Global 410 Bridge COVID Update

This year has thrown the world for a loop. As a community development organization that exists to help people lift themselves from extreme poverty, we’ve learned that in times of crisis, people don’t need development…they need relief. Over the years, we’ve faced natural disasters, political turmoil, and civil unrest.  During those times we’ve been careful about the amount of time we spend in “relief mode”.  It’s important for our communities and the progress of their self-development to move out of relief and into a period of restoration as quickly as possible so they can stabilize and continue their journey of development once again.

As COVID-19 continues to impact our country and the world, changing each day, our communities will know when the time is right for them to safely re-open.  Safely restarting businesses, re-opening schools, and churches are the new priorities over the coming months.

Please watch the three videos below for updates with our Executive Director, Kurt Kandler, and our Programs Staff! If you would like to help our communities prepare to re-open businesses, schools, and churches, please visit this link: We ask that you continue to join us in prayer as our communities continue to face uncertainty.

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.
