THE STORY:

Bridges to Prosperity envisions a world where poverty caused by rural isolation no longer exists.  In the remote farmlands of the developing world, walking is the primary mode of transportation. The World Bank estimates that nearly a billion people lack access to a road that is passable year-round, due to rainy seasons that are both critical to agriculture and dangerous for the very people that rely on those seasonal rains. When rivers swell, the walk to school, the doctor, work, or the market can become life threatening without a bridge to cross.

Bridges to Prosperity has developed a simple, scalable model to deliver safe pedestrian footbridges to even the most isolated communities, addressing key barriers to transportation access. By standardizing bridge design, training in-country engineers and masons, and incentivizing government support, B2P has created a replicable, sustainable solution to improve education, health, and economic outcomes for the developing world.

Foothills Bridge Co is again pleased to support the Bridges & Birdies golf event along with other corporate and community leaders to raise $45,000 for the mission of Bridge to Prosperity.  Foothills Bridge Co is attempting to raise $5,000 through donations from it's employees and a matching corporate contributions.
