Our Mission: To address unmet medical and social needs in underserved areas throughout the world.
Message from co-founders Ron Haak and Darlene Markovich

As we've traveled throughout the developing world we've been continually inspired by how hard most people work to survive and we've been saddened by the level of adversity many face. We formed Step Forward Initiative to provide a means to undertake a broad array of programs to address needs. The programs can be of any scale, from helping an individual to, for example, helping eradicate a global disease. Our hope is that individuals will "step forward" with ideas or funding for programs or join our organization with projects of their own. Together, many steps can take us far!
