​​Steps Together

​​
​We are a small Nonprofit Organization with a mission to provide underprivledged communities with the necessary materials in order for all people to receive an education they deserve. By doing this we hope to provide a stepping stone for these people to help them build self confidence to live a self-sustaining life.

Our Story
Seeing poverty firsthand, is an experience in and of itself. It overwhelms and grounds you at the same time. There are questions floating around and somewhat of a silent fear going through your head. In those moments, you can recognize the pain and suffering and a small cloud of guilt passes through. It's these moments we hold onto, these memories, these experiences, that fuel us to make ripples. Our purpose is to travel with genuine curiousity and a genuine heart, to make positive changes in as many communities as we can. 

Cambodia, a country we fell in love with instantly, is where it all began. Upon arriving, we felt it was necessary to spend some time connecting with the Khmer culture. We wanted to see something different and experience something real. After doing some research, we hopped in a tuk tuk and drove to the country side of Siem Reap. Our driver, Adam, walked us through one of the poorest villages in the area. The moment we stepped foot on the dirt path that these people call home, our hearts shattered. On this street alone, there were at least 50, one room, shacks teetering over the river, consisting of at least 4 family members in each. We slowly walked; observing, listening, and often looked at each other in disbelief. We were instantly greeted with smiles, hugs, and high fives fom the village children. The second we left, we knew we had to do something. We talked with Adam to figure out the first steps towards providing help for these families. He told us that the majority of these people are not only jobless, but can hardly afford to eat. So we began brainstorming ways that we could positively impact the community that so desperately needs help. Together, we've successfully completed five community projects and we aren't stopping there.
