The Batwa are an indigenous minority group in Burundi and across central Africa. These people live in some of the very poorest communities in the region.
Conflict in Burundi and its neighbouring countries has also severely impacted the Batwa who are no longer able to move around the region in line with their established culture.
WER support to Batwa communities in Gitega has included the funding of better quality housing for families and financial support for the establishment and running of adult literacy classes. WER has also purchased a saw mill and provides overhead costs for a vocational training centre in the area.
