Murambo Batwa Center is located near Lake Bunyonyi .This gives the Batwa an opportunity to carry out fishing. They are naturally creative and innovative that they do fishing using the fishing baskets they make themselves out of papyrus.

These baskets can as well work as bulb holders thus being marketable to visitors. Most Batwa men engage in making fishing baskets as well as fishing for purposes of income generation to cater for their families. These baskets are very good and helpful; they can be got from all Batwa centers and are available at an affordable price.
