The Story

We need your support to fund the construction of a vital 56m footbridge in Rebero, Rwanda in partnership with Bridges to Prosperity, Mott MacDonald and Balfour Beatty. Building on Bridges to Prosperity’s amazing work throughout the world, the construction of the Rebero Trail Bridge will provide a safe crossing of the Kazirankomo River. During rainy season the local community which rely on crossing the river to reach an array of critical resources become very dangerous and often deadly. During rainy season, most of the local community don’t attempt the dangerous crossing. With no safe crossing, children cannot attend school, healthcare cannot be access and a local market is unreachable. We want to help change this! With your amazing support, in June 2024, a team which consists of fantastic local residents, Bridges to Prosperity and volunteers from Mott MacDonald and Balfour Beatty will work around the clock to construct the 56m suspended Rebero Trail footbridge. The Impact of Your Support: Your support will have a direct impact on the 4000+ local resident who will use the Rebero Trail Bridge every day! You will help local children get to school and access life changing education. You will help the local community access the Health Care Centre! Your will help the local community access the nearby market providing a connection to essential resources and a place to sell locally grown produce. The Rebero Footbridge will provide a huge social, health, education and economic benefit to the local community!
