Youth empowered with admission form for training
Youth empowered with admission form for training

Proudly, with your assistance and other donors, the organization: Kole Intellectual Forum, a Community Based Organization; is happy to report that: the organization is consistency focusing on the promotion of quality and sustainable education of the children of the common men or low income earners in the public primary schools of the post war area of Northern Uganda in a numbers of ways; specifically, at Angic public primary school (the school that had been leveled as the worst performing public school within the district, region and the entire country (Uganda)), according to Uganda Primary Leaving Examination’s results of 2015.

Among the approaches the organization is using are:

a) Providing scholarships to the very needy children; but bright children at schools; like, three are at St. Benedictine Nursery and Primary school, four with Angic primary school, one with Bright Light Senior Secondary School.

b) Making partnership with relevant organizations whose their goals are also meant to promote quality and sustainable education. For instance, Kole Intellectual Forum has entered into partnership with Human Technical Development Training Center, Lira, in Northern Uganda; and they are training 11 children in informal training (welding) on top of one child they had trained last year (2018). The one trained last year, is at present taken for industrial training with Agricultural Machinery Parts and Innovative, Research in Science, Engineering and Technology Metal Fabrication (AMISET), Lira, Northern Uganda; who is also an organization that Kole Intellectual Forum is in partnership with.

These children under training with the help of Kole Intellectual Forum and other development partners  are being prepared for job creation; the organization plans to give them startup capital and ensures that, they are supported to the full capacity.

c) Before they left for the informal training, the organization had empowered them with some skills on how to make sanitary pads. Plans are also underway to see that more skills are given to them after the training; like showing them on how to make liquid soap, petroleum jelly, and candle to bush their income.

Challenges

Although, the organization has got an opportunity to make partnership with other organizations; it is unfortunate that, these opportunities are not in favor of girls’ interest; and many of them that performed in Uganda primary leaving examination at Angic primary school, Kole District, Northern Uganda in 2017 and 2018 as a result of Kole Intellectual Forum’s interventions; are at home doing only domestic work.

Conclusion

Kole Intellectual Forum is therefore appealing to the donors, partners, and well wishers to join them in any form; so that, they can together, create a difference in the post conflict area of Northern Uganda.

PROGRESSIVE REPORT FOR KOLE INTELLECTUAL FORUM FOR MAY 2019

Description of the report

Although Kole Intellectual Forum is a Community-Led organization that was registered with Kole Local Government, Northern Uganda in 2016; broadly, to contribute towards post conflict reconstruction of Northern Uganda, through action research, modern telecommunication system, and entrepreneurship skills; after need assessment conducted by the organization in Kole district in 2016, the organizationwas prompted to focus on promoting  quality education that is sustainable within the area but today again the education of children in this area is under climatic threats; pilot projects were conducted at Apedi primary school in 2016 and in Angic in 2017/18; through a program developed in the name of Community Integration program, whereby: Community are being integrated to the schools and schools also to the community, as well as integrating these schools to each other in a number of activities.

To support this program, with the fund received from GlobalGiving and membership contributions; Kole Intellectual Forum provided these children with examination, as well as support to their other extra curriculum activities among others; including, teachers and parents motivation.

At the same time, community were also introduced to livelihood project in 2016; especially, in ginger growing that requires a lot of water; and at the end of it all, pupils of Apedi primary school broke a record of passing in Uganda Primary leaving Examination in 2016; the school became the best performing public primary school in Aboke Sub-County, the 5th public primary school in the district of Kole; as to compare to the position 58th out of 62 primary schools in Kole District in 2015; it was also ranked  3470 out of 6000 best primary schools in Uganda; the same applies to Angic Primary school in 2017/18; although we have failed to get the actual statistics.

Provision of pipe water at Apedi to the community at present is the community demand; including actual support to the needy children under climatic threats iis among other things members of Board of Kole Intellectual Forum resolved to in their December 2018’s meeting for the financial year 2019.

Challenges

Despite the fact that, the aim o the organization is to create a positive social impact to the community members of Angic and Apedi primary schools (part of Post Conflict area of Northern Uganda); by enabling the children to pass in Uganda Primary leaving Examination to the greatest extent; the organization also is still faced with a number of challenges, that include: a) inadequate fund to support the programs; b) minimum support from the school administrations to the organizational programs; c) failure to get the market for the products introduced to the community, although, the farming was done through, contract agreements; moreover not forget the climatic threats within the area that has made it impossible for the farmers of this area to plant crops in the first season (their main occupation) that enable them to support the education system of their children.

