Stepping Stones International has made a significant difference in the lives of participants especially in the reading programs. The students are now reading, comprehending, learning and passing tests which allows them to continue in further education and/or in the job market. As well, the youth are experiencing new adventures which we take for granted daily, such as realizing their self value, finding hidden talents, making new friends, and realizing care and love!!!
SSI, you are the very BEST!!! Keep up the wonderful successes!

Stepping Stones International is a one of a kind NGO in Botswana giving hope and life to youth ages 12-18 and beyond. These children are being fed, taught social skills, given a chance to know their worth and value. They have been robbed of a childhood and are given the chance to pick themselves up and realize that they are loved and are very valuable souls. They are receiving tutoring and are passing their tests and moving on to the next level of education. Many have progressed to employment in a field of their liking and choice. If not for this opportunity all would be out in the streets idly wandering and wondering and most likely engaging in activities of an evil nature.

Yes! Stepping Stones International is WONDERFUL AND VALUABLE!!!!!!!!!!! It is a happy place for many!!!

The staff and volunteers at Stepping Stones inspire me. I'm so proud to be part of Stepping Stones and the good work that they do with adolescents. They make dreams come true and give young people in Mochudi a safe place to land in what is often a difficult world.

My wish would be to give the staff and management a big thanks and continued energy and resources in a dwindling resource environment. Keep up the great work ditsala - you are building stronger adults and a stronger nation. Thank you for your good work.
