Today is united nation’s International day of the World’s Indigenous people. This is an opportunity here at Cherie Wilshire foundation, to raise awareness of the needs of the population groups and promote action for advancing their rights since our mission is to transform lives of indigenous communities in Uganda especially in 6 districts of Kisoro, Kanungu, Masaka, Kalungu,Wakiso and Luweero in Uganda..While indigenous people make up around 5% of the global population, they account for 15% of the World’s extreme poor, and regularly appear at the bottom of human well-being index ratings.
