About us

Watoto Wasome is derived from the Kiswahili phrase meaning “Let the children read”. We are a non-profit organization that is closing the gap in the quality of literacy education of children in under-served communities by creating engaging, child-centered activities for children in Kenya. Our mission is to improve the literacy levels of children aged 3-10 years in children centers and schools through use of learner-centered approaches, thereby contributing to bridging the literacy gap in the quality of instruction and involvement received by children in these communities.
