Project Leader shares inspiring vision: Community

With intention of building up a practical and fundamental team and students within the expected high quality standard of the human capital development that Kole Intellectual Forum is interested to develop within its community in the shortest possible time by 2022 has inspired its community; through this endeavor,  the organization has created solidity with the community; and the communities are inspired with what Kole Intellectual Forum on their children and this has made it possible for those Institutions that are doing similar things like what Kole Intellectual Forum are doing; from both near and far; either, calling the organization on telephone or calling them practically to go to them and share with them what the organization is doing very well on the platform of GlobalGiving or to physically go and share with them their vision respectively.

Many people within Uganda including Democratic Republic of Congo as well as Kenya are calling the team of Kole Intellectual Forum to understand how the organization has managed to go through the accelerator on the platform of GlobalGiving to that far of being ranked among the top most organizations around the world.

Locally in Uganda and within the district of Kole: the teams as well as their students are mainly call for to attend graduations of the vocation schools including Nursery schools within Kole District.

Messages of Home Economics shaping N. Uganda
Messages of Home Economics shaping N. Uganda

The campaigning of Kole Intellectual Forum to contribute towards the rebuilding of the post war region of Northern Uganda through Home Economics Program has started to yield its fruits within the designated areas before the proposed construction of the demonstration Institute of Home Economics in 2022; the communities that are listening to the campaign of Kole Intellectual Forum have started to build good homes either for themselves for their old ones (the elderly)

The promoters of the ongoing Institute of Home Economics (Kole Intellectual Forum) is at present in its six years of its vibrate action research, from 2015; investigating issues within education system from one point to the next; and, participating into the implementations of such findings while intervening according to the assumed recommendations

In 2015, the organization started with the issues thoose were related to the poor performance of the children of the ordinary men of the great region that were/are going to the public primary schools, link to the struggle to bring about quality education in these schools; followed by an attempt to improve on the children retentions in these schools too; eventually, when to certain extent, some quality and high level of retention were realized, greater number of children who qualified for the post primary education system again failed to move to the next level of education; this caused puzzle to the project promoters that radically concluded that: however much the world struggle individually or collectively to promote quality, retention and potential education, if they do not think of building up good human homes, homes those are viable, nothing viable would come from the development of human society.

Hence, amidst these puzzles, in relationship of these findings and recommendations that came through these several number of researches, the promoters were forced to brainstorm and formulate a program of Home Economics, a tool that is expected to cultivate to their students to the seeds of good and viable homes. That is why Kole Intellectual Forum through its pilot students at Institute of Home Economics, is interested to construct an Institute of Home Economics in 2022 with the aim of using it as a demonstration centre before rolling it down within and beyond the district of Kole.

Surprisingly, in not later than the endeavors to construct an Institute; quiet a number of people within the area have already started implementing this concept as seen in the photos above and below.

Project Leader: join meeting parents & students

Given the global threats (COVID-19) that led to locking down of many countries including schools almost in all countries; undoubtedly, we cannot deny the truth that, despite the fact that all higher Institutions and Universities in Uganda have been granted the permission to reopen by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Uganda on the November1, 2021 (Kaguta Museveni); tha:t we are still overwhelm with a number of fears of facts - COVID-19

The team leader – Kole Intellectual Forum – met the parents and the students of their Institute of Home Economics on the 6/11/2021 in an attempt to clear the doubts; and they both, parents and the students resolved that their Institute should be reopened on the 10/11/2021 at 10:00 am East African Time; but they advised the Administration of the Institute to watch out and ensure all Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) for COVID-19 to be carefully observed.

Parents also demanded for one way of owning the project and they decided to be part of the project by contributing 20kgs of beans, 30kgs of Maize and about $10 per child by semester (17 weeks) to help the organization cater for the welfare of their children and avoid on depending on donors 100% - they hope for the sustainability of the project since the leaders of Kole Intellectual Forum is hoping to train and employ their childrenunder their program of social enterprise.

With those in place, Kole Intellectual Forum is fearlessly at present in full preparation to welcome their students at their Institute of Home Economics on that date and ran the program effectively.

Thank you our donors; your support is our pride.

One person alone can't do much: Director
One person alone can't do much: Director

One person alone can’t change the world.

One person alone can’t change the world; but at the same time, many of them remain idealistic enough to join collective efforts that push us toward a better world. When you think about it, that making a collective efforts is one way of making a perfect partner for community-led nonprofits if at all it can build a strong sense of community (GlobalGiving, 2021). In other words it can be observed that: What nurtures a sense of community, creates positive social change, and offers fulfilling work for Community-led nonprofits!

"As a little young boy that grew from a poor background", Director Kole Intellectual Forum narrated his story that: he found it a little bit difficult to help himself and the community that used to surround him for more than four decades. When he first attained his first degree in Local Governance and Human Rights, he continued to say, he used to struggle with his only biological brothers and sisters to develop their home; unfortunately, nothing fairly work out according to their expectation, given that whatever they used to plan, they were being implemented informally; however, after acquiring a master degree in Sustainable Peace and Conflict Management, he discovered that: One person alone can’t change the world; but, it can come through a collection of efforts and from 2015, he started up a Community Based Organization in the name of Kole Intellectual Forum that has proved him and others that: the secret of development is hidden into the collective efforts; because, since then, Kole Intellectual Forum has advocated for quality education in public schools of Northern Uganda and it is working out, the organization has also called for retention of children in these schools ,and the truth about it, is that children were greatly retained at schools, and of recent, the organization explored into the potentiality of children out of schools and at the end of it all was that many children have been recruited and undergoing training at the Institute of Home Economic as well as being engaged in Youth empowerment Project Angic. All these have been possible because of collective efforts, according to the Director Kole Intellectual Forum. 

Today, the organization is calling and willing to be among the outstanding Community Based Organizations in Northern Uganda that would like to change the world through collective efforts; because with collective efforts,  the organization has moved from the 31 donors to about 1,061 donors in a period of less than 3  years; fom one Director to more than 5 directors; from one office Administrator to moe than 7 staff; from no member of Board to about 9 members; from one program to more than 3 programs and many more to come, Hence, the Director concluded that: the secret of changing the world is hidden in the hands of collective positive efforts.

In 2022, the organization has a big plan of constructing an Institute of Home Economics; its appeal is link at: Call for supporting KIFA's Big plan, 2022

Report on an appeal to procure food for girls

It was in August 2021 that: with the decision from the members of Board that, the project leader of Kole Intellectual Forum made an appeal to their supporters, and dedicated all the donations that would be coming in the month of September 2021 for procuring foodstuff  for their girls since they would be reporting to their Institute in November 2021 after the President of Uganda partly lifted the ban on the lockdown of school closure. He permitted reopening of the Institutions and Universities by November 2021

The appeal to procure food for girls was made on the platform of GlobalGiving in September, 2021

We are therefore grateful that: with the fund we received to the organization through the platform and in relationship to that in October 2021; the members of Board have directed the project implementers to start-up a poultry unit seen above andhand below and it is recommended to be used as part of food supplement to the girls meals; however, in the same way, the organization in October 1, 2021 has launched another appeal with a big plan to construct an Institute of Home Economics in 2022 link at:  Big Plan to construct an Institute, 2022, $100,000
