About Ulu

The word, “ulu”, means raised place. In the 18th century, a railway station was erected along the railway line in the area.

The railway was moving products from the coastal region of Kenya to Nairobi and they felt this area was “raised” above the sea level area. Thus, the name Ulu was chosen.

This area was originally occupied by white settlers and people from the Mukaa and Kilungu areas.

Fertile lands and adequate rainfall provide opportunities for many community members in farming. The most popular crops are maize and beans. Community members are also involved in brick making, livestock and small businesses.

Ulu has partnered with 410 Bridge since 2023. Their major languages are Kamba, Swahili, and English.

Sponsor the Community of Ulu

When you sponsor the Ulu community through 410 Bridge, you support programs and projects that allow the people to fix their own unique set of barriers. Every chance we get, we want to empower and lift up people to recognize that God has given them giftings and skills to move their communities forward to a better and more self-sustaining place.

Sponsoring the Ulu community, whether for $18, $23, $35, or more a month, allows for this to happen.
