“Thank you so much, Kole Intellectual Forum (KIFA) and donors on the platform of GlobalGiving!!! Tamali not her name, her name is being changed for security reason, was reported to have asserted. She continued to tell her story that: through the platform of GlobalGiving and Kole Intellectual Forum's project page, she can see the brightness of her future before she can finish her course of Home Economics at Kole Intellectual Forum this year 2021.

Tamali further narrated her story that: when she dropped out school in 2016, from primary five, she had no hope of going back to school neither of doing anything substantial simple because nobody had any plan to support and she was mainly committed to domestic activities at their home.

It was not until the year 2019 that one of the team member of Kole Intellectual Forum passed by our home conducting a survey to find out details about young girls that drop out of school from our village (Angic Upper and Lower Cell), she explained; that was when I had an opportunity to be registered for the course of Home Economics at Kole Intellectual Forum. Today I am here at Kole Intellectual Forum Institute of Hoe Economics where hopelessness is being replaced with hopefulness.

I am now a candidate of sweet dreams, a brighter future and a better way to go. For your continuous support (Donors), the sort is that:your donations have created a very big impact to our lives, we are 10 girls in number. Thank you once again.

Girls skill in Liquid soap making: support Prison
Girls skill in Liquid soap making: support Prison

According to the purpose of establishing a prison, the vast majority of inmates at prisons across the globe are expected to return to a society they coming from; when they are reformed after serving their due sentence; with the hope that, by the time they are reintegrating into their different respective society, they would embark on productive activities and avoid being a burden to all including somebody that could have participated in jailing him/her.

Unfortunately, the situation in most of these prisons across the globe is alarming; including the case in Uganda especially at this time when the world is faced with the pandemic of COVID-19 despite the fact that: every government is trying to improve on the standard of their inmates; particularly, providing the necessary facilities to fight against the pandemic still remains a big concern.

Kole Intellectual Forum with the resources it is getting from the platform of GlobalGiving; the organization is empowering the girls with the skill to make liquid soap that can support them in future when they would be selling it; at the same time, the organization is donating the liquid soap to vital places. one of the Uganda Prison in Kole District happened to be one of the beneficiaries. The support is intended to support the inmates of this prison to promote hygiene that is one of the pre-requisite of fighting aganist COVID-19.

The team of Kole Intellectual Forum appreciates the efforts of their supporters and promise to always inform them of what is being used with their funds or donors.

Support the inmates in Kole District, reform the sentenced, and reintegrate them to the society when they are healthy

Repairing & Building safeguards for the borehole
Repairing & Building safeguards for the borehole

In love for its community, Kole Intellectual Forum is working hand in hand with the community at Aboke Town Council, Kole District, Northern Uganda to see that, the project it is undertaking does not only benefit the community indirectly, but also on the other hand benefit them directly.

Much as the organization is empowering young girls and boys to fight for their rights and COVID-19 in Uganda; the organization is also well aware that: these activities are done where community are surrounding, hence there is need to have good relationship with the community and where necessary, the organization and its beneficiaries should share certain things with the community that benefit everybody within the community.

One important thing the students of the organization are sharing with the community is the borehole (clean water access). In several occasion the management of this water source committee has failed to deliver as expected to the community; to support them and build their capacity, the organization staff have decided to work with them together and where necessary provide them with financial support to help the maintain and improve in the work.

A campaign being promoted by Kole Intellectual Forum in Kole District, Northern Uganda

As the world struggles to cope with a new disease, one of the most effective tools to prevent its spread is also one of the most basic. Hand hygiene has never been more critical, not only to combat COVID-19, but to prevent a range of other infections. Yet, nearly six months since the onset of the pandemic, the most vulnerable communities and public places around the world continue to lack access to basic hand hygiene.

“According to our latest data got from World Health Organization states that: the majority of people in the least developed countries are at immediate risk of COVID-19 infection due to a lack of hand hygiene facilities. In the 60 highest-risk countries, the report says, 2 out of 3 people – 1 billion people in total – lack basic hand washing facilities with soap and water at home of which about half are children.

In the same report, it is also noted that: “All too often, schools, clinics, hospitals and other public spaces also lack hand hygiene facilities, putting children, teachers, patients and health workers at risk. Globally, 2 in 5 health care facilities do not have hand hygiene at points of care.

In relation to this revelation: Kole Intellectual Forum, that is a fact finding Community Based Organization; although with inadequate resources to procure and support all that it takes to promote Hygiene in Kole District Northern Uganda; the organization has identified public places (Public offices) and Health Centers and it has started intervening in them by providing to them liquid soap with expectation of saving lives of many people who come to them from COVID-19; by donating to them liquid soap, team of the organization are informing the beneficiaries to use the liquid soap for cleaning the health Centers, public offices and use part of it for washing hands since most of them have hand-wash facilities.

After Kole Intellectual Forum through their team of promoters learning that: trust is the foundation for building strong teams, creating a positive work culture, and producing results at their organizational workplace;  and having understood that, the cost of not having trust in the workplace or a culture of trust in workplace can delay organizational development; because of that: the team of promoters assumed that, if they put in place trust, the community of the organization will start to take ownership of their responsibilities, help one another out, speak highly of one another, communicate more often, and tend to be more productive. Eight carefully developed and analyzed core values to build trust in the organization were put in place, distributed, discussed and up dated with the community of the organization since the establishment of the organization and these include:

  1. Listen more than you speak. ...
  2. Solicit and act on feedback. ...
  3. Show appreciation to each other every day. ...
  4. Empower your team by trusting them first. ...
  5. Encourage coaching. ...
  6. Practice consistency. ...
  7. Focus on nonverbal communication and soft skills. ...
  8. Create an inclusive culture.

Besides that: the organization has also equated transparency; respect for everyone; team work;caring for one another; and building moral trust as an additional organizational core values that organizational team are mandatorily have to observe.

Trust is fundamental - it is a key to success. Kole Intellectual Forum is enforcing it on its project page link at: http://goto.gg/31562
