A journey begins with a step; is the courage and confident that Kole Intellectual Forum (KIFA) stands by; to lead its community and beyond into freedom; despite the fact that, we are all aware of the world’s undergoing serious temptation; that, no country around the world is not experiencing a Global Threat of a deadly epidemic corona virus, either indirectly or directly, according to the World Health Organization (COVID-19 report of 23/4/2020); but, Kole Intellectual Forum is saying, and strongly believing that: with the power of God Almighty entrusted to the Doctors, Nurses our leaders, this threat will soon come to pass; and we will continue with our endeavors as a Community Led Organization to lead our community into a journey of freedom.

During this Global recess or depression, when many offices and all sorts of businesses are locked down, including that of Kole Intellectual Forum; the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum) has selected some members of its staff and made them to work from home and they are using this opportunity to continue with the plan of the organization; among others, the organizational plan to instituting Home Economic project or Academy for training 20 girls out of school in Home Economics and Design.

Because of that: Kole Intellectual Forum during this recess acquired some stools that will be used for tailoring; and the organization still promise to continue to pursue whatever it can despite this difficulty on its usual link mentioned below.

In a video conference held on 15/04/2020 among the 5 executive staff of Kole Intellectual Forum from their different homes; the staff showed concern on what is happening all over the world about COVID-19 and promised to continue keeping their offices at Te-Okole Village, Ogwangacuma Parish, Aboke Sub-County, Kole District, Northern Uganda close.

However, with the deepest affection, as God fearing organization; the executive staff behalf of all crew of Kole Intellectual Forum, resolved to issue a word of prayer of concern to their supporters, beneficiaries, and to the entire world that reads that:

Almighty God, when you sent your beloved son Jesus Christ; under the sun; you gave him the power to heal all sorts of illness; from physical, mental, to spiritual ones. We, therefore, on behalf of all crew of Kole Intellectual Forum,  ask you today, our father Almighty, to allow your Holy Spirit to be present now on earth as had been during the time of your son Jesus Christ and make that spirit  touch the  people who need your loving touch during this deadly pandemic of COVID-19; and our prayer of concern is that: you let them feel your power of healing through the care of doctors and nurses.

We further pray that: you take away the fear, anxiety, and feelings of isolation from people receiving treatment or under quarantine. Give them a sense of purpose in pursuing health and protecting others from exposure to the disease. Protect their families and friends and bring peace to all who love them. 

When this threat is defeated; we promise to make the world a better place as we had been doing it before on our project page on GlobalGiving link at: http://goto.gg/31562

Community efforts to dig and clear the land
Community efforts to dig and clear the land

The community of Angic Upper and Lower Cells, Kole District, Northern Uganda has shown and made a rare effort to recognize (giving their practical feedback) to their service organization - Kole Intellectual Forum; despite this dificult time, that the World Health Organization (WHO's) has made a Declaration, that: coronavirus outbreak is a global health emergency - mainly, because they (WHO) fears that, the poorer countries might not be able to cope with an outbreak, if, nothing is done to prevent the virus from spreading to them; that is, according to BBC News reporting of February 6, 2020. 

In response to that: Uganda, including many other African countries laid down several measures, among others are to:  intensify health checks at airports, while others  have suspended flights to China, where the virus has been reported to have killed at least 563 people by Thursday,  before 6 Feb 2020; and, today, by this reporting time, the situation in Uganda is worst than before, in terms of preventive measures although death toll case has not yet been recorded. There is, a complete economic recess; because, during the night there is no movement; offices, it, being a Governmental or a Non Governmental once, are partly closed; public gathering in any form is totally forbidden, travelling is banned, and so on; making lives of those that depend on movement, public gathering and offices among others to be very difficult.

Given the situation above, the community of Angic Upper and Lower Cells, still endeavored to expressed their natural feelings to their serving organization (Kole Intellectual Forum) by building and maintaining its relationship with her (Kole Intellectual Forum); through their mobilizers, by ensuring that: they organized themselves in a fewer numbers, walked on foot, one after the others; and, they ensured they manually dug and cleaned the proposed site acquired by their organization with the support from GlobalGiving to institutionalize HOME ECONOMIC AND MANANGEMNT INTITUTE; with the hope of planting any meaningful crop in it; and, when the crop is harvested, it will be sold to support the cause of the organization; or, it will be used by the beneficiaries themselves. Taking note that: when constructed (the site), it will be used for the trainning of their girls with skills in Home Economic And Management Design.

This concern, has motivated the team of Kole Intellectual Forum who are at the moment out of their offices due to the directive of the Uganda’s President to ensure, most of the offices are closed; to start outsourcing for the revenue, to help them at least procure 3 laptop computers and accessories at the minimum cost of about $3000, that will enable them to continue working from their different homes.

This report therefore, serves the purpose of informing our supporters that: we understand the situation the entire world is moving at; at this difficult time; only our prayers to those that are affected; however, given the level of appreciation we are receiving from our beneficiaries; although, our offices are temporarily closed from now; we are, being prompted by their practical feedback to us; and, has made us to appeal to our heartfelt supporters; those that  might have got the strength to do so; though in hardship; to endeavor to borrow us a leaf from the little they might have saved; and donate to us whatever little they can afford; to invest in the cause of this project of Kole Intellectual Forum, link at: http://goto.gg/31562

With Sympathy; we pray for a speedy recovery for the nations that are affected.

After realising the inability for the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum) to do everything needed to start running the proposed program of Home Economics for 20 girls out of schools from Angic Upper and Lower Cells, both in bala Sub-County, Kole District, Northern; from the support the organization is getting from donors and its membership fees; the community from this area, having the organizational representative read to them the estimated budget for the proposed Home Economics program; at Kole District Council Hall on the the 20/03/2020; and he also showed them everything needed to be in place before start off the program; and they were as well informed that, without support from them, they would not be able to meet the cost of all that will be needed

To own the program, the community eronously, together with some of the selected 20 out of schools; accepted to cost share for the program; especially, they accepted to provide their children with food sustenances and other basic needs. 

Hence, by the end of the meeting; the community together with Kole Intellectual Forum; agreed to start running the program as soon as the issue about COVID -19 is handled.

KIFA openly accounts to GG traveler
KIFA openly accounts to GG traveler

Kole intellectual forum has developed a system called “Financial Transparency”, this is to make the organization to openly account for the resources it is receiving from any source to its beneficiaries, the donors, community and to the platform of GlobalGiving that is helping them to raise fund to support their mission. This is organizational attempt to display a desirable characteristic of financial reporting according to its code of ethics and financial policy and procedure to reveal an entity's underlying economy in a way that is readily understandable by those supporting the organization as well as those who are benefitting from the support. This has been line to the Kole Intellectual Forum’s Financial Policy and procedure and the idea the organization borrowed from Barth & Schipper (2008) and a sample of GlobalGiving’s financial management statements (GG Rewards' lession).

On the other hand, to Kole Intellectual Forum, "Financial transparency" means making a clear information to donors and beneficiaries as more accessible as possible; that is, making the organizational performance more “timely, meaningful and reliability disclosed without hiding anything.

This is the second time the organization is disclosing its financial position publicly without fear or favors; especially, the fund it begun to receive from the platform of GlobalGiving from 2018 to July 2019.

Firstly, when the GlobalGiving field traveler came to verify the organizational project site; and secondly, this time, when the organization is declaring the same publicly to the donors, beneficiaries, community and the unique individuals, and organizations or intend be a potential donor to the organization.

With this transparency, financially, we would always remain to serve our beneficiaries using the donations we receive from anywhere or from GlobalGiving platform link to our project page at: http://goto.gg/31562
