Mission: Bridging the Gap, Inc. is dedicated to saving lives and improving the quality of life for marginalized communities across sub-Saharan Africa by constructing pedestrian footbridges to overcome the dangers posed by impassable rivers and ravines that threaten their safety, limit their access to education and healthcare, and restrict economic opportunity.
Results: Over 45 foot bridges have been completed
Target demographics: Marginalized communities within sub-Saharan Africa
I have been a volunteer with this organization for the past 8 years. It is a great organization that operates almost completely with volunteers. The organization provides footbriges that save lives and open the door to opportunity. I have helped to build 4 of these bridges and will never forget the experience of meeting the communities that benifit from the bridges.
