The study seeks to achieve the following: (1) Highlight the perception of the Batwa on the right to education (2) Make a case for the importance of education in the interest of the Batwa (3) Make conclusions and recommendations that will enhance the right to education of the Batwa child.
Conclusions and recommendations reached would not only assist Uganda in fashioning out a model that will not seek to treat education as a means to economic end but as an end in itself. In addition, an all-encompassing model of education that will encourage quality education and training of the indigenous child to erase any form of disadvantage or inferiority already experienced by the indigenous child is proposed. Thus, the benefit of this research is not just to the Batwa but also other indigenous peoples’ in the world generally and Africa in particular
