Watoto Child Care Ministries was formed out the local Watoto Church in 1994 by founder Gary Skinner due to war torn conditions in Uganda. "I was reminded of the verse in James 1:27 that says, 'Religion that God the Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the orphan and the widow in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world'." Watoto takes a holistic approach to helping orphaned children and helpless women in Uganda. Its purpose is to rescue individuals, raise each one to lead, and to rebuild their nation. The Watoto program takes care of the individual’s medical, educational, psychological, and spiritual needs. Since the forming of the Watoto Children's Choir, they have travelled worldwide to advocate for the children of Africa. On Thursday, June 18, they performed at the St. Daniel’s United Methodist Church in Chester, PA. These children were energetic singing uplifting music of hope. Their message of hope, if you are feeling fatherless, remember your true father in heaven.
