Village of Yassargachan is located close to the city of Gonbad Kavoos in the northern Iranian province of Golestan.  A dream was finally fulfilled for the residents of the village when a bridge was built to allow them to easily cross Gorganrood river.

Till now, the residents had to cross the river using an unsafe boat, and this was the only way for the children to get to their school. The river is 5 meters deep; and the boat, which lacked any safety equipments was pulled using ropes, by the children themselves, from one side of the river to the other.   However, thanks to the coverage by Mehr reporter and the attention brought to the dilemma of the residents, finally the authorities took action and constructed a bridge.
