Team 3 members Daniel Ramey and Matt Lipa completed the work of the slates, cables, and finishing construction work

We want to thank you for your interest in our project!

The Orange County Professionals Chapter of Engineers Without Borders-USA is involved in community-driven sustainable engineering projects in developing nations worldwide.

Our Kenya Footbridge project aims to build a bridge across the Ewaso Ng'iro River to enable the people of Endana to access the Segera Mission Clinic.

In addition to medical services, free preschool, kindergarten, and grade schools, the Segera Mission has an orphanage.

Currently the able bodied people are unable to cross the river during flooding and rainy seasons.  In addition, children and elderly must make the 18 mile trek around the river to reach the clinic and school.  

The bridge would allow year around access to school and clinic for the entire community. We began construction August 18, 2010.
