ABOUT THE FOOTBRIDGE
Dupont Rotary is partnering with the Rotary Club of Harare City to build a footbridge in Murehwa, Zimbabwe (approximately 65 kilometers from Harare) and is lending its financial, technical, cultural, and international expertise to aid in the project's success. The bridge will connect local students to their school, which is located on the opposite banks of the Shayanhowe River, allowing for continued access to education during the rainy season.
Successful completion of the footbridge project will result in increased safety for children crossing the river to attend school, improved attendance in the classroom, and greater access to education, in addition to lessening the burden on parents, who often are forced to take time away from paid employment in order to supervise their children's safe crossing of the river. All materials and labor needed for the project will be locally and competitively sourced, contributing to the local economy and the sustainable maintenance of the footbridge.
Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased through Eventbrite.
