If there’s ample time afterwards, you may choose to visit the Batwa pygmy community living nearby and learn more about their way of life and how they lived as hunters and gathers in the Bwindi Forest or you can visit the Ride for a woman project in Buhoma, which is charitable organization that exists to support local women struggling at home with issues associated with HIV, domestic violence and poverty. The women learn to pedal sew, weave baskets, dance, sing and drum; learning new skills, thus making a living and making it possible for their children to gain an education. (B,L,D)
