For Relief of Uganda's Indigenous Tribes

Batwa children are hungry, many do not attend school, few have shoes. They live in huts made of trash with no water, no electricity, & no bed. The huts are not even large enough to stand in.

                                               Housing is an immediate need! 

                                              Plant Fruit is changing all of that .

The Batwa community at Kisoro Hill was first forced out of their forest home in the mid 1990's. Now they are in danger of being evicted from the land where they are illegally squatting.  Time is running out for this group of 203 Batwa. In November '23 our founder met with local officials and secured a reprieve for the next two years.  The community must have housing by that time, or they will be again without a place of their own.   Each home will be built by the Batwa with water catchment and a place to garden.

In Uganda you eat what you harvest. Without land Uganda's people starve.

​The Batwa are learning organic farming, They are learning to grow their own food. PLANT FRUIT is teach the 1,2,3 harvesting method: 

1. Eat, 2. Sell, 3. Plant

 

The Kisoro Sewing School, at Plant Fruit Center for Practical Arts  and our men's School of Carpentry and Carving provide training for the Batwa of Kisoro Hill. In January 2023 we began teaching brick making to create income from the sale of bricks. August 2023 : Women began making baskets (left).  February 2024 the Carpenters built a brick shed so brickmakers can work even in the rainy season.

April 15th the first students graduated from sewing school (right). Some have found jobs making clothing. Having a trade is a life changer!

Dresses and bags, along with hats and aprons are created on the treddle machines provided by Plant Fruit. Those items are now available for sale at the Entebbe Craft Market. 

Carpenters (left) are creating chairs and tables. Great skills that create income! They are crafting doors and shutters, chicken coops & other items of use for their community.
