At present, our local partners are launching the construction of three footbridges in Haiti. These will be used by some 20 000 people. We have developed a number of other bridge projects, which will be used by about 450 000 people.

Bridges result in immediate improvement in users’ lives. They improve safety for users and their access to health services and schools. They also help producers get their goods to markets. This is very important in a context where most people experience food insecurity and many local crops are perishable.

Every new footbridge or bridge developed by Noria is an opportunity to ensure that a local enterprise acquires new skills and the capacity needed to both replicate and adapt the model.

Noria works in Haiti, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Madagascar and Benin.
