The Hamburg foundation steps for children is looking for a fundraiser (m/f/d) as soon as possible.

About Us:

Since 2005, steps for children in Namibia has been committed to providing education and nutrition to destitute children from the informal settlements. What began with a preschool group for 30 children has now grown to over 2.000 children and young people who are looked after, fed and supported by 71 employees in eight educational institutions at six locations. In addition to educational work, we set up small businesses, create jobs and train our employees. The surpluses generated flow to our facilities and finance local activities. Our long-term goal is to become less dependent on donations. This commitment is already supported by a large number of German and Swiss companies, foundations, private donors and schools. Together with this strong and growing network, we create opportunities and assume responsibility.
