$1,000: May 2012 – Elizabeth Toomey (Madagascar, 2011-2013)
The bridge has also made the work significantly easier for the farmers because they no longer have to worry during the rainy season about the rising water level; they are able to work through it and use the bridge as a safe avenue home. The same goes for children going to school, people going to the market, etc. This bridge is a benefit to the local economy, education, health, and safety of all of the villagers in Sahanambo Valley. Something that used to be a big problem has turned into a non-issue, thanks to all of your help!
