Glory to God in the highest,

 and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased

People of the Batwa

As Christmas is drawing closer, every one is making preparations for their families. the Batwa and other vulnerable families around village K have no plans for this day. It has been our tradition and even this Christmas we will be putting on measures for the Batwa to join the rest of the world in cerebrating the birth of Christ. The Batwa do not eat meat or rice throughout the year. As friends of Batwa Intl. we will buy meat, rice, matoke, soft drinks and at least some used clothing for each child and teenager. For all the Batwa families and children at Village K and the community around. We will take care of 70 families from at about $30 per family. Our total budget is $2100
Will you make this possible? Let’s trust God for provisions as we make this a memorable cerebration for our Batwa friends this Christmas!
God bless you all.
The greatest gift we can ever Give to the Batwa is a Christian education. The Batwa have very many needs but educating their children would empower them now and into the future. Many schools reject the Batwa and others  take them in but marginalize and discriminate against them. There are a number of other reasons which force the Batwa out of school, such as hunger, domestic violence, early marriages, rape, lack of scholastic materials, uniforms and sanitaries in girls. Our wishes are for a school that will address all these problems and ensure that the Batwa children stay in school and learn a skill or two by level seven. We are raising funds to build this school for them. Donations can be made for this project on our secure giving page or to Gloria direct.

Julian has been light, joy, and central point. She has been a pillar, a shoulder to lean on. All the children loved her, even in her elderly age she never lacked what to serve the little ones. They all looked up to her as a mother and father.
We are happy that by the time of her death, she was sleeping well and eating well. She had smiled and saw her grand children smiling, and above all, Julian knew Christ and she will be residing with angels in heaven. As friends of Batwa international we are determined to continue supporting these children and the entire community at Kasovu. Julian lived an awesome life and will dearly be missed by many.

H2H’s seed and hoe donation has enabled the people at Kamugyemanyi to plant and harvest food from their gardens. Such initiatives to encourage farming continues to feed the hungry and give them skill and purpose. In the future we can create a good storage facility to enable them to store seeds and keep repeating the planting cycle! 

We have been engaging the Batwa in their spiritual growth, learning of the word of God, teaching verses and how to pray and rely on prayer. Their faith has greatly grown. We hope that we will see total transformation with time. 

Batwa music performance and Batwa cultural preservation 
owe have a very well trained Batwa cultural performance group made up of over 50 members, and still growing, they present Batwa Folk lore, Batwa dance and Batwa plays and stories, we intend to grow this group, and also train the children, this a will be part of the Batwa cultural preservation center, where we want to put a Batwa museum and  botanical garden. 
First aid skills are very essential in very remote areas where medical services are very scarce. The people need to know how to manage patients until specialized treatment becomes available. We hope to extend these skills to the Batwa. The Batwa represent the highest rates of child mortality from minor injuries and accidents in the country. 
Land at Rwamwanja Village Uganda for the Batwa school. Raising $4200 to develop this land for a school.

News From Kenya

This was a training to making soap and shampoo. Learning new skills creates ways to earn income for the women of the community. Not only can they make money, but making their own products is less expensive than purchasing them. We are now raising $150 to purchase the raw materials to make soap so that we can continue making this kind of soap.

Sunday the 28 th I will be visiting another church in our neighbors County and on 19th December I will be in the last church to close the year.
