DukeEngage Builds Bridges with Communities in Eswatini
This summer, DukeEngage students worked with local community members and a team of masons to construct a suspension bridge over a seasonally flooding river in Eswatini. Limited to mostly rudimentary materials, they used pickaxes, shovels, and their bare hands.
They finished the 122-meter-long bridge in just nine weeks. They came home with the experience of a lifetime.
“What DukeEngage is intended to do, and has done so well over the last 20 years, is give students a vision for the world around them in ways that are really impactful and tangible and humbling.” – David Schaad
