Bible Society of Kenya continues to realize her mission of making available the Holy Scriptures in
affordable and innovative formats for holistic transformation of people’s lives. Through our Bible advocacy programmes, we avail Scriptures in different formats so that people may have hope amidst the many challenges experienced in the world
In April 2018 Bible Society of Kenya in collaboration with Netherlands Bible Society distributed Bibles to school going children from marginalized communities in Kajiado, Embu and Nairobi Counties. The Bible distribution was aimed at enabling the children to interact with the Word of God and to grow their
spiritual and moral values.
We interviewed some of the students that benefited from this programme and most of them confessed that they had not owned a Bible before. They appreciated the Scriptures received and promised to read them and to improve their performance in Christian Religious Education. The teachers also promised to utilize the Bibles in teaching during their PPI lessons so that pupils may know God personally.
I have never owned a Bible. My family owns a Maasai Bible which I cannot read because it’s shared by all my parents and siblings. I love the bible because it enables me to grow spiritually. I enjoy singing and interacting with small children so that when they grow up they can look at me as their role model. My favorite Bible story is the story of Ananias and Saphira which teaches that stealing from the Church is wrong, says Charity Naismoi Simoren, 10years, Illparrua Primary School Kajiado County
I love chapatti as my favourite meal and I would like to become a pilot in future. I often read the Bible especially in the evening with my parents. My favorite story is the one of Noah since he was obedient when he was asked by God to take good care of animals in the boat. Given a Bible, I would love to share with my neighbor a friend so that he may improve in CRE, says Peter Njeru Kinyua, 12 years, Kianjokoma Primary School Embu County
I am in form one and love reading as a hobby. My family has only one Bible which I share with my mother. I enjoy reading the Bible in the morning as it encourages me to have an easy day at school. I also read the Bible at night and pray to God to protect my father who works as a policeman at night. I get encouragement by reading the Bible when I am sad and lonely, says Valerie Moraa, 16years, Mihango Secondary School Nairobi County
