Our History

  • In 2001, Bridges to Prosperity founder Ken Frantz saw a photo in National Geographic Magazine. The image showed men dangling precariously across a broken bridge span over a portion of the Blue Nile River, Ethiopia. Within three months, Ken, who owned a construction company, donated time, money and materials to support the inaugural B2P project.

Beneficiaries

  • The General Public / Mankind

    Isolated communities with little access to education, health care, and economic opportunity.

Our Vision for a better future

  • We envision a world where poverty caused by rural isolation no longer exists. We believe that footbridges are the most efficient way to transform rural community economies, and we believe we can scale footbridge programs more quickly than other transportation infrastructure solutions.

Our goals to make a difference

  • To build and maintain durable, environmentally sustainable bridges that provide safe access.

  • For industry professionals and trained locals to inspect footbridges and provide support for upkeep.

  • To collaborate with local partners and communities because local buy-in and ownership is critical.

  • To build bridges resilient to extreme weather events, with locally sourced and donated materials.
