STEP is Skills/Startup Training Empowerment and Practice.
Community motivational meetings in schools lead to a small group of trainees for business, vocational and personal skills training followed by an incubator phase with mentoring. The goal is employability and entrepreneurship. It is the ladies themselves who “take the step”, as business ideas and vocational choices come from them.
STEP is essentially a bridge from inactivity to work engagement and is almost the only project of its kind on the north side. This is one measure, which seeks to build hope and capacity in a tough urban environment.
