    Voices of Tomorrow (VOT) was founded in 2012 by East African professionals who came together to achieve one goal: “Helping today’s children for a better tomorrow.” These professionals take pride in delivering comprehensive programming for childcare providers and families in King County’s diverse communities.

    VOT works closely with community partners to eliminate inequities in the early learning system which deeply affect our East African children’s growth, development, and academic performance. To achieve these outcomes, VOT is committed to increasing the quality in East African early childhood education programs through structuring programs, environmental assessment, and professional development for the childcare operators.

    Mission: We are inter-generational innovators who preserve language and culture by providing equitable services for our immigrant and refugee community.

    Vision: To continue to be a strong sustainable community that is successful in defining their own liberation, and own their narratives.

    Voices of Tomorrow (VOT) was founded in 2012 by East African professionals who came together to achieve one goal: “Helping today’s children for a better tomorrow.”  These professionals take pride in delivering comprehensive services for immigrant and refugee children, families, and in-home providers in King County.

    VOT works closely with community partners to eliminate inequities in the early learning systems, which deeply affect East African children’s growth, development, and academic performances. VOT promotes dual language programs by establishing first dual language (Somali-English) preschool program in Washington State. VOT also aligns systems to increase Early Childhood Education quality programs that supports East African children and community through cultural responsive tools, training’s, and professional development.  

    The number of East African children living in Washington State has been growing rapidly for the last two decades; yet, East African children are the most undercounted, underserved, and underprivileged children in Washington State.  We believe all children should grow to their full potential and East African children should be no different. We are working towards higher number of children entering kindergarten ready, higher graduation rate, and investing infrastructure to lower East African youth incarceration.  Voices of Tomorrow was founded to address these disparities.

    Voices of Tomorrow delivers comprehensive quality program that is responsive to the East African families, children and small business owners.
