Bridges to Prosperity
The Rotary Club of Walnut Creek, in partnership with Bridges to Prosperity (B2P), the Rotary Club of Cochabamba (Bolivia) and five Rotary Clubs in the East Bay area are helping to build bridges in the Bolivian mountains. The picture below features work crews for a recently completed bridge in Machacamarca, Bolivia. The Bolivian Rotary Club partner for the project is Rotary Club of Cochabamba.
The young people pictured below are Bridges to Prosperity staff and engineers from US engineering firms that partner with B2P. They assist in the construction and provide training to local members of the beneficiary communities. Occupational training is key to the sustainability of these projects, as it amplifies the economic benefits of the bridges by supporting family incomes in the communities long term. The bridges are necessary safety and eonvience requirements to facilitate travel between the villages of the local population and places where they work and study. The bridges are particularly important during the rainy season.
The other East Bay Rotary clubs participating in the B2P project are from Concord, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek (Diablo View) and Concord-Diablo. More information on the overall B2P project can be found here.
