Over the past 10 years, Musana’s programs have grown from our original 80 children to over 38,000 people that are directly accessing our education, health, and skill development services. On October 19 th , the community of Iganga gathered to celebrate all that has been accomplished and it was a spectacular day. Over 1,000 community members flooded the football field at Musana Vocational High School. Performances were done by Musana students, staff members, youth in Iganga, and local musicians- all sharing composed songs, poems, and speeches about the transformation that has taken place in their community. Additionally, Musana’s women and children shared powerful testimonies about how their lives have changed forever because of Musana. The entire full-time staff of 200+ people danced around the field, surrounding Haril Kazindra, Musana’s Co-founder and Director. The ownership they feel for Musana was evident as their faces gleamed with pride. Haril passionately shared how Musana started, the impact that has been made, and the exciting plans for the future replication of our bold development model in other districts of Uganda. The top government officials, district leaders, and Ugandan board members attended and congratulated Musana for the great work done. Also, in attendance was a team of longtime Musana supporters from the United States who came to witness the joyous occasion! October is a rainy season in Uganda and for most of the day, dark clouds circled the field and thunder was heard in the distance. We all sat praying that God would hold off the heavy downpour and sure enough, He did, giving us a simple reminder that Musana is in His hands!
