Founded in 2009, Watoto Wasoka is a youth-led sport for development organisation in Uganda. We use football as a vehicle for social change in the lives of slum children in Uganda. We seek to change lives, through structured football programmes, one game at a time, through creating purposeful opportunities for play and learning in a safe environment. We organise some of the biggest football events for youth in Uganda, East Africa (if not Africa), with our last Slums Derby attracting more than 2,000 kids, while the last Christmas Camp was attended by more than 2,700 boys and girls from all over Uganda. In 2019, our work with slum kids in Uganda was recognised at the FIFA Diversity Awards 2019 in Milan, Italy.
