Kole Intellectual Forum: working with Community

Unlike other nonprofit organizations across the country or around the world, Community Based Organizations are those set organizations those are being understood by their team as those ones those have copied the activities of other CBOs those say that: they have a long story of providing social services and care to people of all ages and their families within their community to address community resource needs, promote health and behavior change, improve functional ability, and reduce social isolation

Because of that: time and again, Kole Intellectual Forum has always conducted a research around its community to find the missing gap and often take the lead to greater understanding of community contexts. All those they do are characterized by community building, community planning, direct action and mobilization, the promotion of community change, and, ultimately, changes within larger social systems and power structures along with localized ones.

Like for the case in the photos above and below: the team of the organization took the lead to mobilize their community to collect local resources for the repair of their borehole and sincerely the water source was put back to functionality

Expected store of Knowledge, ideas, & Institute
Expected store of Knowledge, ideas, & Institute

Undoubtedly, with an healthy beginning in new year, 2023; the vibrant team of Kole Intellectual Forum are determined and more optimistic to gather the world’s brightest minds and ideas from the - researchers, educators, neuroscientists, psychologists, economists, statisticians and innovators; with the hope of taking up concrete actions to close the inequality gap in education around the world particularly first within the area of their operations.

Given that: they are inspired with the intention to build new bridges between the worlds of research and practice to make education more responsive to the challenges of the current century, and more inclusive for the millions of children who are marginalized by today’s systems - a rear and unique innovative approaches they are practicing as they had done it previously throughtest piloted concept in the Institute of Home Economics. Fortunately, ideally, they intend to implement it in their building with a fully pledge Institution for the case - the store of new, unique, & innovative ideas 

Notwithstanding that: Kole Intellectual Forum was formed by the the group of academicians from a diverse academic disciplines, who have developed both practical and theoretical expertise in education by drawing on different experiences. In their own work, they have seen the power of education to themselves and they can now use it to change their own lives and those of others, transform communities, economies and societies, and build a better world locally here in Kole District and now as indicated by the sample drown from the support from the platform of GlobalGiving.

Although the ideas or innovation might not come from them directly, their council's unique strength lies in their ability to look for educational experts from multiple disciplines. This means, the council can look at problems from many different angles, from listening to learners and communities; and work together in teams that have different skills to bring out a clear output.

Preparing Today’s Youth for Tomorrow’s World

At the beginning of the new year 2023: the team of Kole Intellectual Forum reviewed their approaches and consolidated their stand point on the new and innovative skilling of youth with vigilant vigars in that: in this world of rapid change, young people need the right mixtures of skills to thrive. Access to information is increasing, and memorizing facts is equally important today than in the past. Although academic skills remain important, they need to be sufficient enough to foster thoughtful, productive, and engaging to the citizens. Young people everywhere need to develop a greater breadth of skills to evaluate and apply knowledge in ways that meet the new demands of our changing social and economic landscape. The team of Kole Intellectual Forum in their review meeting was constituted on the 10/01/2023.

They (the team of Kole Intellectual Forum) observed that: skills like communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and flexibility have always been important for work and life. But they are treating it a tool that is even more crucial for future generations; including a rapid advances in technology for transforming the world of work, and by 2030 they estimated that about 83 million jobs around the globe can go unfilled due to lack of skills if we fail to plan for today.

They want to be more connected than ever before, because they are aware that: there are complex global challenges such as climate change, abject poverty and health epidemics that are calling for leaders and citizens who are able to collaborate with diverse groups to solve problems. In these series of debates, they used it to spark a global dialogue and engaged in promoting an increase understanding of how to develop the skills and learning that all children need to be successful in their lives and livelihoods.
