BENEFITING: Kellermann Foundation
The Batwa pygmies have been one of the most impoverished and isolated indigenous people groups in the world. Our partner Batwa Development Program focuses on poverty alleviation through practical programs designed in consultation with the Batwa, including health, education, land acquisition, home building, preservation of their culture, and spiritual outreach. Through our partner Bwindi Community Hospital, health care programs reach not only the Batwa but also thousands of other residents in the region. Our newest partner program, the Uganda Nursing School, Bwindi, will provide high quality nursing education with excellence and compassion.
