Batwa men and women from Kirundo sub county have gained additional skills in craft making and wood curving.

Craft making involves making of baskets, trays, table mats while wood curving involves curving of gorilla masks respectively. Other artistic scripts are also made by Batwa.

Batwa men and women from the above sub county meet twice a week to practice on the above skills under the guidance of different trainers contracted by UOBDU

Though such skills are not yet highly competitive with the ready established markets and the newly gorilla tracking in Rushaga, it is UOBDU’s wish to have the Batwa economic welfare improved through these additional skills being provided.
