17 Girls retained at school; 2017

In this arena, Kole intellectual Forum: a Community- Led organization with forwarding thinking views, in its analytical book research and physical finding in Kole district, post district of Northern Uganda, form 2015 to date observed that: Girls' education is an issue for everyone. Improving it should be—and is—important for all of us. According to the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum), educating girls is important in an underserved and in an underutilized part of society like post war area of Northern Uganda, and this kind of investment will lead to a healthier and a wealthier world is some few days to come.

Because of that: the organization has joined the rest of the world to invest in Girl child education in Northern Uganda from 2016 and in 2018, it was incorporated among GlobalGiving’s Active Development Partners. In 2017 for instance, when the organization advocated for the girl’s child education at Angic public primary school, all the 17 girls that were found in primary seven managed to complete their primary education; the same applied to the girls of 2018 – they were 20 in numbers and 2019 also; they were also 20 in numbers.

According to the study, the findings reveal that: the factors hindering girl’s child not only at Angic public primary school, but across the globe, are hidden into: discrimination, poverty, emergencies and culture. Although, the girls just like the boys, they also have the same hopes and dreams in life. To show the magnitude of the problem, reference was made on the Figures from UNICEF (2018) that indicated that, about 32 million girls of primary school age and 29 million of lower secondary school age across the global are not getting an education; meanwhile at Angic public primary school; of the 17 and 20 girls that completed primary seven education about 70% have dropped out of school; some are married, others at home, while others their whereabouts cannot be established.

It is therefore an advocacy from Kole Intellectual forum to development partners, donors and well wishers that: there is need for us to IMPROVE on the SOCIOECONOMIC GROWTH of the world: because, the study potrays that, by educating women, there is a greater chance of escaping poverty, which will eventually, lead to a healthier and more productive lives, and also raises the standard of living for their children, families, and communities. These and many more are some of the valuable reasons why Kole Intellectual Forum is appealing to you to support them on their project on GlobalGiving link to: http://goto.gg/31562

Interview at St Benedictine Nursary and P/S
Interview at St Benedictine Nursary and P/S

From 2015; Kole Intellectual Forum has been conducting Action Research, that is to say, the organization has been engaging in a wide variety of evaluative, investigative, and analytical research methods; that is designed to diagnose problems or weaknesses—whether organizational, academic, or instructional—and to help educators develop practical solutions to address them quickly and efficiently in public primary schools of post war area of Northern Uganda; specifically, Angic public primary school.

But this alone could not bring everything requires in the the studies; Kole Intellectual Forum therefore in 2019, opted to incorporate one private primary school in the process for the purpose of comparison; so that, the organization can come up with the similarities and differences in those two types of similar but different managerial institutions. The school selected is St Benedictine Nursary and Primary school in Bala Sub-County, Kole District Northern Uganda.

In these schools (St Benedictine Nursary and Primary school and Angic public primary school: Kole Intellectual Forum has conducted a number of interviews, consultations, even giving support to this school using the fund the organization recieved from the platform of GlobalGiving.

The truth about the study is that: problem associated with education is very broad; and we hope by 2021 we shall have come up with a comprehensive report. Hence, organization is still calling for your support on its project page link to: http://goto.gg/31562

Dear Supporters,

Please, we are happy to let you know that: our organization, Kole Intellectual Forum, is searching for children’s potential in education to create positive change; since, the organization is a forward thinking organization, and an organization that believes that the power of great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, at anytime. The organization is continuously searching for pupil’s potential in education that can create positive change at Angic public primary school, in Kole District, Northern Uganda.

It is therefore not to any surprising that, the above youth, are the children the organization has identified, recruited and trained in skill training; and they are now potential engineers that are getting to start up their engineering workshop in Kole district in not later less than three months.  

These activities of identity, training and preparing them; has been because of Kole Intellectual Forum initiatives; supported with the generosity from various donors, well wishers and communities acting for the public good. Their networks of generosity has been so effective and it has grown our communities and created social impact in our society.

Let you also be informed that can be part of them by joining us onnKole Intellectual Forum’s project, connected on GlobalGiving website link to: http://goto.gg/31562

Dear Supporters, Donors, and Advocates,

It has come to our knowledge that: promoting quality and sustainable education in the public post war primary schools of Northern Uganda cannot be only limited to the classroom, advocating, sensitization, integration of community to schools, engaging children into innovative creative capacity building, respect to the school rules and regulations, and soon; but also, rather, to build confidence to them, and make them have some elements of self actualization, and make them appear sensible before international community. This is what Kole Intellectual Forum is calling the course of Transformation in Angic public primary school. This was done in 2017, 2018, and there is plan to do the same in 2020 by buying for these pupils school uniform, football uniform, Scouting uniform, netball uniform and soon.

In this report, Kole Intellectual Forum is appealing to its supporters to use a- tell- a- friend campaign approach or ask them to join them in this course to: invest and create a difference in the society of the post war area of Northern Uganda as sampled in photos above. The project is on the Globalgiving website link to: http://goto.gg/31562

Providing weekly Examinations
Providing weekly Examinations

Dear Friends,

Since 2016, when the organization - Kole Intellectual Forum - through its action research, discovered that: one of the weaknesses that are making the majority of the children of the common men to perform poorly in public primary schools in the post war area of Northern Uganda; is about inadequate tests and examinations, the organization has since then been providing tests and examinations to the schools that it had been working at; firstly, the organization started with Apedi public primary school in 2016 and the Angic public primary school in 2017 to date. In deed as a result of such interventsion, the performance of these children has drastically improved; especially Angic public primary school that the organization is still working at.

It is therefore always our intention always to see that we visit the school; we meet that children; parents and teachers.
