Sewing machines for skilling girls
Sewing machines for skilling girls

Objectively, Kole Intellectual Forum; after listening, acting, learning a lot about ways of promoting quality and sustainable education in Uganda; specifically, at Angic primary school in Kole District Northern Uganda; the organization in the beginning of the year 2020, intends to repeat what it had done in 2019; but in the same and different ways to maintain sustainability.

In 2019, the organization promoted quality education in the public school mentioned above; and entered into partnership with Human Technical Development centre to trained 12 boys in welding with hope of giving them start-up capital when they finish the training in March 2020; details about it is at: https://www.GlobalGiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=137944

The organization on the other hand this year 2020; instead of engaging boys into skill training this year, it will deal with the girls those are part of the their intervention from 2017 at Angic primary school, Kole District. The sewing and over locking machines being assembled above, is part of plan undertaking by the organization to prepared for the recruitment of 20 girls in Home Economics in Febrary 2020; after receiving crowdfunding donations of $545 for November 2019 from its GlobalGiving’s project page link to: http://goto.gg/31562

This is because according to the organization, the finding indicates that  what can work well for the girls out of school in this area is to give them knowledge of Home Economics. In that home economic will engage them in:

• Cooking. Since food preparation was central to homemaking, cooking is one of the earliest disciplines in home economics. ...

• Child Development. ...

• Education and Community Awareness. ...

• Home Management and Design. ...

• Sewing and Textiles. ...

• Budgeting and Economics. ...

• Health and Hygiene.

Kindly join us in any form: as recurring on one time donor individual or as an institution; an advocate; or as a fundraiser. We will be grateful to see you taking part in making girls understand the world around.

FEEDBACK

Although communities appreciate the concept of promoting quality Education at Angic Primary school by KIFA; they are at the same time; requesting for more effort on the issue of sustainability of education in their area.

Unlike in science whereby the hidden facts to approach the world are exposed through laboratory research (Aziz, 2017); in social science, the same is exposed through either quality, quantity or action research among others (Mahesh and Neena, 2011).

Kole Intellectual Forum is one of the 32 nonprofit organizations representing 32 randomly selected districts out 134 districts in Uganda; those are participating in UWEZO’s program of Twaweza East Africa - who is also a nonprofit organization that works in 3 countries of East Africa: Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya, through its program UWEZO, conducting research on the learning process of children aged from 6 to 16 years; using the research question: Are our children learning? This same research question has been asked in Uganda for the last 9 year; and after disseminating the findings, the findings have generated a lot of debates and reactions among educational stakeholders throughout the country.

In the same way, in 2018, Kole Intellectual Forum on the behalf of its partner’s organization (Twaweza East Africa) conducted a social science quantity research in the same research question; although, the study took the former sometimes to  analyze and interpret information gathered; we at the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum) are grateful to reveal that by 4th to 6th December, 2019, our organizational District Coordinator was among those invited and attended training for launching of the results of the research conducted in the year 2018 at Kole district. The date of the luanch will be communicated to the educational stakeholders any time this Dec 2019.  

Given that: knowledge is power, Kole Intellectual is confident that: they will, through their partner's organization Twaweza East Africa research result; when luanch,  they will empower the communities of Kole district to address their education problems as well as creating a difference in their project on GlobalGiving page link to: http://goto,gg/31562
