Aiding with Maize Flour and Beans
Aiding with Maize Flour and Beans

According to United Nations’ Policy Brief Report (May 2020), they noted that: COVID-19 pandemic is causing untold fear and suffering for older people across the world; due to the older persons vulnerability and neglect: to them (UN) in that finding, they further revealed that, some of the older people face additional vulnerabilities at this time; since, the spread of COVID-19 in care homes and institutions is taking a devastating toll on older people’s lives, with distressing reports indicating instances of neglect or mistreatment.

Whereby, older persons who are quarantined or locked down with family members or caregivers may also face higher risks of violence, abuse, and neglect. Older persons living in precarious conditions – such as refugee camps, informal settlements and prisons – are particularly at risk, due to overcrowded conditions, limited access to health services, water and sanitation facilities, as well as potential challenges accessing humanitarian support and assistance.

Furthermore, United Nations went on saying that, older persons are also often among the caregivers responding to the pandemic, increasing their risk of exposure to the virus. This is particularly true of older home-based carers, the vast majority of them women, who provide care for older persons, especially in contexts where health systems and long-term care provision are weak.

Following this reality of findings of United Nations in May 2020; Kole Intellectual Forum, a Community Based-Organization, in Northern Uganda, who is seeking information from far and near; by way of its usual facts findings; during the meeting of Girls’ project with the title “Empowering others to operate in Greatness” in the last paragraph; 

https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=152601

With the help of those community in that meeting, the team of Kole Intellectual Forum identified the older persons within Angic parish, Bala Sub-County, Kole District that needed immediate Humanitarian aid during this difficult time of COVID-19 in Uganda.

With these findings in place, Kole Intellectual Forum, on the July 30th, 2020, responded to their needs by providing them with some maize flour and some beans as indicated in those photos in this report.

Kindly join us as usual and save the lives of the older persons from vulnerability and neglect.

selected 20 Girls, their parents and KIFA: meeting

“The Girls project is in the waiting to take off soon after unlocking the world worldwide from COVID-19… empowering others to operate in greatness… Adopted ideas by Kole Intellectual Forum to empower 20 girls”

This is the greatest idea of Phyllis Newhouse: she is an entrepreneur, retired military senior non commissioned officer, mentor, Founder and CEO of Xtreme Solutions, Inc. and Founder of ShoulderUp. A pioneer in cybersecurity, she is the first woman to win an Ernst & Young (EY) Entrepreneur Of The Year® award in the technology category. Passionate about women-led businesses, in the learning by the team of Kole Intellectual Forum, is that: she is known to be that: that teaches aspiring entrepreneurs to recognize and capitalize on their leadership skills and empowers others to operate in greatness. These details was extracted from her website link at:  https://www.phyllisnewhouse.com/meetphyllis 

Inspire by her advocate is Kole Intellectual Forum; although the founder members of the organization had started to advocate for the same before; to explore the potential of the entire children not only girls; but, both boys and girls; however, with her knowledge (Phyllis Newhouse) that has been leant; on the meeting held on 24/07/2020, between the parents of the girls and the girls themselves, including Kole Intellectual Forum’s team, at Angic Upper Cell, Angic Parish, Bala Sub-County, Kole District, Northern Uganda;  under the organizational planned move, to engage these girls into Home Economics; the meeting supported the organization’s plan to encourage women movement to speak up, stand up and shoulder up issues, while  allowing them to see by themselves in a different context; on how to grow their influence, encouraging them to increase their economic power and create their own with powerful legacy through that training of Home Economics.

Although the plan to implement this project has been interrupted by the lockdown that emerged from COVID-19 worldwide; the selected 20 girls together with their parents, echoed the voices and support symbolized with their donations to the Kole Intellectual Forum’s project leader. To them (the community who donated), the money stands for the strengths they have given the organization to defeat any weakness or threat that may face it; and the eggs, are the symbols of opportunities that: that conceived ideas of empowering these girls is bless to hatch into wealth for generations & generations.

In that same meeting, when asked for, the community identified some few old aged individuals that are heavily heated by the effect of COVID-19 within the area; the team of Kole Intellectual Forum noted them and they promised to visit them in the coming weeks.

Dear Brethrens,

Permit me to say that: localization; investing time and resources in building and strengthening capacities and relationship in an original place is a worthwhile goal to capture international interest; in other words allow us to say, Kole Intellectual Forum, is a community-based organization, that is interested to examine the phenomenon exactly in place where it occurs; putting in mind that: working with smaller, community-based organizations like Kole Intellectual Forum allows you to develop wider outreach efforts with much fewer resources that can be welcome by all – locally or internationally.

We are therefore grateful to pronounce that: Kole Intellectual Forum is working like a machine that goes in front and backwards; at one time, it can produce a high quality processed product; if it moves back for the second time, it will remove and process the bye product that was left behind and so on and so on. And this is done with all the components and accessories that make up the machine and those that make it runs.

The truth is that: Kole Intellectual Forum as a machine; after identifying a problem in education sector; particularly, in public primary schools in Kole district, Northern Uganda; it first identified the needy school in Kole district – that was Angic primary school – and went on building the components and accessories those could make it possible for it to operate; the educational stakeholders; that included children, the teachers, parents, religious leaders, donors, GlobalGiving and the community in general. From 2016, the organization is moving in front and backwards engaging every other person that matters in its operation and collecting all the processed bye product and high quality product alike. This can be justified by the improvement in performance of children, high rate of enrolment and low rate of drop-outs, engagement of out of schools children to the exploration of a number of potential education; just among others. reference can be viewed in our project reports in the link given below.

In the meeting that was held on the 13/7/2020; at one of the community members’ home at Angic Upper Cell, Kole district, Northern Uganda; the title of the meeting was that COVID-19, Project, Hand Over, and parents meeting. This meeting reviewed what the organization is doing during this difficult time of COVID-19; examined all the projects the organization is engaged at; including the delayed ones because of COVID-19; the reactivated ones; especially, the boys’ skill training that was completed and the organization empowered them with welding and fabrication tool kits (tool with a mission); and the one for the girls for Home Economics.

The parents expressed their commitment to what Kole Intellectual Forum is doing; they thanked the donors for supporting them; and Kole Intellectual Forum also on the other hand embraced their commitments and promised that: together we will move the world to another level; leaving no stone unturned.

Although Kole Intellectual Forum is currently promoting hygiene in Uganda to avoid spread of COVID-19; the organization on the other hand, is remaining close to its area of focus; that is, promotion of quality, sustainable, and potential education in public primary schools in Uganda.

Since, everybody is aware of what is going on in the world regarding the closure of schools worldwide; Uganda is not an exceptional of that: and because of that, members of the Board of Kole Intellectual Forum, in line to their financial policy, have allocated some fund received from GloablGiving to address matters concerning prevention of COVID-19

However, when sales of hardware equipments in the hardware’s shops were opened in Uganda; the Members of Board have again directed the management of Kole Intellectual Forum to procured start-up tool kit (tools for a mission) for the boys who underwent skill training at Human Technical Development Training Center Lira (exploiting of their potential), Uganda. Under the organizational project program detailed at: https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=137944

The Tool kit has been handed over to the beneficiaries (12 boys) at the office of Kole Intellectual Forum; at Te-Okole village, Ogwangacuma parish, Aboke Sub-County, Kole District; on the 7/7/2020 at 12:30 pm They promised to start-up their workshop as soon as the lockdown is unlocked.
