Naliu Village Wu Zhi Qiao

Site Location – Naliu Village, Ayong Township, Funing County

Site Background – In every rainy and flood season, local students have to be carried by their teachers to cross the river to school. The kids can’t cross the river and return home without adults’ help. Sometimes, the students even cried besides the river as nobody can help them. Though there is a temporary and simple wooden bridge, it is too dangerous to use. The commutation between villagers are affected as it takes about three hours for villagers to bypass the river if there is no bridge. It is estimated that 1,025 villagers and 153 students will be directly benefited from the footbridge newly built. Regarding the plan of community enrichment projects, the team will plan to improve the roads near the local school, indoor lighting of classrooms, and environmental hygiene condition within area of the school zone.
