Fida Country Coordinator Welongo Faizi explains how his path from working with refugees lead into advocating for children with disabilities in the Congo.
Burundian Jean Bosco tells his story. He is one of the few Batwas in Burundi to have a university degree.
Fida promotes the right of indigenous Batwa to a dignified life in Burundi with a local partner. For Batwas who lived in East Africa as hunter-gatherers, the change in forest management has triggered a cycle of misery.
