History. It Changed Everything.

Noble Step Foundation (NSF) was founded in December of 2014. Nader Matari & Mohamad Ghattas were enjoying their winter holiday in Houston, TX and spent an evening chatting about the struggles that college and university students face. In the spirit of giving, Nader & Mohamad decided to build an organization that will offer mentoring and encouragement for high school students that are ready to face the upcoming challenges of higher education and obtaining bachelor degrees and further. This was the start of NSF.

Here at Noble Step, we want to bring people together. Whether you support us financially, offer your time and experience, or simply wish us the best and spread the cause, we are most grateful to have you in our community working with us to ensure a brighter future for our generations to come.

Award Recipients

Making the difference in other people’s lives is one of the many characteristics we have in common. It all started wanting to give back to the community, and what better way there is to help educate our neighbors. Education is the most valuable tool and unfortunately not everybody is able to get one.
