About Friends of Batwa International
Friends of Batwa International is a not-for-profit
organization that was established to aid and empower
the Batwa people and other vulnerable groups in the
betterment of their lives. The Batwa are responsible
for overseeing and running various projects including
income-generating activities. This allows the Batwa
to undergo a transformation process from a highly
dependent lifestyle, to one of self-reliance, prosperity,
and social integration. We bridge the gap between the Batwa
and host tribes so that they can finally be appreciated as
sentient human beings and live together without any form
of discrimination. This would include having access to land,
boosting household incomes, access to health care, sanitation
, hygiene, education and spiritual needs.
