Batwa of Rwamahano

The Batwa of Rwamahano are comprised of over 100 people. Four of them can read and write, but only one can do so well. Their children go to school that is shared with Bakiga, the majority tribe.

They left their forest home, Echuya, generations ago. They were never settled on their own land until African International Christian Ministries (AICM) bought a small plot for them in the 1990s.

The fact that they weren’t chased from the forest, that they went out by themselves and much earlier than other Batwa groups in Uganda, makes them quite unique. But the differences don’t stop here. Echuya being a reserve, not a national park, they still have access to it. They also like to cultivate land more than other Batwa, and drinking is less of a problem here - see the story of Kanusu for more on this.

However, despite sporadic help by different organisations, companies and individuals, their situation remains dire. Their priority needs are:

- Land, seeds and tools. Some land has been bought for them by Bwindi Mgahinga Conservation Trust, CARE and Kazinga Tours but the plots are small and lead to arguments. They also need seeds. They currently borrow farming tools from the Bakiga.

- Iron sheets. It hurts the Batwa to see Bakiga living in good houses while many of theirs are still grass-thatched. Strong winds keep removing the grass and replacing it is a challenge; they can get arrested picking grass.

- School meals and scholastic materials. Food at school keeps children attending classes. After the monthly posho for porridge supplied by AICM is finished (in about two weeks) few pupils still go to school.

Batwa Today has been envisaged to help them finance their own development.

,I love the print but I was afraid of getting it dirty since I just toss my wallet in my bag and patent leather is pretty vulnerable to permanent stains. I ended up getting the leopard insolite and I love it! I'd say go for it if you love it! lv bags.
