part of Bible Society of Kenya’s children’s programmes aimed at inculcating good morals and positive behavior change among young people. The purpose of this event is to sensitize young leaders from different backgrounds to interact with God’s word and appreciate its importance in their lives and for the future.
The theme of this event is drawn from the book of Isaiah 40:31 which states that “they will rise on wings like eagles.”
The BSK General Secretary Mrs. Elizabeth Muriuki emphasizes that in response to BSK’s mission to make available and promote use of Scriptures for holistic transformation of people’s lives, the Bible Eagles Club fun day enhances positive transformation among the youth and children who are leaders of tomorrow.

These forums are held annually and are open to youth from 3-18 years to enjoy fun activities and fellowship as they engage with Scripture.
