Thirst for Knowledge 

Many children throughout the world have to take the most incredible and unimaginable routes in order to receive the education that some of us may take for granted. It’s important not to forget that, in some parts of the world, school can be a hard-won luxury.  Dangerous paths are one of the main reasons why many children decide to quit school. The lack of funds and recurring natural disasters in many countries make it difficult to provide children with the solutions they so desperately need.

Gondola bridges are common in the mountainous country of Nepal where good roads are in short demand.

Children use handcrafted bridges made with planks, improvised ropes and pulleys, without safety harnesses and double security restraint. For decades, this lack of security has caused numerous accidents. Fortunately, several NGOs are currently concerned with building safe bridges and gondolas to mitigate accidents.

VillageTech Solutions funds a popular, all-weather “gondola” bridge in Nepal. The bridge moves 40 to 80 adults, or 80 to 160 children per hour, safely each way across rivers up to 160 meters wide.
