The Batwa Tribe of Africa is among the poorest people in the world, suffering indignities that we can’t even imagine. Considered “sub-human” by their immediate neighbors, they have NO rights. Driven out of their forest homes and forced to work as indentured servants, they barely survive. . Due to their pygmy ancestry, they continue to suffer ethnic prejudice, discrimination, violence and are essentially victims of a slow process of genocide by starvation, and general exclusion from society.


The authentic artwork of the batwa will be used in the fabrication of t-shirts, hats, watches, backpacks, purses, bags and statues this will greatly preserve the batwa culture and and story telling will also be done
