At LIDEISA, we know there can’t be creation of new value and reconciliation of conflicts and dilemmas without taking responsibility which makes it our third transformative skill that we give to our learners.
Dealing with innovation, change, diversity and uncertainty requires individuals to think for themselves and work with others. Equally, creativity and problem-solving require the capacity to consider the future consequences of one’s actions, to evaluate risk and return, and to accept accountability for the products of one’s work.
This needs a sense of responsibility, and a moral and intellectual maturity, with which a person can reflect upon and evaluate his or her actions in light of his or her experience(s), and personal and societal goal(s), what they have been taught and told, and what is right or wrong.
At LIDEISA, we believe that acting ethically implies asking questions related to norms, values, meanings and limits, such as; what should I do? Was I right to do that? Where are the limits? Knowing the consequences of what I did, should I have done it?
Central to this skill is the concept of self-regulation, which entails self-control, self-efficacy, responsibility, problem-solving and adaptability. LIDEISA exists to inculcate skills of developing a sense of responsibility among our learners.
A combination of all the three community transformational skills taught to learners, we are very convinced that they will have ability to take critical stance when deciding, choosing and acting through stepping back from what is known or assumed and looking at situations from other, different perspectives.
With cognitive skills, such as analytical or critical thinking, to foresee what may be needed in the future or how actions taken today might have consequences for future. LIDEISA indeed, believes that both reflection and anticipation are signs of responsible actions thus our unique lessons that teaches learners steps to mobilize knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values through a process of reflection, anticipation and action in order to develop the interconnected skills needed to engage with todays’ new world.
Headquartered in Uganda, LIDEISA cultivates critical thinkers with enough skills to be creative citizens amid promoting unity in diversity values through harnessing cultural exchange(s) with a view of strengthening friendship between learners from different parts of Uganda and Africa at-large.
Whereas LIDEISA targets those victims of highly-priced formal education in Uganda and Africa at-large, it offers trainings to those who complete education without prerequisite skills to either become employable, or create own jobs.
1. LIDEISA’s trainings are sequenced according to learners’ education levels though even those without any prior education qualifications will actually be prioritized because the disadvantaged groups of people in communities like women and girls, persons with disabilities and those hailing from impoverished families find themselves disenfranchised from the labour-force. Skilling our people without subjecting them to education qualifications’ barriers, in varied disciplines will go a long way in ensuring self-independence/reliance…
2. Considering that the new generation needs skilled and innovative people, learners with education qualifications, will be modeled to become technologists, IT techs now that Internet is the driver of modern economy, Agriculturists for food security and Environment conservationists to avert climate change crisis. So, we aim at establishing technology hubs.
3. The third focus of LIDEISA is the leadership mentorship especially for those who are pursuing active societal management. Owing to waning leadership capabilities, we are focusing on grooming a breed of new leaders who are adequately skilled to lead their communities to transformation as earlier elaborated.
