Rebuilding a footbridge to cross the river



Our objective is to rebuild the footbridge that serves as the main access to the community of Tlalpizalti, which over 150 people use daily. These people include farmers and families that have been living here for more than 10 years. Since this small community lives in poverty it is hard for it to access government funds to improve infrastructure, but community participation is laying the groundwork for improving the quality of life of its inhabitants through their own efforts.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The bridge is in very poor conditions, people have even fallen into the river trying to cross! The other option to exit the community is a walk of about 0.3 of a mile. The community assembly has agreed to work on this project since September 2013. Until now, they have been organized several collections and a charity fair to start raising funds. We ask for your help to raise the 50% of the total project. The leadership of this project relies on the community in every sense.

How will this project solve this problem?

Rebuilding this bridge will ensure a safe access for more than 150 inhabitants and will stand as a symbol of community development.

Potential Long Term Impact

Increased confidence of the inhabitants to work in more complex and valuable projects for their community. This project is a symbol of community identity, a physical expression of joint efforts.
