RICHARDSON, TX – Kito Crosby has extended its partnership with Bridges to Prosperity (B2P), an advocacy organization looking to eliminate global poverty caused by rural isolation.

Since partnering with B2P in 2022, Kito Crosby has helped contribute to the construction of more than 140 bridges across the African continent.

As part of this partnership, Kito Crosby will provide essential materials including wire rope clips, turnbuckles, snatch blocks, manual hoists, wire rope tension meters and special trolleys for 40 bridge construction projects in Rwanda and 12 in Uganda, in addition to providing rigger awareness training to ensure safe operations.

The Kito Crosby team will also be dispatching 10 members of diverse backgrounds to help with a bridge construction project in Rwanda this November. This marks the third consecutive year that the company has done this, contributing team members to bridge projects in Uganda and Rwanda in 2022 and 2023, respectively.

“In collaboration with B2P and our global channel network, we envision a world where rural isolation is eliminated, enabling families to access healthcare, children to attend school safely, and farmers to reach local markets reliably,” said Robert Desel, CEO of Kito Crosby.
