This year we are partnering with the Lindner Foundation, http://lindnerfug.org/, a family group based in Germany that supports the education of approximately 350 children from all over Uganda. They also have boarding for 50 children in Kampala. Twenty-four of these children now attend school at Stand Tall with the expectation that all 50 will be joining us next year. The first group is adjusting quickly and well to their new school, making new friends and participating in classroom activities.
We were fortunate to receive the director of Lindner Foundation in April. She came to visit with some colleagues from Germany and one of her scheduled stops was Stand Tall. After touring the school and discussing our ideas about education, we bid them goodbye with an open invitation to visit us again in the future.
