The HORD has begun its own orphanage Primary School in March 2010 in the rural Bussiwa village in kamuli district.  People live in small grass hatched houses, often large families in one room.  The people who live in these rural villages are very poor to the extent that they cannot even try to care for their families.  The children here have as much right to education as any child.Schools in Uganda are very different from those ones in developed countries.  There are very few government schools with nearly all schools being self funded by school fees.  That is the only way that the children will have any hope of a chance to get an education but the problem still remains that many of these children cannot afford the fees which can be anything from $8 per term upwards.
This school really will not last long & is not right or a healthy learning environment as we are now using the church structures as class rooms from Monday to Friday.  These children deserve to learn in a better school, one that has a clean solid floor, desks that sit 3 children, not 6 & space in the classrooms for these extra desks.  They need a roof that does not leak water on them like a shower whilst in class.  In order for this to happen we need to build our own concrete school & soon!  Our land size is so small so we cannot build out so we must build up!  We are desperate to build a school these children can be proud of & within which we have the facilities to give them a clean & safe place to come & learn.

BUILDING A NEW SCHOOL
We have looked at the finances involved with building An orphanage school on the space we have.  We need 9 classrooms, plus 2 dormitories, toilets etc…& an office as a minimum.  HORD would like them to also have a small room as a library as right now they have no books, or even text books of their own.  Music is something that is hugely important to children in Africa, dancing & singing is a normal part of their life & culture.  HORD have provided the children with new drums, xylophone & choir costumes but we would like to give them a music room so they can practice & be in a position to take their music out to the public & give performances.
Right now on our little space we need a three storey building.  The minimum cost for this is $60,000 which may seem a lot but if you compare it to the cost of schools in the developed world really is nothing for 600 children.
On this basis we have launched our Buy a Brick campaign.  Each brick costs just $1.00 Please help us save this great school.  We at HORD are committed to doing our absolute best to try & help them
If you can help us help them we would be so grateful.

Someone who has been sponsoring organization website got problems and she is seriously sick so she ended up not being able to pay the subscription. Our organization website has been redirected to: http://horduganda.weebly.com/ from www.horduganda.org but still the same content.
