Building the steps from a life of poverty to a world of opportunity

When you support Step2 Foundation education and water programs, you help give disadvantaged Cambodian children the future they deserve.  


Since 2012, our focus has been on empowering impoverished children through education. We currently support 300+ students and aid over 12,000 individuals, providing educational opportunities and essential support. Our commitment to this mission drives our tireless efforts to improve lives and empower communities.


100% of every public donation pays for school infrastructure, student and local teacher expenses, clean water and healthy breakfast programs – so you know that your gift is directly helping the children enjoy the best available school and learning experience. 


For any cause to go the distance, it needs to empower the people it supports. Since inception, the Step2 Foundation policy of only employing local staff and suppliers has created a growing village ecosystem and genuine sense of project ownership in the community.

Meet Nisai Thio

         Hi, I am Nisai Tho. I am 16 years old and live in Svay Chey Village, Cambodia. I am the youngest daughter in my family and have two older sisters.  

I am in grade GEP 3 of Ace and have been studying with Step2 Foundation program since 2012.  They taught me English and cultures. I gained a lot of positive experiences here. We also have clean water for daily use and a library.  

In the future, I want to study physics and be a teacher. I also dreamed of owning a coffee shop to support my family. More than this, I can get a good job, teach, and share my English with the next generation. I really enjoyed learning English at Svay Chey English School. 

I would like to thank you Step2 Foundation especially Mrs. Zeynep Roberts, and every teacher for sharing these to us. You have provided us with more than education. Thank you so much!
