Visit Watoto

Visit Watoto

Both the Watoto and African experience are demonstrated most effectively when you become immersed in them. Since Watoto first started, teams from around the world have visited Africa to build homes and classrooms for the Watoto villages, along with various other Watoto facilities.

An Open Invitation
Pay a visit any time to the Watoto projects in Uganda or come alongside us on a missions trip, to help nurture and care for the babies and children in our care.

Individual Volunteer
Visit Watoto for any preferred length of time and experience first-hand what Watoto is all about.

Your visit will entail a guided tour of any one of the Watoto villages to see the children's homes, schools, Baby Watoto facilities and some of the Watoto sustainability projects.

You will  interact and spend time with the children, mothers, teachers and others at Watoto. For more details, please contact the Watoto country office closest to you.

For those with farming, mechanical and other practical skills, you are welcome to pitch in on various sustainability projects.

Artists, musicians, athletes, film-makers, photographers, social media gurus, we need all the help we can get — not only to spread the word about Watoto, but also to help shape the raw talent of our young people. 

For those who would like to reach out to people with the message of the gospel, we invite you to join our ministry and discipleship teams. Whatever your gift or interest, we would love you to come and see what’s happening on the ground.

Give and Receive
By giving your time and resources, we believe that you will be blessed too. The experience will leave you changed.
