Title

 

Abstract

Batwa are a forest tribe who were evicted from Bwindi Forest when the Ugandan government gazetted it as a National Park. The tribe, as a result, became suddenly homeless. Youth unemployment among the Batwa is higher than the already unacceptable national average. Statistics show that unlike other parts, illiteracy & shortage of vocational skills are the main drivers of unemployment among Batwa youths. Our project proposes to recruit university student volunteers to spend internships training youths. Students in turn earn academic credit by volunteering. At project end, more than 200 student volunteers will have spent 3,000 hours training 1500 Batwa youths. Youths will use their new skills and knowledge of the national park to establish profitable tourism outfits to provide employment.
