Who We Are
Step Ahead is a Christian based integrated community development organization, based in Thailand, focused on partnering with the working poor to see comprehensive and sustainable transformation.
In 2004, Step Ahead expanded its core activities in response to the devastation caused by the December 26 Asian Tsunami, opening the Khao Lak office and offering education, community development, and alternative livelihood programs.
In 2009, Step Ahead once again expanded its reach, opening the Pattaya office with a primary focus on economic development activities for women at risk, innovating the ITSERA brand woven leather purse. Then, in 2012, ITSERA operations were moved to deliver the most impact in the poorest region of Thailand- the Northeast- also called Isaan.
Step Ahead serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
