Thank you!

Thank you for considering a donation to Watoto Read. All donations, large or small, are impactful and make a difference in the lives of refugee children.

Set up a Monthly Recurring Gift Online (by Paypal):

A gift as small as $10 per month would cover the $120 cost to educate a single refugee child per year. Refugees are a unique population. Due to the ongoing risk of political violence or persecution, the identities of refugees are fiercely protected. For this reason, unlike many other children advocacy groups, we cannot provide a photo or information about a specific refugee child to donors. Unfortunately, because these children are nameless and faceless, they are often forgotten but they are extremely vulnerable, and they desperately need your help.
