Area of work:
In the remote parts of countries like Rwanda, Peru and Nicaragua, walking is the primary form of transportation and many people have to walk much further than they need to get to river crossing points because there aren’t the bridges.
Bridges to Prosperity (B2P) not only builds bridges but also teaches communities how to build and maintain these connections to healthcare, education and employment. Its projects span the globe, bringing people together through construction training. In total, the organisation has completed 203 bridges in 20 countries and 65,000 return trips are made every day.
