Destiny Garden Primary School is a charity school and was founded in May 2009. It is located in Mtongwe, one of the poorest suburbs of Mombasa.The School focuses on supporting the most vulnerable children in their society – orphans, and disadvantaged children. Its work is especially important since there is an increasing number of orphans and underprivileged children in this area.
