Staff take photos with cards for COVID-19 vaccine
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:
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
Although newly founded organizations are faced with the challenges of constructing and projecting an identity; these challenges are particularly great when young organizations are belonging to the novel category of organizations or an industry that has not yet established its legitimacy. Such organizations typically lack an attentive audience; and its members or promoters often do not have a shared understanding of what their new industry is or how they are meant to accomplish their objectives; from 2016 when the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum) formally registered and came in practice, that organization was in such dilemma; however, with support from GlobalGiving from August 2018, identity of direct and indirect beneficiaries has turned to be the opposite; instead of the organization identifying the beneficiaries; it is now the beneficiaries come to approach the team leaders of the organization for guidance and assistance.
For instances: of recent in September 2021, a group of youth approached the team leader of Kole Intellectual Forum; gave him their vision, mission and objectives to develop football club and requested the organization to give them a supporting hands. In respond to that: the project leader in consultation with the organizational members procured for them one unit of football as one way of youth empowerment project and advised them to start up the club and keep them (Kole Intellectual Forum) updated
This approach has come to be because these youth have built the legitimacy on the organization (Kole Intellectual Forum) because they are seeing what kole Intellectual Forum is doing to empower 10 girls at the Institute of Home Economics and 12 boys in welding fabrication under Youth Empowerment project Angic in bala Sub-County, Kole District, Northern Uganda.
Great Donors, GlobalGiving, your responsible has built the legitimacy of Kole Intellectual Forum.
