Descrição da revisão

Our programs are based on the principle of learning with and from each other in an increasingly globalized world. Broadening your horizons and looking outside the box is one of the most valuable experiences that will shape your future life. A trip to Africa opens your eyes to other realities and perspectives. We firmly believe in the power of change through intercultural exchange. With our programs we promote and demand equality and cultural tolerance. We know and love Tanzania like no other country and can tell exactly what is important when organizing your stay. As a sustainable organization, we support, with the help of our volunteers, selected projects and initiatives in Tanzania.

Step Africa - Exchange for Change Limited was founded in 2014 in German - Tanzanian cooperation and is led by Kira Uher as its on site director in ArushaWhile Kira works hand in hand with her administration team behind the scenes, our volunteers are accompanied through their time in Tanzania by a wonderful German-Tanzanian team of supervisors. Our entire team is based on-site in Tanzania, eliminating the need for expensive administrative structures.  

Meaningful Volunteering

We only place our volunteers into projects in which they can gain a lot of valuable experience for their future. Our volunteers do not replace local workers. Volunteers are assistants who offer support to employees. They also use their expertise to teach their target groups new skills and to open new perspectives.

Reducing Prejudices

What many of us have learned about Africa in the media doesn’t always reflect the truth. In Africa there is more than just poverty and misery. Tanzania is a country full of ideas and resources, politically stable and of breathtaking beauty. 

STEP Africa wants to give people of every age the chance to get to know the beauty but also the difficulties and challenges of Tanzania with their own eyes. Internships are a wonderful opportunity to meet people and small aid initiatives on an equal footing, to learn how to work, to assist the local workforce and to develop long-term and sustainable friendship and cooperation through intercultural dialogue.

We know what we are talking about! Our team combines relevant qualifications and many years of experience in education and social work in Tanzania. 

Our team is looking forward to welcoming you in Tanzania!

2024 at Baby Safe Home - Child Care Worker

Africa differs from Europe in many ways, but that was clear from the outset. For me personally, these are mainly advantages. I was able to learn a lot about Africa and Arusha in paticular during this time. Thanks to the organization and projects it is possible to get to know Arusha not as a Tourist ...
During my time as a volunteer at Mwanzo Daycare I experienced a lot. Most of the time I played with the children and it’s priceless to laugh with them and see their smiling faces! Over Christmas I was at Jitambue Kwanza, a daycare that is still under construction, and was able to help on the ...
