Watoto Boy Meets Sponsor

5 years ago, The Watoto Children’s Choir was travelling around Beaubier, SK in Canada and Donna Coker chose to sponsor Watoto Child, Michael Okello.

Donna had the rare opportunity of meeting Michael in person while he was travelling with Choir 53 in Canada.

“Meeting Michael was almost like a dream, but it really hit home. The impact of such a small commitment can truly make a difference in someone’s life. Sometimes when I tell someone I sponsor a child they say, “I wouldn’t sponsor a child because I don’t know where my money is going!” I can now respond, “I know! I saw a healthy, happy young boy with high expectations of a great future!” Says Donna. Read full story

We are grateful to all our sponsors and donors around the world who have made a difference in the lives of Watoto Children. To sponsor a child today, go to www.watoto.com/sponsorship.

Look close.. this is also known by the locals as “the sleeping giant”. Hmmm.. interesting.

And after being sleeping giants on the bus for half the day, we had to stop at a park for a break. Run around and play children; go.. go.. go..

OK this looks like something from “Kungfu panda” 🙂 Michael in action. Boys will be…

Choir 53 @ Kakabeka Falls, Ontario

Its known as the Niagara of the North, and plunges 40 metres over sheer cliffs and some of the oldest fossils in the world. Seeing sites like this is part of the choir’s journey across this beautiful country. From the natural beauty of British Columbia, breathtaking snow covered mountains of Canmore, now we get to see Kakabeka Falls… Just awesome.
