It takes a community...

COMMUNITY INITIATIVE
The community initiates their bridge project by asking for assistance.

 

COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION
The community participates in every phase of the building project.

 

COMMUNITY OWNERSHIP
The community receives ownership of the bridge at the opening ceremony.

 

...to build a bridge.

BtGA assists community leaders to involve local volunteers, who gather sand and rock for the bridge footings and raise a portion of the cost to build the footbridge. We provide technical expertise and financial assistance to design and construct a safe and secure pedestrian footbridge.

At the completion of every project, BtGA formally commissions the bridge to celebrate the community's achievement with speeches, singing, food, and gifts.
