It brings us great joy that you are considering working with the Illinois Chapter of the EIA Bridge Program. We believe that no human should be denied access to healthcare, education, or economic opportunity due to an impassable river. It is estimated that 1 billion people worldwide suffer from rural isolation [via World Bank Group]. We strive to bring this number down to zero with each bridge build.
Since our chapter’s beginning in 2015, we have been blessed with the opportunity to be on three bridge builds in Guatemala, Panama, and Bolivia.
We are currently planning for a bridge build this summer, 2020, in Eswatini. The materials used on these bridges (cement, cables, bricks, etc.), the tools, the equipment, travel costs and more add up to be very expensive. Our fundraising goal this year is $10,000. It would mean the world to us if you could help make this bridge build possible, with any donation amount. Below is our Corporate Partnership Packet, which explains more about our program, and shows the extra benefits of partnering with us.
