Fika Map

Rural communities experience outsized negative effects when the lack of basic infrastructure means they can’t reach important destinations. We’ve developed Fika Map, a suite of remote analysis tools, to locate where access is most beneficial via the power of machine learning. The result? More scalable, impactful rural access solutions around the world.

Solutions for Connection

Bridges to Prosperity partners with communities, governments, private sector, research and technology, and other stakeholders to help plan, prioritize, assess, construct, and manage transport access for rural communities around the world.
