Dear our Benefactors,

Your patronage is highly recognized

“Your patronage (our benefactors) has penetrated deepest in our lives than any of the source of life that we had ever experienced before we became a direct beneficiaries of the project of Kole Intellectual Forum through your support”, one of the student’s photo above and singled out below alone was quoted to have narrated her feelings to one of the staff of Kole intellectual forum who recorded the story.

She further explained that: if, GlobalGiving did not know that their work alone (the fundraising platform that they have established) can move the world positively; from today onwards, you should all be convinced because of benefits we are getting from Kole Intellectual Forum. We do appreciate your effort to empower us (girls) at Kole Intellectual Forum; and, we request you to keep it up.

I can now see the reality”, what the project leader of Kole Intellectual Forum had been telling us before we became part of the project (the Institute Of Home Economics); that is, he used to tell us that: at their Home Economics Institute, we would apply the techniques we would learn from the class in our home daily future lives; as well as, caring for our households and becoming responsible for our homes; including, the society that we would be living at. 

Bravo, bravo, bravo!!! GlobalGiving, Donors on its platform, and Kole Intellectual Forum; your patronage is highly recognized by us (the set of girls - your beneficiaries).
