At the end of 2009, Flatirons entered into a partnership with Urban Mosaic, an Organization that works in slum communities in and around Mexico City. The Urban Mosaic team has worked with community leaders to develop initiatives aimed at effectively transforming life in the slums of Mexico City. While all these initiatives are aimed at the communities where they work, each initiative is being carefully evaluated and documented in order to develop templates that can be effectively used to transform slums around the world—currently, Urban Mosaic is piloting their transformational model in the coastal regions of Colombia.
