A leader tells a story of the intended institute
A leader tells a story of the intended institute

Project Leader explains the progressiveness of the project in the arena of social enterprise to the intended construction of the Institute of Home Economics in 2022 in Uganda. It has been, the project leader delivers that: under a series of debates, discussions, consultations, researches, internally and externally that: various members of Kole Intellectual Forum at all levels – bottom and top – have consented into developing a scheme of social enterprise as part of the progressive move of the organization that has led them into developing a plan of constructing an Institute of Home Economics in 2022 from the fund that is expected to come from the year end giving season of 2021; despite the fact that, the organization will still remain an effective nonprofit organization.

Through the scheme, the organization has chosen to be directed by the three main models of social enterprise; that is, opportunity employment, donate back, and transformative products or services

To strengthen the capacity of the organization on this ongoing progressive ideal ideas; having undergone a number of processes, the projected leader further debated that, the organization in October 1, 2021 has launched a big plan for the coming year 2022, to build an Institute of Home Economics that is expected to embrace all the above three main models of social enterprises mentioned above.

In this report, we, at Kole Intellectual Forum, are very hopeful that: this dream or vision is soon becoming true, since every month we are receiving some donations to the project a piece of land has already been acquired.

Beneficiaries of the GG donors' patronage
Beneficiaries of the GG donors' patronage

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).

A monthly recurring of an event is referred to as “mensiversary” as to compare to an annual recurring of an event that are referred to as “anniversary”

Time and again, although our organization, Kole Intellectual Forum, had been bouncing to Number 1 Superstar ranking on the platform of GlobalGiving ever since it went through the accelerator at the platform in 2018; the organization had never remained permanently on the same position for quite a long time as had been the case in the month of September, 2021, for one month; that is why the team of the organization is calling upon everybody to join them at their endeavors to reach the climax of joy to celebrate the 1st of its kind such event : the 1st mensiversary and hope to remain vigilant in this month of October, 2021 in defending it today and some months to come.

To the team of Kole Intellectual Forum, they are considering it to be a combination or an effort of a number of stakeholders; ranging from trust put on the platform of GlobalGiving to the willing and generous hearts of the donors to support the mission of Kole Intellectual Forum that has made it possible for the organization to be effective and most engaging organization on the platform that deserve an honour of such ranking: No. 1 Superstar Non-Profit Oganization on the GlobalGiving platform link at:

Youth seek legitimacy: a ball given to them
Youth seek legitimacy: a ball given to them

Youth seek for the organizational legitimacy

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.

Following-up: project leader, parents & girls

As the country (Uganda) waits for the presidential directives to the team of ministries of education, health and those of national taskforce of COVID-19; being led by the prime minister of the country; purposely, to design and develop a program that can be enabling reopening of the schools and institutions closed for the second time in June 2021; given that the country (Uganda) is noted by UNICEF that: that country since the beginning of the wide spread of COVID-19 in the early days of 2020; the country has been that one whose children have gone for more than 300 days out of school, while home internet connectivity which could have been used as an option is ranked the lowest on the planet with about only 0.3% level of connectivity as it is debated on the link at:

https://www.ugstandard.com/covid-19-uganda-among-the-only-5-countries-in-the-world-to-keep-schools-shut-throughout-the-pandemic-says-unicef-report/

With hope of expecting a good result from the team with approval from the president; Kole Intellectual Forum is down to it’s kneel to see that: their direct and indirect beneficiaries are made to understand the situation the country and the world over are at; at this material time as far as the situation of COVID-19 is concerned as well as building hope and trust to the organization. The project leader that met the parents and the girls of the organizational Institute of Home Economics assured them of their commitment and promised to reopen the institute as soon as the president of the country permits. Parents were advised to look after their children properly and on the other hand girls were also advised to take care of themselves
