89% of pygmy children are illiterate! The DRC’s government doesn’t offer any opportunities for their indigenous people…”pygmies.”

The Pygmies of central Africa are traditionally hunter-gatherers living in the rainforests throughout central Africa. They live by hunting, fishing, gathering honey, wild yams, berries and other plants. For them, the forest is their spiritual and physical home and provides for their needs.

The conflict in the DRC has been especially brutal for pygmies, who have suffered discrimination, killings, rape, and allegedly been the victims of cannibalism.

We need to protect them and fight the lack of schooling among pygmy children.
