Florence Namusissi, Musana artisan

"Namusisi," as she is known, is a lifetime student. She happily soaks in every bit of education that Musana offers: learning new skills, language, and health practices. She is well-loved by every artisan and is a natural encourager and fosters a deep spirit of community at Musana.

Namusisi is a single mother who left school at a young age. She is 50 years old and has five children that she supports. Even though she is HIV+, she remains an optimistic attitude always and helps others do the same. She works hard to make sure her children are given opportunities that she was not. After Musana, she wants to open a shop in town and create a stable lifestyle for herself and her children.
