Community Spotlight Wednesday Karogoto, Kenya

In early July, the community hosted a 3-day Pastors and Church Leaders Seminar. This seminar focused on empowering the church leaders to be more effective in administration, discipleship, and outreach.

Two Karogoto Primary Schools received awards for their outstanding results from the previous school year! Ngunguru Primary School was awarded 4 trophies: Best Managed School, Best in Math, Best in Science, and Most Consistent Performance for the district; Gathogorero Primary School was awarded the trophy for Most Improved School. This was awarded to them as a result for having raised their KCPE mean grade 44 points!

The Knitting Project is doing well! The women are still benefiting from their hard work and labor. They have learned a new skill of incorporating beading into their upcoming projects. In the upcoming weeks, new shelves will be built in the facility; these new shelves will allow the women to display and store their products.

Thank you to all who have invested in Karogoto! Please continue to pray for the community members in all of our 410 Bridge communities in Kenya, Haiti, and Uganda!

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.
