STEPPING STONES INTERNATIONAL
June 27, 2011

I have volunteered here for almost a year now and I wish that this year that I am spending here would never end. There is a spirit within the staff that makes you happy to work overhours for the children, they are like a big family. Even if I am leaving soon the path of Stepping Stones International and mine are definitely going to cross at some point in my life again.
The love that is shown to these children on an averyday basis, their holistic approach in improving their life situations gives me a warm feeling in my heart after an exhausting day. Please support these guys!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily life with the children. How drama work opens children up, giving you a smile every day. How life skills sessions changed the way the children were behaving and taking care of themselves as loved human beings. Just great

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give it more money without a purpose that can be used by the creative staff for projects they create and know the needs of. I would let them build a new admin building for more space in the crowded offices.
