The Batwa Pygmies of Uganda are poor, they are homeless, they are looked down upon and discriminated against because of their diminutive size and different culture.
The Batwa Pygmies are a people native to Uganda and, specifically, to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. In 1992 the Bwindi Forest was made into a national park to protect the mountain gorillas that live there. Great for the gorillas, bad for the Batwa. This left them with no access to health care and drugs.
The project will provide health care and facilitation to the pygmies while at the same time education them on better health care practices. Through compassionate clinical care and education we can change the lives of these people
The project will provide health care and education to The Batwa and the local communities children ,women,young and old
