steps students - promote sustainably


"I am very grateful for having steps by my side. I really appreciate the support and all the efforts they made for me ever since I started school. Steps played a very important role in my life for being a substitute to my parents, without steps I don't think I could have made it this far. Since I have steps by my side, I'll never waste this opportunity as there are many people out there crying out for what I have. I'll always strive to achieve my goals and be the best of what I can be!"

* You support one of our students in the steps student program, but not a special student. This prevents financial shortfalls by other sponsors and also protects the students' privacy.
