Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Excellent foundation is supporting an ultra-poor people, the Batwa pygmies, through health, education, land and food security. The results have been nothing short of spectacular - a 120 bed hospital, a 280 student nursing school, three smaller schools with an enrollment of over 600 and numerous income generating projects. The Kellermann Foundation board diligently labors, without compensation, to achieve self-sufficiency and life in all its fullness for the Batwa and the surrounding tribal groups.

Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Batwa pygmies were evicted from the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in 1992 when it was made a World Heritage Site to protect the endangered mountain gorillas. The Batwa were given no compensation and became "conservation refugees". The Kellermann Foundation has helped support health care, education, cultural preservation and income generation for the Batwa and provides them hope for the future. It is fine organization with high integrity.

Review for Kellermann Foundation, Richardson, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Kellermann Foundation, though its support of hospitals, clinics, schools, women's centers, water/sanitation and income generation in southwestern Uganda has dramatically improved the lives of the Batwa pygmies and the surrounding tribal groups. It is a great joy to be involved with this organization. I recently returned from Uganda working with the projects supported by the Kellermann Foundation. The foundation's support of the 120 bed Bwindi Community Hospital has made it a top rated hospital in Uganda and a nursing school was recently opened to provide highly trained registered nurses. Over the last decade maternal mortality has been reduced 60% and malaria rates dropped by 90%. Over 125 homes have been built for the Batwa and their culture preserved. The Batwa pygmies have replaced their cycle of poverty with hope. The Kellermann Foundation makes a difference!
