Classroom 7 for Destiny Garden School

Can you please help us raise funds for this classroom?

thermometer

At the start of the Kenyan academic year, in January 2013, our oldest children, currently in class 6, should be moving up to class 7.  As yet, though, their classroom is merely an open piece of ground within the school perimeter.  We therefore need to raise enough money to enable a new classroom to be built, so that these children can continue their education

DGS has successfully built sufficient classrooms for all ten of the current classes over the last three years. The school just needs two more classrooms in order to provide the children with a full primary education: classroom 7 in 2013 and classroom 8 in 2014. The photograph below shows the location of the current classrooms and the proposed site for classrooms 7 and 8. Please read 'Classrooms at DGS' below for details of how the existing classrooms were funded.

Unfortunately we have been unsuccessful in our grant applications for Classroom 7 and now have to find ways of raising the funds ourselves. 

We need to raise £7,000 for Classroom 7. Over the last few months we have put fundraising and donations into a ‘Classroom 7 fund’ and now have nearly £4,000.

Donations can be made as detailed below. Perhaps you would consider arranging a fundraising event for DGS - for example hold a coffee morning, a dinner party, a cake/book sale, do a sponsored walk, or collections from your friends, family and colleagues.  

 

Donations can be made -

c) by cheque made payable to 'Destiny Children' and sent to the Charity address below

d) by online transfer to Destiny Children's account; details below

e) by emailing us at  with a pledge

f) via our PayPal account. There is a link to PayPal on the 'can you help' page of this website. Paypal take a small charge and accept credit or debit cards.

 

Gift Aid Logo* if you would like Destiny Children to reclaim tax on your donation, please let us know. You understand that you must pay an amount of income tax or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax reclaimed by the charity. This provides a valuable extra source of funding to us at no extra cost to you; 25% of your donation, and will be added to the class 7 fund.

Classrooms at Destiny Garden School


In May 2009 Destiny Garden School opened with 160 children and 7 classrooms, located in this rented building.   Classes at the School were conducted on mats - there were no chairs, desks or blackboards.DGS Classrooms

In March 2010 a generous donation was received from Dr George which enabled a Kindergarten Block to be built. This houses the Baby class and KG1, KG2 & KG3.

In May 2010  donations were received from three of Destiny Children’s committee members, and from Jackie, who helped to set up the school. Theses donations enabled four more classrooms to be built.

 

 

 

During 2011, funds raised by Destiny Children, the Kings' School Macclesfield, and a grant from the Kitchen Table Charity Trust enabled Destiny Garden School to build two new Classrooms for Classes 5 and 6. These provide a very suitable learning environment, as the photos below show.
