@Asociatia Life Steppers Romania is still doing great things in Paje.

La multi ani tuturor!
Am revenit acasa, dar ca si anul trecut, mare parte din sufletul nostru a ramas in Paje, alaturi de copilasii nostri dragi!
Avem foarte multe sa va povestim, le vom lua pe rand :)
La cateva zile d**a ce am ajuns, am hotarat sa facem o vizita la dispensarul din sat. Cu ajutorul donatiilor facute de voi am reusit sa ducem o cantitate considerabila de medicamente.
Inca o data va multumim din suflet , in numele locuitorilor acestui mic satuc din Zanzibar!

Hi everyone. I am now in Göteborg (sweden) where I settled few months ago. Writing a novel about what the association did. (Any help is welcomed). It is still in our heart to start again soon. But it takes time.
Paje is still in our heart and what else can we do if not telling the story of what we have done there and why it had to end.
But there nothing is ended and if you travel to Zanzibar remember to go visit them. People are still acting. Bigambo Maulidi Shaka

To all of you that have been following and helping us. I apologize for not being able anymore to continue this amazing adventure that was life steppers in Paje.
We all did our best with only one focus : help and be proud of our everyday life.
And we did it, and I am sure people will always remember the best of what has been done there.
I am proud to see RAK life there again with bigambo and other kids to continue to give hope and happiness to the villagers.
I am sorry for not having the strength anymore to stay close to the one we left there. And they are so many. But they will always be in my heart and welcome in my life.
I hope many of you will go there one day to meet those amazing people I had the chance to know. They were once my family and I am sure we will meet again.
The youth there are the best of the best and they shall not forget the message : everything can be done if we want.
I am on a new Road, and I will use from now my energy to focus on something important : My life.
If I want one day to create such a beautifully thing and help one more time at a bigger scale what I believe being a life goal. « sharing and caring »
I loved the 2 years in Paje and it will always be in heart.
Life Steppers association Zanzibar is there doing is best through bigambo the great that is living the raklife now. please contact him, contact raklife contact everyone living there if one day you want to feel the same as I felt.
Contact them all, and say HI from me when you meet them.
If you want to involve yourself I give you the website, the page and all i have for you to continue.
Just contact me.
Peace.
Rémi.

Hi everyone. Long time.
As some of you know already, we are back in Europe.
We are not anymore in Tanzania, and Zanzibar.
For personal reasons Life steppers is having a break.

During this pause, we are putting together all our stengh to start a project somewhere else.
It will take a few month to find the ressources, and humans needed to go somewhere and help.
After CCM wons elections (elections that they stole) in Zanzibar again, we don't want to be in Tanzania anymore. What we did in Paje was great, and it helped a lot. We wanted a 2 years on site support, and we did. We then tried to set up something bigger with your help, to increase the impact. But people on site failed to help us. People on site failed to understand. But our message is still there, in the kids head, and we know that the change will come. Then we will be back.

For now break... relaxing time.. writting time, thinking time.
You are more than welcome to think with us about the next step, be part of the adventure, and participate to it from the beginning.

Peace and never give up to act.

No roads almost in the island, so with a bike we go around incredible places to meet villagers and discover that Mafia is amazing, quiet and peaceful. Green, breathing and so wild, we could talk about its beauty for hours but the most important is that villagers are really open to welcome us and help to settle with them. We met already few chairmen of different villages, and it is all positive, they see our arrival like something good for their future.
We will finish to look around to be sure we found the ideal place where we will focus and continue to help and develop.

In every corner of Zanzibar, politic discussion goes deep and thoughts are not quiet anymore. Us, in the middle of this storm we are an easy target for old and powerful families in Paje that don't want to see the change coming. On Monday we will leave the island to go in an other place to rest and see if we can bring our projects there.
We will be back in Zanzibar and Paje when things are fixed politically. We already miss all of the villagers. It is a really sad decision but we need to go on and continue to grow, to be back strong and ready.
Next week, news from the probably new spot for us to settle. #lifesteppers

