Bryce Yamamoto ’03 Helps Build Bridge in Rwandan Service Project
Bryce Yamamoto ’03 traveled to Rwanda to participate in a service project with 10 coworkers from Fortis Construction. The team, along with members of the nonprofit organization Bridges to Prosperity and community members, constructed the 78-meter Rwabagenzi Bridge in Muhanga, Rwanda from April 18 to 29.
During the rainy seasons when rivers flood and become impassable rural communities lose access to essential services from hospitals, markets and schools. The Rwabagenzi Bridge now provides five communities and more than 4,500 people access to these services year-round.
