Step by step
After having discovered step by step the world of Africa, and particularly street children, Watoto Foundation has managed and of course with the help of many others as well, to develop a program that has resulted in a success story. The students are extremely motivated to complete their primary school and vocational training and to graduate successfully. The guarantee that after six months of training they will have a paid job is a huge motivation for them. With the start of the Kiboko Lodge in 2010 employment is guaranteed more than ever.
In 2003, the Watoto Foundation started with four children. In the course of the years this number increased. The maximum capacity of the center is 64 children. Meanwhile, many already graduated and the center has expanded.
At the center Child in the Sky in Makumira we built five classrooms, a community hall, three biogas plants, hen house, laundry room, kitchen, students and staff quarters and a cowshed. This would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors.
