Bridge Building Program

Makeshift and highly hazardous bridges in villages in poor villages are being replaced with engineer-design concrete bridges suitable for pedestrian and vehicular traffic thanks to Vietnam Foundation’s successful bridge building program. We partner up with local charities and pro-bono bridge design engineers to deliver a continuing program of bridge building which helps connect communities, and vastly improve safety and accessibility for all.
