Pygmy women facing the conservation of nature
Updated: Aug 19
Through the initiative of POPOF, the pygmy women of Buyungule have made their association in view of learning different trades for their empowerment and no longer depend directly on the Kahuzi-Biéga National Park through poaching.
Thanks to the supervision and training of Odette Mulindwa, two occupations have priority, namely: mushroom cultivation and soap factory. Following this training, the pygmy women will be able to manufacture their products and sell them to the community for income.
Odette is the founder of this association of pygmy women, and it is thanks to her that POPOF smoothly cooperates with the pygmies.
