About Watoto Canada:
Founded in 1994, Watoto Canada (Watoto) supports disadvantaged children and adults in Africa to help them regain control of their lives and to realise their potential. Watoto currently has projects in Kampala and Gulu, Uganda, and Juba, South Sudan. The Watoto Model provides holistic care, including physical care, medical intervention including HIV/AIDS treatment, formal and vocational education, counselling, and moral and spiritual discipleship.
Watoto Villages are set up in clusters of nine houses, offering residents basic necessities. Watoto’s Baby Watoto program cares for abandoned babies and toddlers aged 0 to 2. When they are older and physically well, the babies move to a Watoto village, or are reunited with relatives. Watoto’s Living Hope program teaches women income-generating activities to allow them to become productive members of the community. Watoto reports that, since 2008, Living Hope has helped 3,000 women, and their 15,000 children.
Watoto Canada reports that it cares for almost 3,000 children. It also reports that 159 children have completed a Watoto program, becoming productive members of their communities.
