Resettlement of the Batwa and Construction of Houses

Kisoro Concern for Marginalised People Organisation having seen the struggle Rukeri Batwa were living in, the organisation requested for land from Kisoro District Local government, this land is part of Rugina Government Land and so far, we have resettled and constructed 37 houses in both Rukeri and Kabale villages respectively.

Rukeri and Kabale Batwa settlements have 40 households with a total population of 201 people as per our current statistics, composing of total females 111 of which 60 are young females 90 males of which 60 are young children. Its on this Rugina land where our community school Virunga Massif Community school is located and we have so far 2 classes and an office space.

We plan to construct a health unit in this place to help extend health services closer to the batwa and non batwa since there is no nearby government health facility, one has to walk 7 kilometers to access the nearest Nyarusiza Health Centre III which sometimes handles many clients some who come from the neighboring Muramba and Chahi Sub Counties and others come from as far as Rwanda since the sub county shares its border with Rwanda
