Our family has supported Watoto Ministries for several years. We have a sponsor child and have donated towards their many projects. We love their philosophy and their motto. They believe in Rescuing, Raising and Rebuilding the next generation of Ugandan leaders. They provide children in need with new homes, schools and medical care; but more than only meeting physical needs Watoto gives these kids love, hope and a bright future.
Here's the details on this project from Dude ...
Project Gulu is a program about kids that were soldiers and Watoto rescued them, gave them a school, a family, a home. These kids had to do very nasty things, some of them might have had to kill their own family and friends but now some of those kids have a great life. They have everything that every other kid has.
To help raise money I am making necklaces with the names of rescued kids on them because I want everyone to know that these kids are real people. This is not fiction. I am also going to sell some of my toys and later this summer we are going to have some other kind of fundraiser. Please help me to help these kids get better and live a good life.
More than 20, 000 have been abducted and forced to serve as child soldiers in Uganda.
I am not forgotten, God knows my name.
