Get Involved with STEP

There are so many ways that you can get involved with the work of STEP and have a huge impact in the lives of the most disadvantaged children.

Hundreds of vulnerable children depend on our services every day. Your donation will help ensure we can be there to provide the support they urgently need.

Did you know that all of our international staff raise their own funds to live and work in Iraq? Our staff work very hard to keep STEP projects running and to respond to local needs as and when they arise.

Why not consider fundraising for STEP - there are a whole host of events you could be part of or organise to raise money.

If you want to give in a more hands-on way, get in touch to find out about volunteering opportunities.
