Building Community and a Bridge

Sep 26, 2022 | Bolivia

After 6 weeks of work, the Bolivia Team finished their bridge project with the help of students fromGeorgia Tech, East Mennonite University, and the community of Jatun Pampa.  Our members spent several weeks constructing the bridge anchors on either side of the crevasse using a combination of masonry and concrete.  They then spent their last week on the project hoisting the cables and laying the decking, which was the last stage of the build.

This project was such a great experience for everyone on the project team, and it ultimately provided a great service to this community!

Check out the following video for the process and completed bridge:
