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