Growth Goals for our women

Market access

Dear Supporters, Family and Friends of Serendipity,

Some months ago we concluded on the first batch of training on organic poultry and livstock production for 40 young women and 10 young men in partnership with Young Africa Works (Mastercard Foundation) and Enterprise Developement Center. We included males at the instance of the district heads of the local councils in Kano due to getting young men off the streets and become gainfully employed.

The next phase of our programme which will run for six months will start on the 4th Of August on the issue of growth goals/climate change as it affects agriculture and follow up on all they have been taught, If there are any issues in terms of funding and all. 

Due to the rising surge of the new strain of COVID 19 (Delta 2 Strain) found in Nigeria, we have taken measures to make the programme virtual as we want everyone to stay safe.

Collation of data is still ongoing in the form of survey prior to the start of the programme which we would report back to the house on our findings.

We want to thank you for your continued support and confidence reposed in us in empowering our young women on agriculture and in growing their skills.

You can visit our website to learn more Serendipity Healthcare Foundation or social media handles on LinkedIN, Facebook, Instagram or give us a call on 2347030630118.

Thank you,

5 Communities have access to water, more to come!!

Access to water
Access to water

Dear Family, Supporters and Friends of Serendipity,

I am proud to say that we have completed one of our milestones in our strategy to provide access to water, sanitation and hygiene in five local governing councils in Kano Municipal, Tarauni, Ungogo, Tofa and Fagge local Governing councils.

In Tarauni, a handpump was installed in Government Girls Secondary School with a population of 2000 students, In Kano Municipal Engineer Bashir Karaye Secondary School a motorized borehole was installed with a population of 1500 students, In Tofa, Tofa Town Primary Healthcare Center a hand pump was installed with an average of 750 outpatient per day that cover both Tofa town community and their immediate neighbors of Sabon Kofa and Yan Gari Communities. In Ungogo, Amarzakaya community a hand pump was installed in the city center which is in the middle of the community where over 550 persons will have access to water thus leaving enough time for the children to prepare for school and the women to be productive and finally in Fagge, Sabon Gari community a motorized borehole was installed that will cater for 30 households with average of 20 persons per household.

We are yet to collect our signed MOUs from the communities as part of our due diligence for sustainability, maintenance and security of the water sources which will be done over the next few days as schools just resumed and a gradual return to normalcy as a result of lockdown due to COVID 19 virus.

Our next steps are to provide more access to safe clean drinking Water, Ventilated Improved Pit Latrines, distribution of COVID 19 materialsto schools and primary health care centers because we want everyone to stay safe, trainings on good hand washing practices and workshops to identify and certify our schools as WASH Friendly schools.

Our strategy of leaving no one behind entails reaching the poorest of the poor who cannot afford WASH Services while combating discrimination and rising inequalities in provision of WASH, as in the first-place safe clean drinking water and sanitation is a fundamental human right.

You have been helpful to us in succeeding to ensure that no one is left behind in the access to water, sanitation and Hygiene through your generous donations, advice and support because you care all through the years as you have been on this journey with us. Thank You for that!!

July 14th is GlobalGiving Bonus Day where funds from $100 will be matched at 15%, 30% match on donations from $500 and 50% match on donations from $750 starting at 9.00am ET and we at Serendipity will be participating.

Thus mark your calendars NOW to DONATE to get your funds matched so that we continue to ensure that no one gets left behind. 

Best Regards,

The Joy of access to water

Dear Family, Supporters and Friends of Serendipity,

We have reached another milestone which is providing access to water in two locations in two local governing councils in Kano, a community in Amarzakaya in Ungogo and Tofa Town in Tofa. 

In Amarzakaya Community, 550 persons will have access to water as the handpump was cited in the middle of the community thus giving access to the children and women who go to source water for their household use with free time to go to school and the women performing other chores at home.

In Tofa town, 750 out patient women and children (May 2021 hospital records) will benefit from the handpump installed at the primary healthcare centre thus ensuring the healthcare center remains clean as it will be used to clean the premises, used to sanitise the hospital equipments and for good hand washing practices.

As part of our policy in Serendipity we ensure we follow due process in delivering our programmes and thus ensure that we sign an MOU with the communities or schools or primary healthcare centers for sustainability of the hand pumps in regards to maintainance and security of the water source against theft. We also call for tenders for drilling companies to bid for the installation of the water access such that good quality materials are used for drilling and the water access installed comes with a guaranty for 1 year. 

This has been our success story over the years as water sources installed 12 years ago in communities are still working.

Our next steps after we conclude on the installation of access to 3 additional water source in the coming weeks will be distribution of COVID 19 materials, trainings on good hand washing practices and workshops to identify and certify our schools as WASH Friendly schools.

Our goal is to provide access to water in five local governing councils, Ventilated Improved Pit Latrines in two local governing councils, provision of COVID 19 materials and workshops to make our schools WASH Friendly.

We are grateful for your continued support and would appreciate any further assistance to our cause. Tell your friends the story on why you chose us, start a fundraiser on our behalf, donate during our campaigns or contact us via email on samirah@serendipityhealthcare.org.in or serenhealthcare@gmail.com for advise on our projects..

Best Regards,
