Last year Burton Hathow linked with the Stanford Foundation for Orphans and Rural Development (SORD UGANDA). SORD UGANDA is a small not-for profit organization, founded by a group of former orphans to support and educate poorer children and orphans in rural Uganda. Together they set up Stanford School in 2010.

Stanford School is currently run on two sites – the first and larger at Kawampe and a second site recently opened at Amolotar. Nearly 450 children attend Stanford Primary School from nursery age to 14. Pupils are taught academic subjects in English, together with a broader curriculum including music, sport and vocational training. The school has its own land and grows crops and attempts to be as self-sufficient as possible.
It will be our aim to support the children of Stanford Primary through fundraising efforts across our school. Last term we kicked off this fundraising by purchasing and naming two goats for SORD. Please see Teddy and Lucky in the photo! Well done Freya and Eliza for having your names chosen by the pupils of Stamford Primary.
We will also be learning together. Our Year One and Two children are already collaborating to look at  differences and similarities in school buildings in our two countries.
