Janette Hodgkinson worked as a volunteer at Destiny Garden School for 8 weeks in January and February 2013. She chose DGS after reading about the school on their website and being impressed with the vision and how the school had progressed in such a short time.
Janette says: “My ‘home’ for the time I was in Mombasa was with Jacob (the school founder and director), his wife Brenda and their two beautiful children. I was truly part of their family and had a wonderful time staying with them. I was almost converted to eating ugali! My 8 weeks flew by and I can’t wait to go back. On my last day the children sang a song which included the words ‘we will never, never forget you’. I will never, never forget them.”
