Mutirithia Community Updates: Business and Beyond

We are thankful for the generosity you have shown towards the Mutirithia community over the last few months. We are amazed by the dedication of the Mutirithia Leadership Council, the church pastors, and 410 Bridge staff who have continued to work diligently throughout this difficult season.

At the end fo 2020, BST beneficiaries in Mutirithia had the opportunity to participate in an online mentorship program. Not only were trainees able to talk about their businesses, they were able to pray and read the Word of God together. We are so grateful for the staff members and participants that made this mentorship program possible!

The BST beneficiaries in Mutirithia formed a group that consists of individuals who run personal businesses. Each member contributed funds that were used to open a joint bank account. From this account, they are facilitating a savings group that each member will contribute to biweekly. With time, the collected money will be used to issue loans to group members and trusted members of the community.

Please continue to keep the community of Mutirithia in your prayers. Schools have re-opened and students and teachers are working diligently to try and get back into a new rhythm. Community prayer requests include:

  • Discernment for leaders as they make decisions that impact the entire community
  • Provision for people who are suffering
  • Safety from the COVID-19 virus

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.
