Watoto Wa Dunia is a grassroots organization that works with volunteers in local communities to find sustainable solutions to the problems facing impoverished children and communities. We are based in Portland, Oregon and have a field office in Nairobi, Kenya. The field office is supported by a dynamic and dedicated group of Kenyans known as the Kenya Advisory Council. We work hand-in-hand with the Advisory council, supporting the programs they develop.
To date, we have developed a Child Sponsorship Program for Kenyan children, a microenterprise program for poor women in the slums of Nairobi, and have begun constructing a home for street children, and a community center in Kibwezi district Kenya.
We have had successful volunteer and internship programs. Our volunteers and interns have worked both in the United States and in Kenya.
