Community Update Wednesday Kiria, Kenya

The water storage tank at Kiria Primary School, that began construction in June, is complete! With the completion of this tank, and the expansion of water pipes, Kiria only needs one more tank to make the amount of water sufficient for the community.

The construction of four new toilets, designated for female students, will begin in the upcoming weeks; the digging was complete in October. They will be on the grounds of Kiria Primary School.

A man was saved on October 27th at AIPCA Church. The congregation was very excited and prayed the church may receive more men, which is the prayer of the entire community.

On October 15th, the Kinangop area communities (Kiria, Kwambekenya, and Karima) donated bags of cabbages and potatoes to another 410 Bridge community, Mivukoni. The community has been suffering from a food shortage due to a terrible drought. Those from Kinangop who went to donate the food were encouraged because they realized they are able to give what they have, and not always receive.

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.
