Thank you for ten years
steps for children
– DR. MICHAEL HOPPE, FOUNDER
We at steps for children are driven by our passion to help Namibian children and families in need. Throughout the past decade, we have worked to turn around the lives of children coming from especially dire backgrounds. Our Foundation’s work is focused on sustainability and education and last but not least we want to give hope to children and families who have known such hardship: By presenting a perspective for a better life.
With you, our donors, volunteers, employees and friends, our visions became reality. In order to celebrate our 10th anniversary and to raise awareness for the circumstances in Namibia, we have created this website and gathered several short films to give you an insight into our work at steps for children.
PAST & FUTURE
Ten years ago, we started out with a simple idea. We wanted to help children in need in Namibia. During the past decade, our idea has become reality and we have been able to grow with our responsibilities. With the help of our many friends and supporters all around the world we have become a respected foundation dedicated to our clear goal.

Our vision for the future is financial independence from donations. With this in mind we have created the income generating steps. Our farms provide our soup kitchens at schools with fresh vegetables and therefore make possible a healthy meal for our children. However the farmers also sell their home-grown peppers, spinach and corn on the local markets and secure through this their living.
