empowering communities

to thrive with sustainable solutions

the

Challenge

“The focus of foreign assistance needs to shift from aid to enterprise, from poverty alleviation to wealth creation, from paternalism to partnerships, from handouts to investments, from seeing the poor as consumers or burdens to seeing them as creators and from encouraging dependency to integrating the poor into networks of productivity and exchange.” – Jonathan Lea

“Why Foreign Aid Is Harmful.” Jonathan Lea Network, 6 April 2020.

our

Solution

Our vision is to see rural communities in Uganda develop using sustainable solutions that give hope and dignity to the most vulnerable. Each of Musana’s initiatives play a role in building a resilient, self-sustaining community, free of dependency on foreign aid.

our

Work

We focus on social enterprises that promote education, health and economic development. Each social enterprise works independently but in support of each other, cycling the profits back into the community through education scholarships and  medical assistance.
