STEP

What is STEP?

\r\n

STEP (Student Training For Entrepreneurial Promotion) aims at providing business skills to the youth in tertiary education system, that may help them upon graduation to become entrepreneurs and job creators rather than job seekers. The project is followed by the cooperation of the Uganda National Commission for UNESCO, the German Commission for UNESCO and Leuphana University of Lueneburg (Germany). Right now STEP is in its second phase implemented by Germany at Uganda Martyrís University (UMU) Nkozi during 2013/14.
