Update: Totolima Trip Successful

From August 16th to September 6th, our travel team was residing in the rural areas of Totolima, Bolivia, completing the first build for Bridges to Prosperity’s University of Waterloo Chapter.

Our travel team was comprised of 5 members:

  • Dilan Badshah – President and Quality Control Manager
  • Relja Lukić – Project Manager
  • Arthur Li – Technical Manager
  • Sion Chung – Construction Manager
  • Marianne Baucas – Safety Manager

With the help of our Technical Advisor, B2P staff, and volunteers from the surrounding communities, our team was able to complete the bridge in a timely manner, and the results were amazing (and extremely colourful!).

We’d like to thank all of our sponsors once again for their support throughout this project, as well as B2P for assisting throughout the entire process – from finding a location to surveying the area to building the final product in Bolivia.

Our team is excited to share their experiences! You can find a photo journal of their adventure here, but also look out for their journal entries, which were written daily throughout their trip to Bolivia, as we will be posting them within the next week.

Until then, here are some photos that our travel team took in Totolima, as they completed our first bridge! To see the complete gallery, click here.
