Transforming community, uniform for children:KIFA

Kole Intellectual Forum (KIFA), a Community Based Organization situated in Northern Uganda that views vulnerable people as those that are targeted to fight for their own poverty reduction or problems; by using a Community-driven development (CDD) approach. In contrast, according to them, they treat the vulnerable people and their institutions as assets and partners in the development process. During their (Kole Intellectual Forum’s) 6 years of experience in service delivery to the vulnerable people; they witnessed that, when given clear rules of the game, access to information and appropriate support, vulnerable people can effectively organize themselves to provide goods and services that meet their immediate priorities.

Through this approach, as a community-led organization that is community driven; Kole Intellectual Forum, today and ever been engaging the community that they are working with, particularly those at Angic upper and Lower cell in Bala Sub-County, Kole District, Northern Uganda deeply and respectfully so that they can change their local beliefs and practices that may be enabling them cause harm to their children; and, this journey has led toward a better child protection and designing of Institute of Home Economics at Kole Intellectual Forum after quality and sustainable education has been realized at Angic public primary school where majority of their children are going.

A Rich heart is the seed of Development

Project Leader tells a story of Good Heart
Project Leader tells a story of Good Heart

At one time, it was once quite rightly quoted by – Roy T Bennett that: “You are not rich until you have a rich heart.” Having a big heart which is good enough for others and all is a virtue or a sensible seed for human development. People with good hearts are in the true sense of rich people! Because of the quality of persons they can bring them up!

Too near or too dear to this quotation; the project leader of Kole Intellectual Forum, pictured above, narrated his story to the readers elaborately, that:

“At Kole Intellectual Forum, they are making it a point to their organization to ensure they cultivate a seed of development (Good heart) among the Directors, staff, students and community that are in one way or another benefiting from the project directly or indirectly”, where everything that belongs to the project is handled so dearly with rich heart. For instances:

• Policy making is done by the members of Board at good faith (good heart) – base on five years organizational strategic plan

• Policies are implemented by the members of staff with due respect to their code of conduct

• Students have their rules and regulation well stipulated and supervise by students body and the staff management team

• Community are well of inform about what the project is doing

Conclusively from 2018, good heart has enriched Kole Intellectual Forum with trust from the donors, beneficiaries, community and GlobalGiving awarding them with the four badges of being top ranked, effective, effective, and site visited organization on their platform,
