community outreach

STEP Africa Community Outreach

With our Outreach Program we focus on people and communities that are disadvantaged due to their family situation (e.g. single parents), economic situation or housing situation (especially in the rural areas of northern Tanzania) and do not have regular access to information services, medical care, counselling and further education as well as sports and team-building activities.

The aim of the outreach program is to mentor, educate, support, empower and initiate intercultural exchange. Our outreach programme actively involves international volunteers and is led by a team of qualified educators and social workers. The outreach program is open to all our volunteers and can be supported full time or on a day-to-day basis alongside another main project.

Below you can find an overview of our current programs.
