Marlène, Marc, Michal, Nicola and Pedro came back from Rwanda on Monday 12th February, their heads full of marvelous memories, happy and proud of the completed work.
As part of American NGO Bridges to Prosperity project, 10 volunteers from Freyssinet and the Danich company COWI went to Rwanda to build the Kucyaruseke bridge along with local teams. Housed in the village, they shared the local community life and actively took part to works for 15 days
At the end of these two weeks of work and despite tight deadlines, the Freyssinet and COWI volunteers and the locals team succeeded to erect this 80-meter span bridge, a great news for the local community.
The bridge was inaugurated on the 9th of February with a huge enthusiasm with local authorities and volunteers the volunteers and will improve the community access to school, healthcare and markets.
The budget for the Kucyaruseke bridge project is entirely funded by donations, the fundraising campaign has thus been set up online in order to raise funds.
