Purpose of the name
We all have a destiny, and sometimes it takes decades for that Destiny to be fulfilled. Each child represents Decades of Destiny.
Why was the foundation started?
As a single parent of my then 7 year old son who had a desire to play the keyboard, I was not financially able to enable him to complete his lessons, or find a program that could offer a scholarship or assistance.
Decades of Destiny Children Foundation started because while preparing to take my younger son to his guitar lesson, I remembered the many attempts made to have my eldest learn to play the keyboard. It made me wonder, how many parents may have been in the same position as myself, having the desire but not being able to afford music lesson for their children. If I can make a difference in at least one child’s life, is what prompted me to start a foundation, as a way of generating finance to make dreams a reality
God has placed many children in my life to care for on a daily basis and in so doing. I am able to see such potentials in their young lives. My desire is to be an advocate for children to believe in their gifts. "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6 NIV
We believe, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress” (James 1:27 NIV). With this belief, D2C will strive to aid those who are in need.
As children are growing, they often wish to pursue many dreams, but as they get older, things become much clearer and they find themselves questioning life. Why am I here? God created us for a purpose. When seeking that purpose, he equips us. Equipping comes through knowledge of him. So many times life‘s tragedies and disappointments cause us not to seek God for what he intended for us.
Our hope is that D2C Foundation will be a lighthouse for which God will use each person involvement, to enhance each child's vision purposely, and he will be glorified, in doing so.
