BENEFITING: Bridges to Prosperity, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Bridges to Prosperity, Inc.
I got hooked on Bridges in 2006, while deep in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes. Since, bridges have been a huge part of my passion, life and career because I believe access should be a human right. Bridges (cable-supported are my favorite) are an essential element of a tertiary transportation network. Girls are more likely to go to school, farmers increase their income and expecting mothers can reach health facilities.
For the over 1 billion people who live in the 'walking world', the lack of rural roads and pedestrian bridges are a grave challenge as villagers are isolated from life-changing services.
Since 2001, Bridges to Prosperity has built over 150 bridges in 16 countries, connecting 750,000 people to schools, doctors and jobs. Help us reach the next half a million people - during the Holiday Challenge, your donations will be matched - DOUBLED - by the Bridges to Prosperity Board of Directors!
