The Raven Trust provides practical, direct support to needy communities in Malawi, East Africa.
This bridge will enable the community at Zenda to have all weather crossing of the local river. Previously, in the wet season the river was impassable so the children could not get to school or people to clinic services and the local trading centre.
The community is building this bridge and the piers have been started. A new track has had to be cleared to a place where a bridge was possible. In September the road decking will be constructed. Funding has come from various groups in Scotland and the Raven Trust has provided the materials and technical skills while the Chief has mobilized the local communities to be involved in the labour of building.
