Watoto is the Swahili word for 'children'
“When I see myself now, it makes me feel proud of myself and happy. I have changed a lot and I can do something for myself. I see a leader in me. I see a hard-working woman in me, and I have a purpose in life, to be a mother for the nation.” This is the testimony of Vivian, a single mother from Uganda. Vivian sews and makes wonderful handicraft with the support of Watoto’s Neighbourhood Program.
The discussion with Watoto today is fruitful. We discussed how we could support mothers like Vivian to succeed and end the cycle of poverty. I am excited about the partnership and look forward to meeting the staff members in Uganda and Toronto offices.
