I have voluteered to raise $5,000 to go towards the construction of a suspension bridge in Rulindo District Rwanda Africa. The nonprofit organization by the name of Bridges to Prosperity will be leading the way in the design and construction, but they need help in fundraising the necessary money. 100% of the money donated will go towards this specific bridge, and nothing will be used for general overhead of the organization. The approximate 115 ft permanent bridge will serve about 400 people per day and provide vital access for farmers to the marketplace and for roughly 1,500 children to a secondary school.
I am asking for my friends and family to dig into their wallets and help me reach my goal of raising this money to help! See link below for more pictures and a better description of the project.
FYI - Bridges to Prosperity is a non-profit organization that facilitates the design, construction, and education related to pedestrian bridges in underdeveloped countries. They work with many different entities including contractors, designers, and other organizations such as Rotary.
