Beginning in November 2011, Flatirons entered into a partnership with Musana Community Development Organization in Iganga, Uganda. Musana is a multi-faceted organization that started as an orphanage and has now grown into a full-fledged community development organization. Currently, Musana has two primary and one secondary school, they work with community members by teaching trades and offering micro-lending projects, they operate a full-fledged medical clinic, and Musana runs a local café, managed and employed by Ugandans. The organization is focused in the direction of 100% sustainability, where all funding is locally generated and injected back into the community. Musana is providing education and a loving home for vulnerable children and changing a community for generations to come.
