Foundation Mamawatoto

Foundation Mamawatoto (Where MamaWatoto means "mother of children" in Swahili) is an independent, non-profit organization created in 2007 by a group of African women living in the Netherlands. Our dream is to live in a world where the poor and vulnerable are no longer marginalized nor abused, but are able to participate in the realization of lasting positive changes for themselves, and the communities they live in.