Hi everyone. The world is a cruel place that we want to build better. No drama, a reality we are facing.
The association and it's members acting on site here in Zanzibar decided to leave the island as soon as possible, as one more time we are arrested, threatened and abused by authorities. If you follow us you know that we had so many problems already that we always faced and deal with, but this time it is going to far. We got arrested the 4th of February in our house, by immigration officers that put us under arrest regarding the law and for criminal investigation, that we prefer not to communicate here on Internet, and you will understand why as everything could be used against us.
We can't afford anymore to put our lives in danger.
This association is made of honest people that never had to deal with police or any other authorities all around the world, and we will not waste our health, time, energy for that. Never.
We all believe that we can bring our project in a more stable area of the world, be welcomed and work hand by hand with local authorities in the future.
The Eco volunteer village will be the start of our settlement in a really close future in an other village, outside of Zanzibar.
We think about it...
Thanks a lot to the people that helped us to buy the plot that we have here in Paje, and that we will not loose. The project is still on as this will be the first tool life steppers will bring in the new village where we will go and settle.
We of course all wish to be back here one day and continue to help all those families that we are so sad to leave and abandon.
Thanks a lot to all of you that have been bringing joy, happiness in Paje by your presence, donations and energy. They deserve it so much and it is a real shame.
But we are in a perpetual danger here, and we need to go away.
We are today also ready to listen to your recommendation about a place where you would like to see us go and act. Leave your comment with an idea of country, area, village where we could go.
It will only be a matter of weeks before we start stepping again.
If of course we are free on Tuesday.
Peace.

Freestyle Wakushi Band&Stone Town Records

Our story with Wakushi Band from Bush Land started almost 2 years ago when we first arrived in the island and met Mash. With a dream of promoting the new generation of artists from zanzibar and tanzania.
He first created Stone Town Records, and became a lead singer of the Wakushi band. We are glad to be their friends and a support for them, and we always said that we'll do many things together.
Now with all their friends here in Zanzibar, Tanzania, they are concluding a hard work: Go to Europe, share their talent, and give you the best they have! Music, spirit and soul.
They are already programed at the Pamoja festival in Kiruna (Sweden), so the time is here to explore Europe and play there!

Find here what they can offer you, if you help them.
(If you have friends that have a bar, a restaurant, a place where they could play, share massively)

Hello everybody.
As you know, we are about to build an eco volunteer village (EVV) here in Paje, to grow our impact, and welcome more actors of development that will fulfill our goal, and allow us to sustain a new model of actions on site.
Julia, our architect is here to design it.
To give it a better sens, we are about to buy a piece of land.

More information: http://www.lifesteppers.org/#/our-goal/ (Don't go the the crowdfunding now, and pass through paypal on the website)

But for that, the association is still looking for some money.

Starting JULY 2016!
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Please donate, and make a difference today!
Thanks to those that already donated for this project.
THE AMOUNT NEEDED LEFT IS $ 2700.

THANKS.

The idea is to create a village where each actor of development, whether organization or individual, will be able to work with us. The investment requirement is low and provides the opportunity to join us on site, to experience, and act will increase

Toamini, a young masai girl from paje and Rémi, soon stars of a video clip for a european song with millions of download in 2 weeks. A lot of fun being in front of the camera for her, and a lot of stories to tell to her friends! Lifestepping is also bringging people here to share opportunities and give locals hope and faith, not only with money but with different experiences.

If we try our best to meet tourists, and to make them join us in the village to meet local life, and workers, it is to create a relation between foreigners and villagers. To help you discover their everyday life and help you feel and experience different things during your stay.
But for the villagers it is an amazing moment to welcome you. They become part of the tourism industry, it grows their incomes, and they make new friends everyday!
This is not a zoo, it is just a way to meet and share.
For us life steppers it is maybe the best we can do here, as if it works properly, many many villagers will be impacted by your stay in the future, much more than they are now.
Karibuni.

Yesterday was a great day, and we want more of them!
It was the first time for life steppers, thanks to RAK life and everyone eats to be able to reach as many villagers in a one day project.
We killed a cow and distributed to 145 elders, 1/2kg of meat and 1kg rice, so they can cook themself a good diner and enjoy with their neighboors.
Thanks to Mzè Souleyman and Ba Mao, we think we didn't miss even one in the entire village!
