I spend much of my time in nature, doing farming , building and construction work. and with animals, organic farming, permaculture and recycling.
I'm currently working with pigymies (batwa) (the indigenous Africans) who were chased from Bwindi forest by the ugandan government to promoted tourism( Gorilla tracking) This community is living a very terrible life. I have a big story to tell!! We need more help with fundraising, buy land for the community , building and construction of school for kids, long term teachers to teach in the community . I have a big dream for the Batwa community but i need Hands.
I'm also writting a proposal about Women empowerment and youth institutional projects. This is by way to empower women most especially single mothers such that they get ways to sastain themselves.
About youth institutional projects, we encourage youth with skills like capentry and joinery, building skills, painting and drawing to improve on their skills and teach others.
