The Bible Society of Kenya has the mandate to avail scriptures for holistic transformation of lives through bible distribution. Through support from generous partners and partnerships with fellow Bible Societies around the world, the vision of Bible Society of Kenya that people are transformed by use of Holy Scriptures is realized through distribution of Bibles to marginalized school children.
The programme aims at providing Bibles to school children in marginalized primary and secondary schools in communities where families cannot afford to buy a Bible due to poverty.
Mark 10:14 says “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Children need the Lord, they need the word.
Our objective for this project is to enable the recipients to interact with God’s Word for spiritual and moral formation, use the Bibles as a reference material for PPI (Pastoral Programme Instruction) as well as improvement in the Christian Religious Education (CRE), a subject that is taught and examined among students in Kenya.
