Servo Medical School
Servo Medical School provides training in medical courses such as Nursing, Clinicians, Dentistry, Lab Technicians, and Pharmacology. The school was launched in September, 2019 with a medical camp undertaken. The medical camp saw to it that persons with malaria were tested and treated, others that were diagnosed with other diseases were referred to other hospitals and pharmaceuticals with medical instructions. Servo Medical School will help contribute to boosting the health service in Gulu community area by nurturing more health service providers who will help cover the shortage of health service providers in the greater northern Uganda region.

Equiping Young People with Skills
Through Business Technical and Vocational Education and Training (BTVET), we are equiping young people with skills. School dropouts, young mothers, and young people affected or infected by HIV/AIDS are our central focus. We train our students into skills like plumbing, welding works, carpentry, tailoring, building construction and practice, business management training, cartering services and practical computer training among others. We provide startup tools to all our students after graduating, we provide startup tools like computers, welding machines and metal hardware, plumbing tools, carpentry tools and wood, sewing machines, construction tools and construction jobs liaison, cartering service jobs liaison as well as working space to enable our students start work immediately.
We engage our students through rigorous training to churn out the right fit. We ensure that our students are ready to face the world of work and that they can be very productive when they leave the class to go out to world of work. We nevertheless equally want to keep students in schools and reduce the school drop out late.
We believe in value addition and value uniqueness in all we do, this is the very reason why research is deeply embedded in everything we do. In all engagements we partake; we ensure to add value through research and innovation. If we are doing tailoring, we want to be the best tailors that exist, but can only achieve that through research and innovation.
Research is the life blood of the foundation and feeds our entire value chain productivity.
Getting Out to Serve
Our outreach work involves working with a network of organizations which include local leaderships, schools, communities and all like parties to deliver social impact for transformational and innovative development. We work with community organizations to identify social problems and thereby work the line towards creating deserved and positive change
Fitting the Gaps that Exist to Socities Problems
We ensure to brainstorm on the gaps that exist to socities problems and move a step further to establishing possible solutions to the existent challenges so as to impact on social development. We write policies, we identify legal gaps and draft bills of law to pursue them into established law through parliament, develop proposals, write business plans etc that impact social change. We equally advocate for human rights of men and women equally and pursue the achievement of the standard development goals.
We engage utmostly on the following SDGs, they include; ensuring that there's No Poverty (SDG1), there is Zero Hunger (SDG2), that there is Good Health and Wellbeing (SDG3), that there's Quality Education (SDG4), those are our central focus SDGs at Terizina Community Foundation. However, we venture into realization of all other SDGs from time to time.
Taping into Untapped Talent
We know that everyone is a star - at least at something inherently embedded in them. Our duty is to mine that talent, exposé it, nurture it, and then activate it. We are encouraging young people; girls, teenage mothers develop a sense of purpose by helping them tap into their untapped talent. We want to create a global movement of performers who recognize culture and traditions as a resource to personal success and wealth. We acknowledge that with the right training and tuning, we can create international stars in diffierent rights, be them a tailor, a hair dresser, a performing artist etc.
We believe their is talent that is hidden in many young people, most of these being school dropouts, some of whom can sing, speak creatively, dance, act and do so many other things that may be in-born or nurtred, we want to give them an opportunity to perform and create an act, a generation of potential stars who probably thought that their journey in life was condensed to suffering but rather empower them to commercialize their talent.
Reducing School Dropout Rates in Rural Schools
SAFE STUDENTS' INITIATIVE
We realized that several issues lead to school dropouts, among those lacking a sense of purpose in school and finding school to be boring. We know that children have a right to education and we also know that they have a right to play. We attend to the latter by seeing to it that schools are not just a place where students go to be engulfed in theories but rather a place where they can recreate, have fun and enjoy. SASI addresses ten aspects for social transformation of students. The program is entrenched in the education sector which sees a vast number of student dropouts in rural schools. Rural students encounter various diversions and challenges which lead them into dropping out of school. We have identified these action items to set the course of reaction in our community transformation efforts geared towards nurturing students that love to school and reduce the dropout rates.
- Rural Children enter kindergarten ready to succeed in school
- Students improve academic performance and are proficient in core subjects
- Students successfully transition from elementary to middle high school or O level
- Students graduate from high school
- Students earn a college degree or a technical training certification
- Students are healthy and their educational performance improves by accessing aligned learning and enrichment activities
- Students feel safe at school and in their community
- Students live in stable communities
- Families and community members support learning Collaborations in Rural Schools; and
- Students have access to games and 21st-century learning tools
Our study shows that 98% of rural school going children have not had the opportunity to see the inside of a nursery school, more still; nursery school has been found to nurture brilliance in children and or dullness where a child encounters an unprofessional teacher. We want to see to it that the literacy levels of infants that are being introduced to school are nurtured from nursery school and that children get the right to be children and most of all that they get the right to play as nursery school going children and further see to it that teachers get the requisite skills to raise a child without damaging their cognitive abilities which they rather set out to enhance.
Securing Homes through their Animals
There is a great deal of homesteads that own dogs, many of these dogs are not vaccinated and pose a social security risk. Almost 95% of homes that own dogs in the Gulu area do not cage their dogs, this makes anyone and everyone a target of rabid dogs. Whereas, many homes own livestock and poultry in the communities we engage, they have lost some of the animals to disease, we have ventured into helping communities save their animals through Veterinary Aid and care from volunteers.
Homes depend on livestock such as chicken, and cattle which they rear on a free range system. Many homes lose their livestock due to lack of access to veterinary services, through our outreach programs we want to equally see to it that we impact the lives of people in communities by helping them keep their livestock alive and multiplying. We want to do this by providing veterinary extension services as well as livestock management advisory services offered to the community free of charge.
Investing in People
Change Makers Volunteers (CMVs)
The Change Makers Volunteers (CMVs) initiative addresses the needs and concerns of young people from a youth perspective. Each year, CMVs will be mobilized and placed in various community engaging programs focused on solving the challenges in the communities that Terizina engages. We work with CMVs to write grants, engage them in youth, women, teenage mothers and children's programs. CMVs work in teams, develop projects, proposals, policies, and ideas drawing from a diversity of race, experience, expertise etc. CMVs contribute to their involvement in our programs as we equally source for funding to facilitate their stay. TCF carries out a single recruitment of volunteers every year and these are prepared to partake in the projects of the organization for one year. CMVs are very valuable to us and to our programs as they bring to Terizina a wealth of skills, ideas, and social transformation.
