About

This August, a team of 10 volunteers from Knights Brown and Tony Gee and Partners Ltd are travelling to Eastern Uganda to build a 90-metre pedestrian footbridge across the river Passa.

The Namakhokolo Suspended Bridge will provide safe, year-round access for 4000 local people, saving lives and helping to lift nearby communities out of poverty. 

The team members are:
Lee Devaney, Thomas Keatley, Jack Bishop, Nick Humphries, John Dunsdon, Oliver Hacke, Nicola Kingsley, Zoe Barnett, Ailish Smith, Rebecca Woodhouse

Event details

Namakhokolo Suspended Footbridge

The construction of this 90-metre suspended footbridge in the Bududa municipality of Eastern Uganda is needed to enable residents to get to and from essential healthcare, local markets and education centres during the rainy season when water levels are dangerously high.

When the river floods, access to critical resources is cut off. Residents are unable to access vital services such as food and healthcare, while children are unable to attend school.  

In the past three years, twelve people have died while crossing the river and many more have been injured. 

The bridge will drastically reduce the casualty rate of those attempting to cross the river during the rainy season. The new Namakhokolo footbridge will serve two communities (Namakhokolo and Lubolo) totalling approximately 4,000 residents.
