You’re enormously welcome to the Babishai Niwe Poetry Foundation website. There is an inrescribable beauty that arrives with taking risks, flapping your wings across unopened borders and designing new fashion for the poetry family.

This year, 2018, our fourth poetry festival will be held from 3-5 August in Mbale, and we will hold a spectacular poetry session at the fantastic Sipi Falls. Join us, won’t you?

In 2016, we pioneered poetry on the mountain, an excursion that lead this adventurous team on a six-hour trek across the foothills of Mt. Rwenzori. We pioneered the Toastmasters challenge; a competition between professional public speakers  and spoken word poets and Uganda’s love poet, Winnie Kavuma, won.

2017 was a year of unlimited poetry celebration. The #Babishai2017 poetry festival ran from 4-6 August in Eastern and Central Uganda , where we held the first ever [email protected] Forest. It was described as remarkable and magical by those that attended.
