Reviews for Bridges International Development, Inc.
Bridges I D is "Winning the Heart of Africa For Jesus Christ" in the Mt. Kenya area of the semi arid area of north eastern Kenya by training pastors and women to become better pastors, Christian teachers, husbands and wives. BID assists vulnerable children stay in school while living at home with a parent or guardian. They also provide some food to those in drought ravaged areas and teach economic development projects such as raising chickens and goats and using improved farming methods for food production. Christian films and literature are also used to reach all ages in market places and schools all over the region. BID is changing Kenya for the better.
I have seen first hand the impact this organization makes in the lives of people in Meru. Vulnerable children that have been sponsored over the years are now going to college. Villages have received goats and instruction on how to raise their own vegetables. The hunger relief ministry has delivered food to starving people. Hundreds of pastors have been taught God's word and can now minister to others. This ministry truly pays it forward. Donations go to the ministry 100%.
