Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

1. Analysis of the World Today a) Overly connected and distracted: People live in a highly connected but isolated environment, leading to feelings of isolation and stress. There is a pervasive focus on social media and constant comparison. b) Crisis and numbness: The world faces numerous crises, leading to a sense of numbness and a lack of empathy towards individual or specific groups of people. People are often overwhelmed and unsure of how to help effectively. c) Division in faith communities: While faith in God remains, there is increasing division among Purpose and Industry: People Bridge aims to strengthen and encourage missional leaders to fulfill their God-given dreams. We are laser focus on receptive missional leaders that are followers of Jesus and leaning into their strengths and gifts. It operates primarily in Kenya, serving forgotten children, alleviating poverty through job training and micro-loans, and providing respite care to missional leaders in Central Florida.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Goal 1: Enhance Organizational Accountability and Communication
Objectives:
a) Establish clear accountability measures between the executive director, board, and stakeholders.
b) Improve financial accounting and transparency in Kenya.
c) Develop a clear 3-year strategic plan, involving input from stakeholders. We must start with the end in mind.
d) Increase communication and engagement with financial and prayerful supporters.

2. Goal 2: Strengthen Program Effectiveness and Impact
Objectives:
a) Expand entrepreneurial job training in schools, prisons, and savings groups in Kenya.
(we are training 400+ weekly in Junee 2023. Our goal is 1000 weekly by January 2024.)
b) Establish a faith-based school in the Mathare slums, providing quality education to underprivileged children.
(We have 150 youth weekly involved in programs presently)
c) Enhance the respite care program for missional leaders, ensuring rest and resources that they could use.
(We whysically allow friends and missional leaders to stay at our places now.)

3. Goal 3: Build Sustainable Funding Strategies
Objectives:
a) Develop a comprehensive fundraising strategy, including diversifying funding sources.
(Right now we fund all our programs as best as we can with the funding on hand)
b) Cultivate relationships with potential donors and partners.
c) Implement effective financial planning and budgeting processes.
