The Destiny Academy School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The Destiny Academy serves the educational needs of more than 500 students in Addis Ababa in preschool through grade 9.

Destiny has always been a school with a big vision driven by a passion for the poor. Many of the Destiny families cannot afford to send them to public schools due to the high cost of tuition, uniforms, and school supplies.

Destiny provides Gofa's children a chance to go to school regardless of their ability to pay. Teachers are committed to educating the whole child--mentally, physically, emotionally--and place a special emphasis on the virtues of respect, diligence, love, honesty, and peace.

Sponsorships and Mission Trips

The cost to sponsor one student for one year is $500. We are currently working to continue sponsoring 50 students at the school. Contact Jamie Wilbanks to learn more about impacting these students through giving them the opportunity to attend school, attain a better life for their family, and learn about the love of Christ.

We also send a team to serve at the school each year or every other year.  We have served in many ways including creating a library at the school, training teachers, teaching English classes for the students, repairing and constructing a campus, and most recently providing health education to the teachers and families of the sponsor students. We are also helping to support a nurse/social worker to serve the Destiny community on a full-time basis.

We are working on plans for a trip later this year or next year. To learn about participating on this trip, contact Jamie Wilbanks.
