410 Day is Back!

What is 410 Day?

Happening on April 10th each year, 410 Day is an annual day of generous giving for our 410 Bridge community. We take this day each year to celebrate and propel positive change in the countries we work in.  

This year, we’re coming together to create lasting and sustainable economic impact for families in Kenya and Guatemala.  

We’re raising $41,000 for Kenya and $41,000 for Guatemala which will support our vital economic development programs in each country.  

How will 410 Day impact Kenya?  

Donations on 410 Day can purchase a goat, a pig, or chickens for a family living in extreme poverty in Kenya as part of our economic development programs. These livestock options are not just a one-time gift but will actually benefit families and their communities for years to come.  

What a Livestock Gift Provides for a Family in Extreme Poverty: 

  • Access to essential nutrients and protein for healthy development in children 
  • A start-up business which provides much-needed income, helping pay for necessities and school fees 
  • Support from 410 Bridge through programs centered on livestock care techniques and a gifting program that ensures the first-born animal from the original animal is gifted to another community member — creating self-sustainability for years after.  

Other donations can go towards our Savings Group program, which helps community members stabilize their household income, have a safety net for emergencies, start or expand businesses, and cover household expenses such as school fees. 

How will 410 Day impact Guatemala? 

Donations on 410 Day can purchase a bee farm, fruit trees, or chickens for a family living in extreme poverty in Guatemala as part of our economic development programs. 

Within our Foundation for Farming program, bee farms and fruit trees provide future opportunities for families to grow a sustainable food source, which provides food security and encourages economic development in the community.

The Foundation for Farming program helps community members utilize their bee farm and fruit trees through education on land preparation, fertilization, appropriate planting techniques, weed control, thinning, top dressing, and making compost. 

Other donations can go towards our Savings Group program, which helps community members stabilize their household income, have a safety net for emergencies, start or expand businesses, and cover household expenses such as school fees. 

How can you get involved?

It is our hope that every member of the 410 Bridge community will participate in this significant day by giving towards our $82,000 goal.

At the 410 Bridge, we work through the community leaders who ensure continuity of the community’s development even after graduation. During our partnership journey, we walk alongside indigenous community leaders and church leaders as they mobilize and unify the community to participate in their own development – shifting their perspectives and owning the solutions.

Serving with Joy: A Week in Mutirithia, Kenya

If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Kenya, allow me to do my best to try to put into words what an incredible life-changing experience that you really need to do at least once in your life. 

I was recently blessed to travel to Mutirithia, Kenya with an amazing group of 20 other Christian men to serve the families in that community over the course of a week. 

We prepared for weeks to make sure everyone understood the primary objective of the trip, which was to build upon relationships already formed in the community and to spread the Word to as many people as we could. 

Allow me to unfold a day-by-day glimpse of what we experienced:
