KIFA stands for KOLE INTELLECTUAL FORUM

For one year of working with GlobalGiving from May 2018; Kole Intellectual Forum has adopted the four key principles of GlobalGiving that speak about: Listen, Act, Learn, and Repeat, as a means of cycle of success for any given NGO; and as the year, 2019 comes to an end; the organization Kole Intellectual Forum (KIFA) has sent its staff for a simple survey to listen to what the community is saying about their successes, and failures in their program which they are undertaking to promote quality and sustainable Education at Angic Primary School, Kole District, Northern Uganda.

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. Kole Intellectual Forum in 2019/20 is engaging 12 boys in skill training, with the hope of empowering them with startup capital; that is why the community is asking from them the same issue for girls. For boys is linked to: https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=13794,

With that feedback given above, link to members of the Board’s decisions (KIFA). Kole Intellectual Forum intends, come 2020, to start up girls vocational skill training in both; tailoring and home economics under the GlobalGiving’s Kole Intellectual Forum project page link to; http://goto.gg/31562

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

Lunching of UWEZO's research work of 2018
Lunching of UWEZO's research work of 2018

After two years of formally registration of Kole Intellectual Forum with Kole District Local Government (from 2016 -2017); it had not been so easy for the promoters of the organization to increase the visibility of the organization at both local, national and international level; however, in 2018, that is when the organization started to engage into partners with a number of organizations leading to its visibility to both national and international level.

Firstly with GlobalGiving: when in March 2018, the organization went through the GlobalGiving Accelerator; and because of its commitment with GlobalGiving, the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum) today, has been awarded with four badges: Vetted, effective, top ranked, and site visit.  Although, the ranking fluctuates depending on how committed the organizations’ officials are engaging the organization to GlobalGiving principles; it is not surprising that today 3rd Dec, 2019, the organization is ranked No. 3 of all the projects of more than 5000 projects that GlobalGiving has on its website; the link is: http://goto.gg/31562

Secondly, within the same month and year – 2018; Twaweza East Africa was able to identify Kole Intellectual Forum among all the Nonprofit Organizations within Kole District and entered into agreement with it, as the Kole District partner’s organization. Twaweza East Africa assigned the organization the task of running up their program in the name of UWEZO (Research work); the task was successfully completed by Kole Intellectual Forum and other 31 organizations in different districts in Uganda. The photos above and below are those of the invited guests and District coordinators at Hotel Africanan, Kampala, Uganda, on the 19th Nov 2019; launching the research work that had been successfully completed of which Kole Intellectual Forum is a part of.

The organization is also in partnership with: Human Technical Development Training centre, that has enable the organization to put 11 children (out of school) in skill training; details about them is link to:    https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=137944

Way forward, the organization is trying its best to partner with a number of organizations as part of its campaign to meet its mission and vision lay down on the GlobalGiving project page: http://goto.gg/31562

Transforming the mindset of Community of Aumi to f
Transforming the mindset of Community of Aumi to f

Through counseling and empowering communities’ mindset, Kole Intellectual Forum is helping communities of Angic and Aumi of Angic public primary school and St. Benedictine Nursery and primary school respectively; to work through, their education problems or difficulties that has engulfed the region for decades; by empowering their mind set to embrace value of education through community creative capacity building.

The two communities, with the initiative of Kole Intellectual Forum; in the frequent meetings that is held after every two weeks; they have agreed to start up income generating projects that will be helping them to support the education system of their children.

For instance, with the support of community of Angic, Angic upper and lower cells; they have started up youth empowerment project, in the name of Youth Empowerment Project Angic – I; they have raised some fund, enough to start up youth welding workshop, and registered it with Bala sub-county, Kole district Northern Uganda; meanwhile those of Aumi community have chosen to support women project; they are also in the process of documentation.

Kole Intellectual Forum therefore is confident that, with your support (the donors, advocates, and well wishers; the mindset of these communities to value formal education will soon be transformed.

Quality begins from the tender age: Okwerodot
Quality begins from the tender age: Okwerodot

…because of your support, the visibility of Kole Intellectual Forum has gone from near to far in Kole District within the shortest possible time. The organization today, is able to outreach and advocate for quality and sustainable education in many places; especially, other than where the organization is working from - Angic public primary school – after deriving the data from the district Headquarter, National and local papers, and conducting baseline survey, the organization is moving in the hard to reach places in Kole District, Northern Uganda; that is, in schools, churches, burial places, campaigning for quality and sustainable education where there is need for such.

Because of that: the community that is being approached by Kole Intellectual Forum has started to adopt and maintain healthy behaviors in education; and those that have put their children in Nursery level as a result of the campaign; like in Okwerodot Early Childhood Community Development Center Nursery School, Acankado Young Star Nursery School, St. Benedictine Nursery and Primary School, all in Kole District; do feel that, the rightful organization that can award their children with the certificate of completion of top class in their schools; is none other than a representative from Kole Intellectual Forum; as you can see them from the pictures above and below when a representative of the organization awarding the certificate to the top class candidates.

Thank you GlobalGiving, our supporters, donors, and well wishers; our project page on GlobalGiving website still remains the same in case your feel like supporting us or to tell a friend about our campaign. The link is on: http://goto.gg/31562
