Meet the newest (and youngest) entrepreneurs in Irigithathi!

Recently, our Kenyan Staff saw an opportunity to engage students in Irigithathi in a big way! This last year has been taxing on students, teachers, and communities as a whole. The education system in Kenya, for the majority of 2020 was basically shut down. Students were out school and not learning which opened doors to poor behavior and bad habits in many different communities.

Our staff has been working tirelessly with community leaders on how they could engage the youth in a way that would encourage them to stay out of trouble and continue working towards their goals, even if school was not in session.

Pictured below is Micah, our Economic Development Program Coordinator in Kenya, walking a group of young people through our Business Start-up Training. A course normally designed for adults, but one that can truly ignite creativity and hope in young people as well! Thank you to everyone who so generously donates and supports The 410 Bridge, you have helped us make countless events like this possible, which truly leaves a lasting impact on the lives of so many.

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.

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.
