STEPPING STONES INTERNATIONAL
October 24, 2014

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!!!

Stepping Stones Intl. is a one of a kind program and most amazing. The staff is diverse and international from all parts of the world. The participants are given a chance to smile, laugh, and catch up with a bit of the childhood that was stolen from them. Progress has been made in academics, communication skills, income generating, financial management, entrepreneur skills, computer training, goal setting. A critical issue os sexual abuse and gender equality is being address with the youth and in the community. SSI reaches the 100 participants AND families AND community....building a healthier environment. SSI is nothing short of THE VERY BEST!!!!!!! Thanks SSI!!!!!

The Great!

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

The smiles and laughter emanating from the participants. At first Mmost were very shy and intovert but as time moved on they became trusting, open, laughing and loving.

Ways to make it better...

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

Somehow find more funding which is badly needed for progress.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & worked with participants and staff wherever needed.

It has been my privilege to spend time with the youth at Stepping Stones Intl. I am in awe at how these young people have opened up and are progressing in a world that seemed so far out of their reach. They now have the chance to make choices,set goals,and become contributing adults. They know what it is like to be their ages and have fun. With more donations and monies, this nonprofit can accomplish amazing feats. Please Help!!!!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the participants and the progress they make in interacting and opening up!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Flourish like no other!!!!! It would grow and be able to go to places that have asked them to come. SSI would be able to pay quality salaries for top of the line staff! WOW!! IMAGINE!!!!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
