"Envisioning a world where poverty caused by rural isolation no longer exists"

bridge

Our 2018 crowdfunding site is now officially live! Read and watch the story HERE. Proceeds from this campaign go directly towards the total bridge project costs. By August, the pedestrian bridge over the Gonchu Mayu River will service a total of 3 communities, providing 140+ with safe access year round. This marks B2P UofT's third independent bridge project; help us bridge the gap in Bolivia this June!


IridiumGO

This summer, our communications will be generously supported by Iridium. The team will be packing Iridium GO! into their gear. Iridium GO! is a hotspot that enables global voice calling, texting, and data capabilities in even the most isolated areas of the globe. This device allows up to five devices to be connected to it's hotspot, which will allow the team to easily communicate with the field office, send updates back home, and have communications in case of emergency. We'd like to thank Iridium for their contributions towards the Gonchu Mayu Pedestrian Bridge! Check out Iridium and what they do by clicking on the image.




We are thrilled to announce our two newest sponsors: R.V. Anderson and Klohn Cribben Berger! Find out more about these companies on our sponsors page or their websites (linked in images).



Get to Know Us!

We are a multidisciplinary team of University of Toronto students dedicated to raising awareness and making a positive impact on student and global life. Our chapter is a branch of the parent Bridges to Prosperity organization. Our students are determined to use their academic background and the expertise provided by B2P to bring footbridges from design to construction. Throughout the year we also host a multitude of events on campus engaging students, industry, and alumni.

Our mission is to bridge the gap of isolation in developing communities through the strategic design and construction of footbridges.
Our vision is of a world where a lack of adequate infrastructure does not contribute to global poverty.
Our values are human rights, professionalism, equality, education, innovation and excellence.

Imagine having your access to education, food, or healthcare be goverened by the height of a river. During the rainy season, many communities around the globe are faced with impassable waters. High water lines further isolate these communities from vital resources and economic opportunities. With a focus on sustainable global development and community engangement, each pedestrian footbridge project provides the communities we work with safe access for the entire year.
