When you walk with a community, month to month, towards empowerment, great things happen!

Who We Are

The 410 Bridge is a community development organization that engages followers of Christ to help people in developing nations lift themselves from poverty, restoring dignity, purpose and freedom.

What We Do

Our Development Model

Indigenous Leadership

A leadership council, comprised primarily of local pastors and leaders is established. They then assess their gifts and greatest needs.

Development Plan

Leadership prioritizes the areas of development and makes an action plan. The 410 Bridge and its partners then come alongside the community to help them reach their goals.

Community Graduation

We measure our success not by what we do for the community, but what the community does for itself. Our goal is to get communities to the point of graduation, where they no longer need help from outsiders.
