Africa Foundation and &Beyond were successful in obtaining donor funding in 2019 to provide appropriate, cozy family housing for Sero Clinic employees, allowing them to work on-site. The government also assigned a doctor to work at the clinic as a result of the improved facilities.
Sero residents no longer have to go to Ololosokwan Clinic for medical care, and emergencies can now be handled much more quickly and efficiently. This has had a significant influence on the community. This also applies to the nursing staff, who are now permanently stationed on-site. A global movement to enhance maternal health by expanding the number of primary health care providers has been underway for the past 20 years.
In the Loliondo division’s Ngorongoro district, the Arusha region has Ololosokwan Ward. It includes a number of communities that are bordered by Kenya to the north and the eastern Serengeti National Park, including Ololosokwan, Sero, and Meirowa.
A tiny percentage of immigrants, including the Wambulu, who are agriculturalists from other northern Tanzanian locales, make up the population, which is primarily made up of Maasai agro-pastoralists. There are roughly 6,000 people living in Ololosokwan village.
With great pride, the Maasai community cherishes and lives its culture. In contrast to many other tribes that live close to protected areas, they are well renowned for being able to coexist peacefully with animals because they do not consume game meat.
Africa Foundation and andBeyond have partnered with the Ololosokwan, Meirowa and Sero communities, for over 15 years, supporting their sustainable development, with a legacy focus on Ololosokwan Clinic and Primary School, Meirowa Primary School and Sero Clinic.
