SaddleAid is a UK registered charity that designs and makes special saddles to carry women in labour, the sick, elderly or disabled to health centres in remote areas. We train disadvantaged women to make the saddles locally and sustainably, enabling income. We also supply educational materials for the harnessing of working animals in low resource settings.
