girls & women empowerment

Home of Malaika

HOME OF MALAIKA is a project house, which was founded by former STEP volunteers together with the German association TAKE A MALAIKA E.V. in April 2022. The aim is to support women and children living in economic and social difficult circumstances in the district Mianzini, Arusha. At the moment the association is working together with the local NGO Kukua Pamoja, but is in the process of founding its own international NGO.
The Team in Mianzini is very happy about the support of volunteers. The project house is still developing,so there is a lot of things to do! Volunteers can help to teach
and play with the children during the remedial classes in the afternoon, help to embellish and renovate the classrooms and of course support all the different projects!
You can find the following projects at the HOME OF MALAIKA house:

  • The Sewing and Creative Project where women produce various gifts sold in Tanzania and Europe providing the women with a stable income
  • The project “Ulinzi wa kike” (“Protection for women”) which teaches girls in local schools to sew their own reusable sanitary pads
  • The sponsorship program – Kukua Pamoja (“grow together”) which provides daycare and after school support for over 200 children in need.
  • The Family Friends project which supports families in need through initial funding and business training.
