A total of 10 volunteers have been selected from Raymond Brown Construction Ltd and Tony Gee and Partners Ltd to construct a pedestrian footbridge for Bridges to Prosperity in Rwanda, Africa in late July 2017.

We are all highly motivated professionals with considerable experience in the design and construction of civil engineering projects throughout the UK and beyond. We are delighted to be offered an opportunity to implement our knowledge and skills to contribute and make a difference to the people of the chosen community where the bridge build will take place.

The main event will involve the team constructing a 60m span (approximate) suspension footbridge spanning the Bakokwe River in the Muhanga District. The bridge will make it possible for more than 8500 residents of the Kiyumba community to safely reach essential services - including food stalls, a hospital and two schools - all year round, especially during the rainy season when the river floods and becomes impassable.
The local team are currently working hard to lay the concrete foundations prior to us flying out. Follow our Flickr link to see their progress!
