Making our schools WASH Friendly

Workshop
Workshop

Dear Supporters, Friends and Family of Serendipity,

Open defecation has been a terrible practice in our communities as we informed you in our last report and thus led to our conducting a workshop “Making Our Schools WASH Friendly”. The workshop was a one day event where we taught 6 schools we have done projects on provision of access to water, toilets and COVID 19 relief materials through your kind donations.

The schools that attended the workshop were Government Girls Secondary School Tarauni, Millenium Primary and Secondary Schools, Bawo Road, Engineer Bashir Karaye primary and Secondary School, Sabon Gari Gadan Primary School, Salha Academy and Persons living with disability primary school.

The schools were taught on how to make their schools WASH friendly using the basic guidelines set out in the Hygiene Improvement Programme started by USAID for School Directors, Teachers, Parents (PTA) and other stakeholders. The schedule of programme is based on why WASH matters, Why WASH is important in schools, Discovering the WASH situation in Schools, Understanding the WASH problem, How to make our schools WASH Friendly and the 13 Basic steps to making our Schools WASH Friendly.

Now with your kind donations, we are able to do this workshop successfully and in six months time, WASH Evaluators and Specialists will visit the schools to evaluate the schools and award the schools that have taken to heart and implemented all what they have been taught.

We sincerely thank you for the support your have shown to us that our schools become WASH Friendly through this training and NOW we can be assured that open defecation practices are reduced and good handwashing and hygiene practices are adopted!

The Vulnerables are not left Behind

Dear Supporters, Friends and Family of Serendipity,

We have the vulnerable, the weak amongst us and when it comes to policy making and inclusiveness we tend to forget about these groups, and they form an important part of our lives. Our mission is to ensure that 1000 additional children are given Insecticide Treated Mosquito Nets to prevent them from getting Malaria and also taught on how to keep their environment clean and free from Malaria breeding grounds.

Our campaign took us to a school of children living with disabilities, a primary school that caters for the deaf, handicapped and the blind where we distributed 25 pieces of Insecticide Treated Nets with your kind donations.

We also trained them with the help of their teachers on how to keep their environment clean, we also intend to distribute more to the pupils before schools are closed for the holidays because the children come from a background with little or no knowledge of the importance of sleeping under Insecticide treated nets and causes of malaria breeding grounds.

We sincerely thank you for the support your have shown to us that our children do not fall ill as a result of Malaria which amounts for every 1 in 100,000 deaths amongst children in developing countries through your kind donations to stop MALARIA.

Yours Faithfully

Dear Supporters, Friends and Family of Serendipity,

From the last you heard from us, we mentioned that we have adopted a school which is Government Girls Secondary School in Tarauni Local Government Area in Kano and also recently added another school which is Persons living with disability primary school in Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area, Kano thus we now have two schools to cater for ensuring the girls remain in school.

We are proud to state that through your kind donations we have been able to provide teaching aids for both schools which includes 17 White Boards, 24 markers, 48 refills, 24 dusters, and 3 mathematical set square boards for science classes, Schools have resumed and thus we have handed over the materials to them.

Our next steps are to provide teachers teaching curriculum, laboratory equipment, tables and chairs for the schools, rehabilitation of the classrooms. With your Kind donations, we can continue to procure this items, rehabilitate the classrooms and provide tables and chairs for the schools and making them accessible for our handicapped girls.
