STEP is a secular and non-political organization incorporated in Singapore as a Company Limited by Guarantee on 27 February 2009, and was approved as a registered International Charity Organisation (ICO) on 1 July 2009. Having evolved from GK Hope Initiative (UEN: 200903562K), STEP draws its experience and learning from over 5 years of hands-on engagement in poverty eradication and community development – it has also engaged over 1,000 students and teachers in OCIP and YEP activities.
Can we think of a time when we were really thirsty? Probably after a marathon? Or a soccer match? And you’ll probably just reach out to your fridge for a nice cold glass of coke, and for the health conscious, a glass of water. We’ve never had to leave our houses and walk 5 miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Yet we have over a billion of the world’s population who have no access to clean water. It’s really difficult to comprehend the magnitude of 1 billion people. Maybe one in eight person might be easier? Well OK, one in eight people do not have access to something you and I and most other people take it for granted at times. Something we can’t imagine going 12 hours without.
For every service engagement that you have with us, we donate a handsome portion to them. It’s our way of saying “thank you”.
