Batwa Project


This project is helping Batwa Pygmy communities develop their own lands and integrate into society. For hundreds of years the Batwa people lived as hunters and gatherers amongst the mountain gorillas that inhabit the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest of southwestern Uganda. To protect about 450 endangered gorillas, over 10,000 indigenous Batwa were evicted from lands they had occupied for centuries and the only way of life they knew. Now conservation refugees living on the edges of the forest, they are considered amongst the poorest humans on earth.
