Did you know?
Steps of Hope was founded by a two individuals who saw the struggle among people in their homeland of Lebanon. Moved by this, they established the charity with a clear vision of eradicating poverty in Lebanon and raising awareness among the Lebanese community abroad to help those who are most in need back home. This inspiration has now become a movement, thanks to all of the volunteers who have worked tirelessly and put their passion, skills, time and love to work.
OUR FIRST SUCCESS STORY
It was for 16-year-old Shawn, who battled Duchenne muscular dystrophy and wished to see his favourite footy team in action. Seeing the positive impact his wish had on Shawn and his family was one thing – but experiencing the incredible ripple effect that spread to everyone involved inspired them to officially form the foundation.
Some 35 years on, volunteering remains at the heart of our mission, helping us grant more than 10,000 wishes for children all over the country.
