The Children

Watoto Kicheko currently accommodates 25 children, most of them under the age of three. They are mixed by gender, denomination and ethnic background. They also have widely differing needs, some being able to handle everything life presents them with, and others who need extra help. Health in children, and particularly poor health, requires careful monitoring and specialist skills. Below, you will find certain details of some of our children, but other details are only available to sponsors, who will be issued with a password to access the full details about progress in development, health, education and the like.

If you would like to sponsor one of our children, please visit our sponsorship page!
