In 2009, a German football fanatic and social worker (Alex Hombrink), a Ugandan/German couple of social/community workers (Sonja &Moses Lugoloobi) and a youth soccer coach (Patrick Sonko) met at the KAJUFA soccer camp in Masuliita.
The meeting was catalysed by a shared passion for football, and an exchange of cultures. The fruits of the meeting included the renaming of The Reds F.A to K.S. Sparta 09, and the birth of Watoto Wasoka Foundation. The gist of the meeting was a shared aspiration to groom youthful soccer talents to stardom with particular emphasis on vulnerable and slum kids and bridging the kids’ access to educational opportunities.
In 2011, we co-hosted our first ever soccer camp under the umbrella association Uganda Kids Soccer Support Scheme (U-KISSS) that was also chaired by Ibrahim Nsereko in Bombo.
In 2012, Sparta 09 was registered for the 2012 KCDFA fifth division league, qualifying for the 2013 fourth division league.
In May 2013, we organized our first Slums Derby in Kisenyi. It was this event that ushered in Rene Meyer to our ranks. In the same year, Francis assumed executive role of the Ugandan WATOTO WASOKA after founders Alex, Moses &Sonja had moved to Germany to set up WATOTO WASOKA German.
At the end of 2013, we organized our second soccer camp at Lords Meade – Jinja, from 28th December to 3rd January 2014.
In May 2014, we organized our second Slums Derby in Mulago, and later that year, we followed it up with the soccer camp in Wakiso.
In May 2015, we organized and hosted the third edition of the Slums Derby in Busega.
