UN's Committee on the Rights of the Child recommends government action to improve living conditions for Batwa children in Uganda

A shadow report was submitted to the UN's Committee on the Rights of the Child by FPP and UOBDU (United Organisation for Batwa Development in Uganda) which outlined the deplorable situation of Batwa children in Uganda. As a result, the Committee expressed its concern at the situation of Batwa children, in particular with regard to their limited access to basic social services, including health care and education, and the violation of their rights to survival and development, to enjoy their own culture and to be protected from discrimination.
