  • What's In A Name?

    Watoto means children in Kiswahili, one of the dominant languages in East Africa, where Divinity - our Founder and CEO - lived and worked for four years as the director of a youth development non-profit she co-founded in 2008.


    During her time in East Africa, Divinity witnessed how a communal approach to childcare forges strong bonds within communities. Watotolly is creating the modern village drawing on the spirit of the “it takes a village to raise a child” philosophy.
