Destiny Community Centre was found in 2001 with the core objectives of providing education to the most disadvantaged children in our communities. Since then, Destiny has been registered with the registrar of societies and also with the Ministry Of Education And Early Child development.
The compelling story was that our community called Matero was the most hit community by the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the all of Zambia. Mainly this was attributed to high poverty levels that made our people get into all kinds of negative behaviors. 33% of our people were infected and were dying at a very alarming speed. By this time, there were no ARVS interventions by the government till late 2004. Being a clergyman, much time was spent on conducting funerals. This left most of the children orphaned and vulnerable. And so Destiny was started as a quick community response to the suffering of the so many orphaned children. A way was to be found to give these children a future. We couldn’t sit and watch death devastate children’s destinies and so something was to be started. Initially the founders would go into the community from door to door, identify needy children, find school place for them in the government schools and then pay for their school requisites.
By 2001, about 150 children were enrolled into these public schools and sponsored by the founders of Destiny. However, public schools reached a saluted point where they couldn’t take in any more these children. It was at this point Destiny was born with 30 children and 2 volunteer teachers learning in an old abandoned and vandalized former City Council beer hall. Today Destiny Community Centre is the hope of so many children.
