Ramboll reported that crossing the Makurungwe River in Rwanda can be a dangerous undertaking. But something members of the Gashyushya community must do to get to the market, school or hospital. The river frequently floods for days at a time, causing injuries and death for people who attempt to cross. Five Ramboll engineers are going to change that.

Bridges to Prosperity: In September 2019, Ramboll will for the second year in a row, send a team of engineers to Africa together with the NGO “Bridges to Prosperity”, to help build a footbridge across the river, providing safe year-round access for the local communities.

Working on bridges is something many Ramboll employees do every day, however the Gashyushya suspension bridge is very different both in scale and in support. For more than 2,000 members of the Murama, Munini and surrounding communities the bridge will provide safe, year-round access, improving accessibility and providing an opportunity for economic growth for the communities.

Roser Marre bridge engineer who will function as Project Lead working out of Ramboll’s Copenhagen office, said that working on a project that will make a difference in so many people’s lives is an amazing opportunity. Moreover, this experience will make us grow both personally and professionally.
