STEPPING STONES INTERNATIONAL
June 29, 2011

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.

The Great!

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.

Ways to make it better...

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.

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