RebeccaLake750Norwich Christian fundraises for Baby Watoto visit 

Rebecca Lake, a university student from Norwich, is planning to volunteer with the Baby Watoto project in Uganda this July, looking after abandoned babies, having been inspired by the Watato Children’s Choir when they visited Proclaimers church. 

Becca Lake (22) first heard about the work of Watoto when the Watoto Children’s Choir visited her home church, Proclaimers, a few years ago.  Since that time, she has been sponsoring a child in Uganda and always looks forward to receiving letters from her.
This summer Becca is hoping to meet her sponsored child when she travels to Kampala, Uganda to volunteer with Baby Watoto, as part of their Global team initiative.  Baby Watoto cares for abandoned babies and toddlers aged between 0 and 2, doing everything possible to give them the best start in life. 

Becca, who is from Norwich and studies at the University of Worcester, is paying for her flights and accommodation out of her own pocket, however she is required to raise a further £800 towards the Watoto charity. 

Becca said: “With this money I am able to carry out projects whilst over there. I have different activities in mind which I want to share helping boost and support the children's development. I also plan to do some sensory activities to support and encourage positive relationships and positive mental health, since a lot of these children have been rescued and have faced past traumas.”

She continued: “I have a passion for children's work, being a qualified early years practitioner. I wish to share my skills and knowledge with those who are less fortunate."

Rebecca would be very grateful for any contribution towards her target of raising £800 for the Baby Watoto Project in Uganda.  If you can donate please click here.
