Designed to share a story of courage from war-torn Uganda through the rescue and restoration of child-soldiers, Watoto’s Restore Tour: Child Soldier No More, has been greeted in the U.S. by enthusiastic overflow crowds. This free stage production chronicles the child-soldiers from the region of northern Uganda which has endured some of the worst atrocities known to man. The world-class production provides audiences the opportunity to meet the children, hear their stories, and share in their new found freedom, dignity and hope, as well as provide financial support. Set to the backdrop of vibrant music, dance, drama and multimedia this highly poignant live production is intended to illuminate the realities of what has taken place (video trailer at www.restoretour.com).

Watoto is a holistic care program that was initiated as a response to the overwhelming number of abandoned and vulnerable children and women in Uganda. The Watoto model involves physical care, medical intervention including HIV/AIDS treatment, education – formal and technical, trauma rehabilitation and spiritual discipleship. Watoto operates on three core strategies:
- Rescue abandoned and vulnerable babies, children and women
- Raise them up to become the next generation of African leaders
- Help them to rebuild the nation
