We are celebrating our 6th birthday and thought there is no better way than to share 6 stories from 6 of our stakeholders! These include a trainee, a graduate, a parent/guardian, a business partner, an employment partner, and our CEO.
Everything we achieve is due to these stakeholders and the various partnerships that evolve from their participation in the mission.
An inclusive community is possible when we are aligned in creating a world that celebrates and values difference. #6YearsOfSteps

“My perceptions and attitudes towards people changed after I joined Steps and got to work with our trainees. I wish I could let people know what Steps is doing and how wonderful it is. An inclusive community starts with our mindset and being at Steps naturally changes us into ones.”
Our coffee shop branch managers play a key role in not only mentoring trainees and graduates but ensuring great customer service and high standards of food – as you would expect at any coffee shop!
We are passionate about demonstrating social enterprises can be both sustainable and impactful and this begins with offering services customers want to return for.
Many of our neurotypical employees have shared with us over the years that they were initially scared or worried about supporting our trainees, mostly due to negative media representations of disability in Thailand.
Today, people seek us out as they want to work somewhere with a social purpose – what better sign that society is changing!
