Review for Stepping Stones International, Salt Lake Cty, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Stepping Stones International is an inspiring NGO whose approach and success story diverge from much of the discourse surrounding similar institutions. Although SSI is in its infancy, it is a recognized leader on the Botswana non-profit scene. I am elated to be associated with Stepping Stones and have remained motivated and supported throughout my stay here.

Strengths at SSI include program and management flexibility, psycho-social support, keeping the participants healthy and cared for, and educational tools. Points of improvement would be further encouraging the participants to use their imaginations in a variety of scenarios.

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

hearing the stories of the participants, some of whom are HIV+, that show how Stepping Stones is utilizing its resources to give them better prospects- both in terms of health and livelihood.

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

add more mentorship roles by involving other organizations that are willing to lend a hand with their employees talking and interacting with the kids regularly.

Role:  Volunteer & Assisted with Income Generation book keeping, budget management, curriculum writing, website upgrade.
