Description

About Us

Destiny Garden School is being established at Mtongwe -
one of the poorest suburbs of Mombasa, on Kenya's coast.

With the help of donations, the school bought a plot of land 122 by 22 metres but, at the moment, the classrooms are rented in a building nearby. Trees have been planted on this land and it is used for growing crops to help feed the children. There is a neaby borehole and water is pulled up from this on a 60 metre rope for irrigation.

More than half of the children are orphans and at least a quarter of them are HIV positive. Families of the children will mostly struggle to find regular work in an area where jobs are scarce. The charity would never stop a child from attending the school but the situation does increase the burden on resources.

Destiny Garden School comes under the umbrella of Mabadiliko Care International, a charity founded in 2004 - www.mabadilikocareinternational.org

Jacob Boaz manages Destiny Garden School. He also coordinates the fund raising and looks after all the volunteers. Jacob established another school in a different area of Mombasa which provided him with valuable experience to get Destiny Garden School up and running - his big dream is to help the children in this very poor district of Mombasa.

Food - Destiny Garden School provides a cooked lunch for all the children each day. It is not uncommon for families to go without food and for many of the children the lunch they receive at the School is their only proper meal of the day
