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.

I’ve always asked “Why is Kenya so different?”  “What makes it so special?” 

Being a part of a Global Missions team, I have had the opportunity to help send teams to Kenya but never experience it myself.  The teams always came back bonded and something was different.

One Day At Church

One day at church I felt a calling or a nudge that God wanted me to serve in a different way. I looked through my church’s opportunities and as soon as I saw Kenya I felt a wash of joy flood over me. I applied that day and was overjoyed to hear shortly back that I had been accepted to go. Our church gave us the book “If You Really Want To Help” and from there I fell in love with what 410 was doing for the people of Kenya, especially after reading the story of Chris in Kahuria.

Learnings From Kiu, Kenya

Our partnership with Kiu community started way back in 2009 making it one of the first communities to partner with the 410 Bridge since its inception in Kenya in 2006. 

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.
