Six Girls out 20 reported to the office (KIFA)
Six Girls out 20 reported to the office (KIFA)

Despite, according to the survey conducted by Center for Global Development (2020), in 32 countries; among the 98 staff at 82 different NGOs and other organizations that provide education; half of which are based in Africa; and the rest concentrated across Asia, Latin America, and elsewhere; the report reveals that COVID-19 has put the lives of millions of girls, especially in developing countries at substantial risk of gender-based violence, early pregnancies, and dropping out once schools are re-opened.

This report prompted Kole Intellectual Forum; to seek for permission from Kole district COVID-19 task force, to call a meeting between their girls and the girls which was granted; to check on the situation of their girls out of the schools which were supposed to be engaged in home economics; but would not take off because of the effect of COVID-19 from March 15, 2020.

https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=143766

In the findings; out of 20 girls recruited for the program; before COVID-19, only 6 have reported to the office of Kole Intellectual Forum; the rest are at large; although we are still to establish facts about them; but it has been assumed to be an event which is related to the report from the Center for Global Development(2020).

Directors of Kole Intellectual Forum; encouraged the few who reported to their office to be patient and wait for their program that will take off soon when the lockdown is unlocked.

With the need to understand the eagerness of listening deeply to the situation of the had been engaging young potential boys of Kole Intellectual Forum, who had been undergoing skill training in welding under GlobalGiving project report, Children's potential: Positive Change, link at:

https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=137944

In june 24, 2020, the organization could not wait to see the delay project because of COVID-19 to empower these boys at Kole District not discuss; mainly to:

See that: these boys after completing their skill training at Human Technical Development Training Center, Lira, Northern Uganda in partnership with VSO; the organization, Kole Intellectual Forum, with the fund it is getting from GlobalGiving Crowd funding Platform; that, they make these boys to start-up a Welding workshop; but, unfortunately, because of lockdown arising from COVID-19; the organization cannot do otherwise; they have to wait until the situation is unlock.

However, with permission for Resident District Commissioner, Kole; Head of Kole District COVID-19 Task Force; the organization organized a brief meeting to see that, that they remain committed to their promises; and on the other hand, in that very meeting, instead, the organization that has modified its activities to address prevention of spread of COVID-19;  committed these youth to remain with them during this lockdown and help them to empower their communities with information about the scourge; detailed on Kole Intellectual Forum’s GlobalGiving project report link at: https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=149929

The organization: identifies the needs

From about No. 26,000 project and above to No.1 on GlobalGiving Platform is Kole Intellectual Forum

We are proud of GlobalGiving, our: Donors, Supporters, Communities and Well-wishers!

Thank you for using our organization as a material to serve the needy; we are because of YOU

Bravo…Bravo…Bravo!!!!!! For your support!!!!!!!

Learn little bit about the history of the organization, that:

Kole Intellectual Forum is a Community based Organization; that was formed by the indigenous children of Northern Uganda; after the end of civil that took their region close to about 30 years from 1971 to about 2005; broadly to contribute towards reconstruction of their region; and because of that, when the team of the organization came in touch of the platform of GlobalGiving; they explored it widely and broadly on how the system works that made them to believe that: the power of great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time and move the world to another level.

These made them to build confident in everything they have been doing from since 2015; although it had not been so easy for them to go through the GlobalGiving accelerator; by March, 2018 the organization managed to go through the accelerator; and since then, the organization has bounced from the tail of all the organizations on the platform of GlobalGiving to No.1 three times; in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

We are therefore confident that: with widely experience we have acquired from then; we will not only maintain our position of No.1 on the platform but we will use the four core values of GlobalGiving; that is, Listen, Act, Learn and Repeat to keep us effective and efficient to not to GlobalGiving platform, but to the communities we are serving.

We have listened and acted in many concerns of our community: from poor performance in education, to sustainable and potential education to then at present preventing spread of COVID-19 in Uganda.

The big dark cloud that is looming over us in the world today is COVID-19: everyone needs to be informed

INFORMATION IS POWER!

But, is it true that all information can give power to the informed? Or is it true that all the informers can give all information that can generate power to the informed?

The answer is yes and no. for one or two reasons:   

Indeed it is true that information is power; because, with the knowledge that you can acquire from a rightful source, it can make you to control your own destiny, career, health and other resources just to mention a few. Knowledge acquire from a rightful source can give you the power of decision making; what to do, what not to do, how to prevent and avoid problems, how to leave in peace and in harmony with one another, it is therefore right to say INFORMATION IS POWER!”

However, baseless information without profound source can give you misleading or misguided information; hence, as it is always said, information is power; in such situation such information is not in any case “POWER”

Kole Intellectual Forum, a Community Based Organization, operating at the post war area of Northern Uganda; with the aim of contributing towards of the rebuilding of the region; through action research, modern telecommunication system and entrepreneurship skills; is always outsourcing informed information, ideas, concepts, and ensures those that are relevant to the communities are disseminated to them for the purposes of development and rehabilitations.

For the case of the looming dark cloud around the war today – COVID-19; the organization has made several attempts to understand daily reports on the situation of virus from all the countries across the globe at: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/?utm_campaign=homeAdUOA?Si 

In the same way, the organization is also getting a daily updates from (CDC) Centers from Disease Control and Prevention of United States of America; on how to prevent and control the spread of the scourge.

With your approval (GlobalGiving Team): we intend to disseminate information about the symptoms and the Hand Hygiene Recommendations to our communities; detailed as follows:

KIFA stands for Kole Intellectual Forum

For a long time of lockdown globally, including the offices of Kole Intellectual Forum because of COVID-19; following directives of World Health Organization, implemented by the individual Government; for the case of Kole Intellectual Forum; was the Government of Uganda; the team of Kole Intellectual Forum could not come together face-face for about 3 months, to see what was going on within the organization despite the fact that, they used to hold meetings through teleconferencing; it was until June 10, 2020, when the quruantine to certain extent lfted by the Government of Uganda, that the founder members (3 out of 5) convened at the Headquarter at Te-Okole Village, Ogwanga Cuma parish, Aboke Sub-County, Kole District, Northern Uganda to view what had been done and what will be done has per the decisions of the members of the board as far as COVID-19 is concerned.

They verified all the past activities and mandated the project leader to implement the decisions of the Board members; but, these should be in line to need assessment; meaning that: everything that will be implemented by the project leader must first be in consultation to Kole District COVID-19 Task Force, approve by the members of Board and founder members.

Kole Intellectual Forum is therefore interested to serve the living members of its community; other than burying any member of its community as COVID-19 threaten the world and Kole district in particular. Kindly join them on GlobalGiving project page link at: http://goto.gg/31562
