Site Location – Dangzheng Village, Hui County, Longnan City

Site Background – Dangzheng Village is located in Southeast Gansu. There are 5 groups with about 800 populations (more than 300 households) in this village. The village is separated by a river.

The Need – Villagers of several groups have to cross the river to go out for daily supplies, education and medical treatment. In winter, villagers put a simple wooden bridge on the river. In summer, the wooden bridge will be washed away. During flood season, students cannot cross the river for school.

Villagers Benefited – 800 nos (150 students)
