The project is about linking and communicating Culture and Arts of Indigenous Peoples(Abatwa) of Burundi through story telling. Those people are underrepresented and underprivileged at all levels of community with limited access to opportunities. Their culture and Art is neglected, ignored or misunderstood and tends to disappear. The project will train 50 Change Makers(Imboneza) from the same community on Media use towards a widespread linkage and awareness of their Culture and Arts. The project looks to achieve self-empowerment/esteem of Batwas and promote understanding between people.
