About

Watoto From The Nile wants to provide a healthy, delicious snack made from locally grown kale and continue to create and distribute socially conscious and thought provoking music.

Who is Watoto From The Nile?

Ranging from elementary to middle school, Watoto From The Nile is a young, thought provoking, inspirational, socially and culturally conscious music group. We have come to breathe life back into a destructive music culture that's on life support. Through our musical talents, we silence the notion of our youth being lost and uncontrollable. Our music is a direct reflection of the state of America and includes topics such as the woman-bashing lyrics of Lil Wayne, the untimely death of Trayvon Martin, a tribute to the Baltimore Ravens for winning the Super Bowl, and the promotion of illegal drugs in Hip Hop music. Check out some of our videos below:

Why Kale Chips?

To see how we make the chips and to get a full list of ingredients for each flavor, watch the video above

Beyond just making great music, we have been in the lab creating a tasty treat for the entire family! We have mastered the art of producing flavorful kale chips. We take fresh kale leaves, wash them thoroughly and then season them to perfection, all before placing them into a dehydrator to create the legendary chip taste. We guarantee flavor freshness and life-enhancing nutrition in every bite. Our home-made chips are packed with Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and a range of other vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. 

 Because we don’t fry or bake our healthy snack chips like makers of potato chips, our chips maintain a high level of their nutrients in the “chipping” process. You won’t miss your regular cooked chips after tasting our raw chips!

Flavors include: Barbecue, Curry, Jerk, Nile Hot, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Regular, and Sour Cream & Onion

Help Kale Man defend the world from the evil villain Molly!

Kale Revolution t-shirt

Here's an example of our custom-designed Kale Revolution t-shirt, which will be available in men and women sizes. If you pledge $75 or more, you will be one of the first to sport this healthy apparel! 

 Here's a sneak peak of our new music video "Kale Vs. Molly" that will be premiering very soon! Instead of promoting the consumption and distribution of illegal drugs, we want children and adults to enjoy the healthy benefits of eating kale! 

Risks and challenges

Our kale chip operation is growing at a rapid and unexpected rate. We just began the company a few months ago, and we are already in five stores in the state of Maryland. If we keep up this pace, we will have our products in stores across the U.S. by the end of the year! Well, this is where you come in.

Located on the right, you will find a list of amounts that you can pledge to help our dream come true. Our ultimate goal is to get at least $20,000 to help with renovating a building to set up our business, buying more advanced equipment, and hiring local people to learn the craft and help us to produce bigger quantities of chips. Your pledge will also help us establish better packaging to increase the shelf life of our raw snacks. Below is a list of specific items and services we need to manifest our dream:

■Industrial Kitchen Dehydrators = $9,000
■Commercial Grade Refrigerators = $2,400
■Commercial Stainless Steel Counter tops and Worktables = $2,000
■Promotional Material (Commercials, Press Releases, Advertisement) = $1,000
■Complete upgrade of electrical wiring = $4,000
■On top of that, your funds will also help us to continue to produce positive, family-oriented music to motivate and inspire people to change the socioeconomic conditions in their communities. = roughly $5,000

As you can see, we really need over $20,000, but we figured that would be a good place to at least start to make a dent in our costs.

Finally, our official spokesperson and protector of health, Kale Man, needs a cape so he can continue to fight unhealthy fats, disease, and tooth decay. If Superman has a cape then he deserves one too! With your help, we can change this world…one kale chip at a time!
