The 'Declan O'Toole' Social Centre in Watakau, Northern Uganda

Watakau Watakau is famed as the largest village in Uganda. There are about eleven thousand people living in the village. The village is one big cluster of small huts standing next to each other. Due to the large population clustered together, the village has serious problems of hygiene and sanitation. The young people in the village are prone to idleness and drunkenness and the level of poverty in that village is very high. The level of vulnerability in the village is always high. It is in this village that Fr. Declan O’Toole Social Centre has been opened.
