A community group in Wudabi-Morobo County managed to build their own bridge after many years of difficulties they faced whenever they were crossing a river when it floods. The river interfered with their children’s studies and many a times could not attend market days once it’s was over flowing. Across Radio project supplied DAPs to this community containing Participatory Awakening programs. One of the programs loaded on the audio player was a testimony of Lul community bridge project.
Lul community initiated a project and completed it two years ago. The constructed a bridge enabled Lul community to access market for their farm produce from a market across a river. This testimony impacted a young man called Ofeni Moga from Wudabi who actually lost his father in this river that used to be crossed on three poles.
After a group listened to what the group in Lul did, they quickly gathered their community for a meeting and an idea of constructing a bridge was on top of their agenda. People where mobilized and they cut down huge logs to make a bridge. Since then, their women can access a near by market and children do not miss attending school after heavy rains. The bridge build is strong enough to stand weight of a light vehicle.
In this picture,Moga stands at the site of the bridge constructed by Wudabis community and from this very spot his father got drowned before such idea could come. Thank God for his inspirational on Across DAPs messages.
