Technical implementation of a project executed: Girls’ Food and food supplements

Kole Intellectual Forum has entered into the process of its Project implementation (or project execution) after the organization was directed by the board members to see that their team conduct a survey to a way that is most appropriate to provide an adequate food and food supplements for their girls at the institute of Home Economics. This directive was given to the team in a project reported to link at:

https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/edit-progress-report.html?project.projId=31562&progressReport.id=176213

After the team evaluating, deciding, visioning, and making a proper planning, they logically concluded with the approval from members of Board that: the organization should be going into poultry farming as one way of providing  for girls nutritious meal that cannot only empower them but can also keep them healthy

The project you can see above, is the construction of poultry unit going on at Kole Intellectual Forum Institute of Home Economics

In an attempt to respond to many countries proceed to inoculate their populations against COVID-19 that calls for an urgent need to vaccinate teachers in an increasingly pressing concern given that: the pandemic (COVID-19) has crippled the education systems across the world including Uganda since early days of 2020; Uganda under its ministry of education has directed all the teachers, instructors and lecturers country wide to ensure that they are vaccinated with the vaccine of COVID-19 as they (the government) plans to reopen the schools and Institutions that were closed and lockdown for the second time in June 2021 link at: 

https://www.globalpartnership.org/blog/vaccinating-teachers-crucial-returning-school

Given that: teachers, instructors and lecturers among others are the backbones of education systems and the key to the reaching goals regardless of the context and situation; within the COVID-19 crisis, and given the Ugandan Ministry of Education standing’s order that: as they (the government ) plans for reopening of the schools and institutions, all the teachers, instructors and lecturers, both within public and private schools are under instruction to see that, they (Teachers) should under all circumstances receive COVID-19 vaccine before the schools and Institutions are reopen; “failure to comply with the standing order, the government proclaims that, this will lead to a very serious penalty as you may not be allowed to teach anywhere in any school.

Kole Intellectual Forum, being an organization that respects the country's law and standing orders; the organization, through its team leaders have paraded part of their staff of the organization and those of its Institute of Home Economics that had not received the vaccine by Wednesday 18, September 2021 to be vaccinated so that when the government calls for the reopening of the schools and the institutions, they would be able to reopen their Institute of Home Economics with full capacities.

Thank you for everything your are doing for Kole Intellectual Forum

Team of Kole Intellectual Forum survey:  Food and Food supplements

Although Kole Intellectual Forum (KIFA) procures foodstuff from the farmers and other nutrient food from the market with also support from the parents (local contribution) that contribute foodstuff for their girls at their Institute of Home Economics ; the organization through their policy makers (the members of Board) have devoted the month of September, 2021 to their team to outsource all means that makes it possible to see that:

  1. They appeal to their supporters and the parents to assist them devise a means of stocking proper food and food supplements for their girls at the Institute. An appeal has already been of September 1, 2021 link at: https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/project-appeal/edit.html?projectAppeal.id=5637
  2. To conduct a survey to find a means of getting any food supplement that is owned by the organization. Poultry farming and sheep rearing were among the suggested areas b y the board with the expectation of being a means of providing food and food supplements to the girls. A survey was conducted by the team through the office of Kole District Veterinary Officer, District Agricultural Officer and other development partners in the relevant fields in Kole District.
  3. Since there is suspicion of famine assumed to be towards the end of this year 2021 and the beginning of 2021; stocking of food substances was called for with immediate effect. Partly, the organization has already stock the food stuff that can run the Institution for 2 terms.

We are grateful that: when we report today as of 15/9/2021; many people have already made some contribution towards our appeal and this can be found in full details on our project page on the platform link at: http://goto.gg/31562
