Class 8 Receives Text Books!

Soin Primary School in Chembulet recently received text books for their students in Class 8. Previously, the ratio of textbooks to students was 1:10 and those textbooks were in very poor shape with several pages missing.

The parents who were just as equally as excited as the students came in to receive the books and gave thanks for God’s provision. These parents contributed money to buy protective covers for the books and participated in covering each book together, with their students and the teachers.

There are 40 students currently in Class 8 at Soin Primary who will benefit from these books, which will also be available for use by the current Class 6 and Class 7 once they move on to Class 8. About 150 total students will benefit during this year and the next two years. Addressing the textbook to student ratio will allow these kids to have better access to books as they prepare for the KCPE exam at the end of Class 8. A measure of success of this activity will be improvement on the KCPE for Class 8 students moving forward.Thank you to everyone who partners and supports Chembulet community, your love and generosity is greatly improving education at Soin Primary!

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.
