Community Leaders Come Together


While in Kenya after Christmas I had the opportunity to work with leaders from our 4 Ngaamba communities in making a comprehensive map of the water system already in place in the Ngaamba area.  It was such a neat time to watch leaders from 4 separate leadership councils work together on a common goal, WATER.   This is what The 410 Bridge is about, leaders working together for the benefit of the people in their communities.  Water projects that have been completed in Ngaamba with the help of The 410 Bridge have made an incredible impact on the community.  We tend to think these projects only provide water, but leaders seeing vision for their communities is another huge benefit of these projects.  Only through the leaders guiding and the communities taking ownership will hope grow.  What a huge opportunity this was to see The 410 Bridge model in action.  Leaders gaining vision, hope growing and a community that is being transformed from within.  This is what we are about at The 410 Bridge.

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.
