The Haitian Institute Pedestrian Bridge Program
Inspired by the senseless deaths that occur each year as Haitian peasants are forced to cross swollen rivers to carry their produce to market, in addition to the disruptions that ensue in the education system when it rains, this project aims to build pedestrian bridges in Haiti’s remote regions, especially in the mountains. We seek to build one bridge a year. Our target is the remote regions of Haiti’s Northwest Department. This is the most isolated and effectively forgotten place in all of Haiti.
By building bridges across selected rivers and canyons, the Pedestrian Bridge Program will have significant economic and educational impact on the lives of the Haitian people.
