We are a Bridge
to Dignity through
Building Community Bridges raises the quality of life in rural communities in Togo and Ghana through our social enterprise and development projects. The principles of dignity and self-determination guide our purpose in leveraging partnerships (the “Bridge”) to empower and transform villages.
The livelihoods of rural communities in Togo and Ghana have been crushed by a lack of access to basic developmental resources such as water and sanitation facilities. Inaccessibility to education on improved farming technologies, proper tools, and equipment further impedes their ability to overcome poverty. Building Community Bridges was formed in 2010 to foster locally-sourced solutions that transform these underserved communities.
As a social enterprise, Nafon Rice produces and sells commercial rice, creates jobs, and enables farmers to generate increased profits from their fields, contributing to poverty reduction and impacting community transformation.
BCB fuses social development and entrepreneurship to be a facilitating "bridge" to change. We developed sustainable solutions to root causes of economic and developmental challenges. BCB is the “parent organization” of Nafon Rice and helps increase the agricultural workforce's educational and technical skills.
