The Twa, aka the Batwa, are a pygmy people who were the oldest recorded inhabitants of the Great Lakes region of central Africa. They now live in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Thanks to the pottery they make and sell in Kigali shops, they are able to build big mud houses in many villages. This photo was taken in Rwanda by Eric Lafforgue
Vision of Destiny Elementary School in Kampala, Uganda is run by my friend Cari. It sits in the middle of the slums and offers Hope, Love and Peace to children of the poorest of the poor. They attend school for free and we often take in more children than we have sponsors for. We just can't help it. We feed them, clothe them, love and educate them. They are one of my greatest joys!
