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.
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. At completion, the Gonchu Mayu Pedestrian bridge 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!
The annual Bridge Design Competition is set to take place on March 24! Running for its fourth year, this competition is designed to foster the student's passion and flair for engineering mechanics. The objective is to push the students' creative capacities by providing them with a valuable and more hands-on experience with structural design activities. Register Your Team HERE.
