Building Bridges in Panama

Hello! My name is Hardik Doshi. I am recent graduate of the Masters of Engineering in Structural Engineering program at Lehigh University. Prior to beginning my full time engineering job in New York City, I decided to take some time off and visit Panama to volunteer with Bridges to Prosperity (B2P). B2P provides isolated communities in developing countries with access to essential health care, education and economic opportunities by building footbridges over impassable rivers. I will be spending my time in Panama working with B2P Panama Country Manager, Jake Moriarty, travelling to isolated parts of the country to identify possible footbridge sites and commence construction on the Boqueron River Bridge located in the province of Colon. We are fortunate enough to have the in-country support of Engineers Without Borders – Panama, Panama Canal Authority, and CH2MHILL. I will update this blog as I begin my exciting journey in Panama.
