Topcon GNSS and surveying instruments headed to Africa to assist Bridges to Prosperity efforts

January 29, 2021

Around 1.2 billion people worldwide lack safe access to critical resources such as healthcare, education, and economic opportunities due to impassable rivers.

Founded in 2001, Bridges to Prosperity is a nonprofit organization based in the U.S. It has built over 350 bridges across the world, mainly in Southeast Asia, Africa, and South America, under the vision of “We envision a world where poverty caused by rural isolation no longer exists”.

Topcon Positioning Systems Inc., our U.S. subsidiary, has donated GNSS surveying instruments and optical surveying instruments to the project in East African country of Rwanda.
We have contributed to the improvement of progress management of the construction work and the productivity by connecting the site and the office via network.
