FOUNDATION WATOTOWAKENYA

Watoto wa Kenya was founded on August 14, 1990 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Its committee members were present at the International Women Conference (Nairobi, Kenya, 1985). Together with women groups and churches the foundation’s goals were determined.

OUR REASON WHY

Children, mostly girls, walking around carrying baskets on their head, selling fruits, fish and vegetables – a common sight, especially at the coast.
These girls’ parents are too poor to pay for their school expenses, so they end up working in the streets. This foundation wants to offer these children a better future by providing solid education.

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world", NELSON MANDELA

  • Providing solid education to children aged 4-15, being raised in the lower social classes.
