Visit Watoto

Visit Watoto

Both the Watoto and African experience are demonstrated most effectively when you become immersed in them.

Visiting Watoto
Pay a visit any time to the Watoto projects in Uganda. 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.

Whatever your gift or interest, we would love you to come and see what’s happening on the ground.

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. We welcome teams of all sizes to come and serve alongside our team through building & maintenance projects, ministry, medical or simply just to visit our Watoto projects to see how you can partner further with us.
