Mwaramutse (good morning) from Kucyaruseke Bridge! – Day 3

Day 3 on site and you can begin to imagine what this bridge will look like.

Our first full day without rain(!), and another day of amazing strength and energy from the community. Everyone has been very welcoming and enthusiastic about the build and they’ve been coming to show us their appreciation. Many thanks to the local community who give their hands and hearts to the project.


Kucyaruseke Bridge is taking shape! All cables have been adjusted, the first crossbeams have been installed, wood is being cut and treated, fabrication is going steadily and one abutment is backfilled. Phew!

Not only that, but we found out just how well used the current crossing is. Young and old, humans and goats, from one side to the other they went.

It’s only one bridge. But for the people here, this bridge will make a massive difference to their daily lives.

We appreciate the support of our family and friends back home – thank you everyone.