 

 

Way forward

Following the meeting and resolution arrived at by the members of Board of Kole Intellectual Forum in December 2018; the members resolved that, in order for the organization to realized full capacity to implement or address its being developing programs in an upper hand; the system should therefore prove to the other institutions (including school administrations) that, they are worth doing so, by: developing basic organizational policies, building up a fully set academic center of Excellency, listening to the community feedback, providing financial transparency, act positively to the community needs, attend GlobalGiving academies, explore GlobalGiving website, maintain its award of 2019 (vetted, effective and highly ranked) and making a positive follow up in project life cycle.

Action taken

Academic Centre of Excellency is about 90% on completion; staff are in place; major policies developed are already established (Human resource policy, financial policy, child protection policy, risk management policy among others); answered the community feedback, for instance demand for pipe water at Apedi community (the organization has dug up a deep well pending materials  needed to tap and distribute water to the community); advocate for cultural values, and give actual support to the selected needy children at school and out of schools within these areas (minimum 12 children).

Conclusion

After realizing that, the aim of Kole Intellectual Forum as a Community-Led organization is to contribute towards post conflict reconstruction of Northern Uganda; by promoting quality Education that is sustainable according to this project report; the organization is ensuring that, it works towards realizing the needed budget, continue to advocate for altitudinal change of the school administrations, parents, pupils and the entire community; through, their partly established academic center of excellency at Apedi, Aboke Sub-County, Kole District, Northern Uganda.

    Progress Report

    As the new Education calender year opens for 2019 in Uganda; particularly, Kole Intellectual Forum, a Community Led Organization that cannot do its work without consultating its community and evaluating its previous activities; this month Febrary 2019, the organization has embarked on what is called EVALUATION MEETINGs in most of the schools it is working at, to find out details about its Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats; and to fiind out from the community, the best way we can do to: improve on quality education of the children of common men in public schools, promote girl child education, re-organize education system in those areas, and to drive strategies together with them to see that those worst performing public schools improve.

    Kole Intellectual Forum is therefore very proud to recognize the effort and power of fund that many donors crowdfunded to their project page http://goto.gg/31562 with the help of GlobalGiving. This is making it possible for them to conduct these Meetings effectively; so far, they have been in Angic Primary school,; that had been the worst performing school in Kole district Northern Uganda; the community has grately transform; those who used not to like education in this area are now coming for school meeting and give their views; on what Kole Intellectual Forum calls better data, better decieions and beter world. Indeed this is the way Kole Intellectual Forum is driving this comunity. Another one is Aum 9, St Benedictine Nursary and Primary: the community had been among the very difficult community. But today, they have accepted to move with the program of Kole Intellectual Forum.

    Otherwise, allow me, on behalf of all crews of Kole Intellectual Forum to give a special thanks to: GlobalGiving, donors the supported us and those that are willing to support us, our advocates, and the community we are working for. Thank you once again.

    “Better Data

    Better decisions

    Better world” (Marr, B., 2017)

     

    Are the strongest quotes that Kole Intellectual Forum cherishes; and it is doing it, to the best of its skills to see that it implements it in all ways. Fortunately, with the help of GlobalGiving, contribution from some Donors, and other Development partners; including, the members of the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum), the institution has assumed that: without instituting a body that, where, ideas (data) can be generated, discussed, interpreted, diagnosed, and treated among the communities it is working for; especially, the post war community of Northern Uganda; their campaign to improve on quality education of the children of common men that because of government policy of privatizing education and because of the war that disintegrated community from their schools; are making these children in these schools to perform poorly; their struggles would not realize a better decisions that can make a better world.

    Hence, because of that:

    1. Kole Intellectual Forum has partly allocated some fund it generated from: the donors through GlobalGiving project http://goto.gg/31562; other partners in development and its members to construct Academic Centre of Excellence at Apach Parish, Aboke Sub County, Kole District, Northern Uganda. It is about 80% of completion as per the photo attached. When completed, it will be a place where better data will be generated, better decisions arrived, and strongest believe because of that we will transform our society, leading to better world.
    2. Having being led by data collected in the last three years ago (2016); and having found out that, education is a sector that was most affected by war and government policy on education; particularly, in Northern Uganda, with Girls doubled marginalized; Kole Intellectual Forum, therefore, concentrated our its activities on supporting mainly seventeen girls of Angic primary school, in Bala Sub County in Kole District, Kole district, Northern Uganda. In the history of the school, the 17 girls managed to complete primary seven successfully in 2018. The only challenge is that, because of the aftermath effect of war; not all their parents are able to take them to the next level of education.
    3. Advocacy on the patronage of education

    By November 2018, Kole intellectual Forum has launch a number of strategies to campaign for the patronage of education particularly in Kole district:

    i)                    Campaign in the churches
