Watoto Wasome is a non-profit social enterprise that creates engaging, child-centered
literacy activities for children in Kenya.

We harness the transformative potential of child-centred learning, along with our unique access to children in underserved communities. We proudly collaborate with passionate directors and the government to improve children’s literacy levels within the country. Our mission is fueled by the urgent need to bridge the alarming gap between children’s actual literacy attainment and the expected grade-level standards.

Our literacy content and transformative teaching methodology are currently making a profound impact in three centres located in Nairobi metropolitan area. Each week, our content reaches over 150 children, equipping them with essential literacy skills. Our approach extends beyond the classroom, as we diligently train, support, and closely monitor the teachers and volunteers involved to ensure an enduring child-centred learning experience. Through close follow-up and effective evaluation, remarkable improvements and positive outcomes of our dedicated efforts are seen.
