The Batwa are a Pygmy Tribe that used to live in the forests along Uganda's western border. They are no longer allowed in the forests and are seriously marginalized, lacking in skills and education to make their way in mainstream society.Children need incentives to attend school.
Under the supervision of an extension worker AICM will provide lunch every day for all school children at two Batwa villages. It will fund two teachers and will fund training for at least one more teacher.
The Batwa Pygmies are integrating very slowly. Only when their children benefit from education will they be fully accepted.
