To meet the environmental challenges of today and tomorrow according to Kole Intellectual Forum’s aim to empower out of school girl child to fight for their rights in Uganda; through, one of their course unit (Child Development) at Home Economics in their institute; the organization has intensively focused on the study of Environmental science of 11 teams of 400 staff of the Wageninen University (2019) that each focused on a practical, efficient and cost effective environmental outcome.

The area they (the teams of the University) executed and thoroughly studied by the team of Kole Intellectual Forum purposely to use the materials to empower their girl at the Institue, the study include: flora and fauna, soil, water, landscape and spatial planning, climate, forestry, recreation and governance, vegetation, land cover and land use, the use of geo information and remote sensing, and environmental risk assessment.

Although, the team of Kole Intellectual Forum intends to implement all of those ideas; it is unfortunate that all of them cannot be implemented at once; to begin with, the instute has started by exposing their to a number of those areas of concern; for instance, on Monday of the 3rd May 2021, the team of the Institue took the students to the Nusery bed of various spices of seedlings of trees for viewing and thereafter they intend to ask the stundents to do the same at the Institute and in their different places of lives as they would be fully prepare for future. That is, to be able to face the the environmental challenges.

The stundents on the other hand well prepared to do a lot within this 3rd term of their course May to August 2021; and, so far they have already hipped and planted about 500 hips of sweet potatoes and they are  planning to re-afforest the area that are near their institute.

Purposely, that is, the feeding for a purpose, that is being championed by Kole Intellectual Forum, is meant to empower the girls to enable them to:

  • understand effectively and efficiently at their Institute of Home Economics;
  • sharpen their minds and make them respond to incedents in real time;
  • prevent them from making mistakes;
  • open their mindsets to analyze available resources and identify training gaps; among others.

Given that: since September 2020 when the institute became operational, these girls have been full time students of the Institute and these assumptions numerated above, have undoubtedly not failed to prove itself worthwhile. 

We at Kole Intellectual  Forum are therefor very grateful to recognize the positive respond of our patrons on the platform of GlobalGiving that are supporting the mission of our organization.
