Rebuilding the bridge at Chipwepwete

Can you imagine children being sent home from school every time it rains and how disruptive that is to their education? 
Please help us to fund the building of a bridge over the river near Chipwepwete to enable children to attend school more regularly.
Over two thirds of the children who attend Chipwepwete Primary school have to cross a river to get to school.  When the water level is low the children wade over the river or use stepping stones.  However when it rains the water level rises very quickly and the river becomes impassable.   
If it rains, children don't attend school or if they are at school when it starts to rain, they go home.  For the 500 children who live the other side of the river, learning is missed many days of the year. 
Can you help us to fund the building of a new bridge at Chipwepwete so that children can attend school more regularly.  Education improves the ability of people to get jobs which will enable them to escape the poverty trap which so blights this beautiful country.
