With critical analysis; search for knowledge; consultation and looking for the brighter future that the organization is expected to move the world with the idea of forwarding a better community in strong build-up; since 2015 to date, Kole Intellectual Forum through their professional leaders in Ugnada has been moving from one stage to another under the five typical stages of organizational development with the hope of building up a stronger organization; that is, through Formation stage, Early Period, Peak Period, Normalization Period, Peak Period, to Reevaluation stage.

In formation stage

The organization has moved on well because at the beginning, the organization was led by the individuals who had a vision for the organization; and since then, they left a significant imprint in 2015 to 2016 that made the organization go through formation phase; and concept of promoting quality education that is sustainable to the children of the ordinary people those that are performing poorly in public primary schools in Northern Uganda was identified as a component of reconstructing the region; and the war against it, was launched in July 22, 2016.

Early Period

Under like other organization whose early period goes from 3 to 5 years; for the case of Kole Intellectual Forum, the organization had finished a lot about this stage by handling a number of issues such as: conducting baseline surveys; storming in various areas of interventions; making widely consultations; and identifying education sector as that sector with the greatest problem in the region (Northern Uganda) that needed immediate intervention. 

Normalization Period

Other people referred to this stage as a norming or an adolescent stage; the promoters of Kole Intellectual Forum used this period to construct a number of organizational policies and procedures like: Human Resource policy; child protection policy; financial policy and procedures; five years strategic development plan; and many more policies and procedures that have made it possible for the organization to entered into peak period with little chaos.

Peak Period

This is the period that Kole Intellectual Forum is at, at the moment, the period the organization is performing and realizing a sense of maturity. In these 5 years of existence the organization is seeing its vision, mission and the objectives coming to be true. As thought of years back, the organization assumed to be among the global best development partners: sincerely, this has come to past in that, the organization is in LIFE partnership with GlobalGiving crowd funding platform, with TWAWEZA East Africa, UWEZO Uganda, Kole District Local Government of Uganda,The Apac Anti Corruption Coalition (TAACC) in Lango Sub-region among others; Missionary, the set goal was to coordinate action research with modern telecommunication system and entrepreneurship; the organization has used this mission, to explore into global knowledge that brought about those best development partners; coordinate with the community; as well as communicating to the donors at all the stages of organizational development and the construct mission is expected to lead the organization far beyond that. At the moment the organization is implementing a program that came from promoting quality, sustainable and potential education at the post conflict reconstruction of Northern Uganda; that is, helping 10 girls to fight rights and COVID-19 in Uganda under Home Economics. All the support liens on the concept.

Reevaluation

At the end of this year 2021, Kole Intellectual Forum is expected to reach its re-evaluation stage; whereby, it will exam its policies, procedures, and personnel as well as its system of operations, 5 strategic plan; and improve on its vision, mission and objectives.

Project Leader opening the New Term
Project Leader opening the New Term

The project leader, Kole Intellectual Forum, George Obua, recovering from the accident that occurred on him on the 18/12/2021; talking to their students at the opening of the new term on the 4/01/2021 and he had 4 tips that he gave them that he felt can help them to start the new term and New Year 2021 in an organized manner. He acknowledged that: these tips will help them feel prepared and ready to take on upcoming assignments at the Institute of Kole Intellectual Forum with confidence. 

  1. He argued them to set up a time for reflection in their life

That is, a moment that he felt that, every student should set aside to give her brain an opportunity to pause amidst the chaos, untangle and sort out her past activities, words and deeds through observations and experiences, considering multiple possible interpretations, and create meaning in their life and discard what is disadvantage in their life; taking into account that, this meaning should become learning process in their life, which can then inform their future mindsets and actions

2. to set up positive, realistic goals for the term

He further asserted that: every student should in line to the organizational mission, set up positive, realistic goals for the new term; this can be achieve when you set your personal goals and dedicate yourself to achieving these goals that can help you stay motivated and help you to achieve the results that you want and the best approach is to set them when one is feeling refreshed and re-energized at the starting of the new term.He advise the girls to write their goals down and stick on to them; and ensure they check on them every day, as a reminder of what they are aiming at.

3. Find a good study space

He further advised girls too, to create a designated area for their study where they can focus and limit distractions; especially their classroom where they can feel comfortable, alert and focused. They should also ensure they make their study space and dormitory very clean and tidy at the start of the term. With this, he believes success is the summation of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. Find your free access

4. Use school planners and calendars

One of the most important things to do to get organized he elaborated that; is about managing your time wisely. If you haven’t got one already, get a yearly planner and fill it out with the important dates for the year, he advised. As assignments and exam dates come in, keep your planner updated. This will give you a good visual of what you have to come up with and what you need to work around.

Once your planner is updated, make sure it is somewhere you will never fail to see it – especially, on the wall above your desk or near the front door of your dormitory room for constant reinforcement.

With this four tips he concluded, he hope the Institute will start the new term well, year 2021, mentor the girls and end the term successfully under their project link on GlobalGiving Crowd funding platform at: http://goto.gg/31562

10 sewing machines procured: Home Economics 2020
10 sewing machines procured: Home Economics 2020

We are grateful to report to you that: the year 2020 had been the year of double sword for Kole Intellectual Forum, a Community Based Organization working at the post Conflict area of Northern Uganda; at the beginning of the year (2020),  by GlobalGiving, the organization was awarded with 4 badges; that was, being: top ranked, effective, vetted and site visited on the GlobalGiving crowd fundraising platform; this made it possible to be visible on the site of donors; and it is true that: despite a number of challenges including the emerging pandemic of COVID-19; the organization was able to raise fund from January to December 2020.

Secondly, because of the emerging of COVID-19, although the organization had been promoting quality, sustainable and potential education; but because of that, the organization modified it activities to include fighting girl’s child rights and COVID-19

To pursue these: a program of Home Economics was designed, being implemented, and is expected to trained and employed 10 girls under the next organizational program of social enterprise; liquid soap are made to campaign for promotion of hygiene in the hospital, community and schools in Kole District; face masks too are also being made to prevent COVID-19; 10 sewing machines were also procured as instruments necessary to support the activities of Home Economics; school uniforms for students were procured; roles of clothes for making school uniforms to be sold under program of social enterprise in 2021 were too procured; some elders were supported during COVID-19; youth empowerment project for 12 boys were also implemented, 12 boys trained in welding fabrication and the start-up kids procured, ready to start up the job work any moment in 2021; and more importantly, the organization managed to raise about $25,000 in the last 12 months by December 2020, somethng that had not before since the organization went through GlobalGiving Accelerator.

Hence, the year 2020, had been a year of double sword; a year of successes for the organization because of the services the organization provided to its community; and a year of challenge because the organization was forced to deviate a bit from its focus area of promoting quality, sustainable and potential education; not forgetting that the greatest thing the organization had done in 2020 is to engage the 10 girls out of school in their Institute of Home Economics.

With this annual report of 2020; in 2021, the organization still remains committed to service its community on the project page on GlobalGiving link at: http://goto.gg/31562
