About Us

Background of the Organization:
STEP began its journey from January 2001 with compliance with the phase-out policy of Shapla Neer (Shapla Neer=Citizens’ Committee in Japan for Overseas Support). Shapla Neer had every intention to institutionalize its Community Development Centers (CDC) located at Poyla, Ghior, Manikganj to be worked as a local independent organization and serve for the betterment for the locality. After getting registration from NGOAB Shapla Neer handed over staff and assets to STEP. Shapla Neer and STEP execute an agreement to complete the hand over process on April 29, 2003 after then STEP started activities independently. Since its inception, STEP has been focusing on local issues and working in collaboration of local stakeholders. .
