    Knights Brown and Tony Gee have partnered once again to bring Bridges to Prosperity back to their businesses.

    Bridges to Prosperity is a US non-profit organisation that partners with local governments and corporate partners to connect rural communities to essential services such as education, healthcare and markets, through the construction of pedestrian footbridges.

    After a three year hiatus, a team of 10 volunteers from the two companies will travel to Rwanda this summer to work with Bridges to Prosperity and a local community, to complete the construction of a pedestrian trail bridge over a period of two weeks.

    The team will be fundraising for their trip over the coming months aiming to reach a target of £15,000. This will cover the cost of their flights, visas and vaccines as well as support future Bridges to Prosperity projects.

    The team comprises seven engineers, a BIM technician, a planner, and a QS.

    Previously, volunteers from the two companies constructed four footbridges between 2016 and 2019, two in Rwanda and two in Uganda. The four bridges collectively serve more than 21,000 people and have potentially saved 25 lives from being lost and numerous injuries. More than £60,000 has been raised under the partnership.
