Step-by-Step Learning Centre (SSLC) is a non profit inclusive special needs educational program established in Arusha, Tanzania. It provides high quality special education for students with learning difficulties (LD) at all stages of their development.

Our mission is to promote the physical, intellectual, psychological and social development of each child through a holistic educational provision in an inclusive, empathetic, respectful and stimulating environment.  We use child-centered learning methods to encourage all the children, including those experiencing learning challenges, to reach their maximum potential.  We recommend /use state-of-the art interventions to facilitate the learning and appropriative development of each child.

The Rose that Grew from Concrete

Our vision is reflected in our logo. The rose that grew from concrete symbolizes special needs children who are sometimes seen by society as incapable and often have difficult backgrounds. This tough foundation is represented by the crack in the concrete as opposed to fertile soil. Yet with the family support, and the care and nurturing that SSLC strives to provide, we believe these children can conquer their hardships and grow into something beautiful.
