what we do

Enyonam Nanevie

Founder/ Chairman of the Board

 

Building Community Bridges, Inc. was founded as a result of the questions posed by a small team of volunteers in 2006, in Togo, West Africa.  Those questions stirred all of us to action. Why are these villages so destitute? Why were there no resources to help them develop? Why were so many young girls and women walking 6-7 miles looking for water, that they might not find?  But most importantly, why was there no exposure of their plight?   Building Community Bridges, (BCB) issued from our collective reflection that together we can seek  answers and generate solutions through innovation.

our mission

Rural populations in West Africa living in self-sufficient communities with access to resources enabling them to thrive.​

​Our approach compels a community-centered process that blends social and economic development to foster the economic, social, ecological and cultural well-being of  a community. We maintain that  problems facing communities need to be addressed in a holistic and participatory  way. We also strongly support the use of local resources in a manner that  enhances   opportunities while improving  conditions in a  sustainable way long-term. 

our purpose 

Develop a schema that is a foundation of a new paradigm founded upon self-reliance, dignity,  partnership, and reduction of aid-dependency in West Africa.
