I was born and raised South West of this non-profit's area of operation. Just like the beneficiaries of SSFH's work, I was poor and in need...so I do relate and know how thankful they are about what SSFH is doing in their lives.

I have also attended SSFH's fundraiser here in the US, listened to the testimony of donors who have travelled to Bunamweri and witnessed the transparent reporting e.t.c.

I know Father Dennis Kasule, SSFH's founder and have witnessed his work in support of the Ugandan Diaspora Community here in the US. May God continue to bless him and his work.

I have attended several fundraising drives over the years for the Stepping Stones Foundations of Hope (SSFOH). It’s an honor to attend the annual fundraising dinner where donations help with delivering medical and educational services to underserved communities in my motherland, Uganda. SSFOH provides updates about ongoing projects on their Facebook page. This is a great nonprofit organization that directly impacts the lives of children, mothers, fathers, and everyone in these communities.

Seeing the happy faces of the families that have access to clean water, the child who has an opportubity to a bright future through education and the tears of joys expressed when cold hearts are warmed. I will forever be grateful for being asked to be part of the stepping stones foundation of hope. Together we can make a diffference.

I give SSFOH Five Stars for a job well done!
SSFOH started more than 10 years ago to educate children in Bunnamweri village in Uganda using sponsorships from kind individuals and corporations. Today, St. Raphael Junior School is serving an ever-increasing number of children. SSFOH is working on expanding school grounds and classroom space.

The influence of SSFOH has spread beyond school boarders to support and develop the community, beginning with employing their own school graduates! Other community support projects include St. Raphael Clinic, the construction of the village church, sponsoring of sports events for the youth and most recently, the opening of a vocation training center to train those in need of job skills.

My name is Gertrude Nalumansi. I was born, raised and educated in Uganda. Education is one of the best gifts I have ever received from my parents and my sponsors. Educating a child in Uganda is comparable to training a child to swim before letting him/her near a swimming pool by him/herself. It is a necessity. It is a life-line.

Thank you very much all of you who are supporting SSFOH. You are making a difference in many lives and changing the course of life for the sweet, innocent children.

Thank you SSFOH for stepping up to give our children a solid foundation to build on!

This is clearly a need-based project! Those in need are met and served as they are, where they are. Though people are pressed with overwhelming survival needs, a project of water, education and faith is a liberating exercise, not just for the individuals who gain immediate, direct benefits, but for the entire region and for many years to come. Thank you Stepping Foundations of Hope for instilling hope that lasts.

I have been involved with SSFOH since 2012. I witnessed the amazing work that's being done in 2015 - when I travelled to Uganda. To date, SSFOH has built 8 wells for clean water, a health clinic, sponsored the education of 40+ students and opened a junior school for the most underserved students - nursery through 7th grade. SSFOH is a wonderful organization that is looking forward to doing much more!

I love what stepping stones is all about!!! Having had the opportunity to see with my own eyes the change and the smiles it has brought to the lives of the humblest in a rural part of Uganda, I am more thrilled than ever to be part of SSFoH mission and activities. Most basic needs like water, health services for women and children have gotten to the people that need them most due to the amazing work of Stepping Stones. To me this is humanity being there for humanity at its best!!

Stepping Stones Foundation of hope lives up to its name and it’s mission which is to expand the horizons of hope for the less fortunate by helping them through several avenues. Education facilitation and sponsor a child program, water and wellness initiative and faith promotion will pursue the empowerment of the less fortunate
I have been truly blessed to be a part of this organization as a board member and director of events since June 2015.
Through all these years I have experienced a tremendous leap in my spritual life feeling more compassion and love for those who are poor and marginalized. Being born in a third world country myself makes this feeling more intense. And having lived in America for the last 40 years makes me appreciate what wonderful blessings we have.
I am grateful for Fr. Dennis Kasule who heads this organization who through his passion and love for God as well as his countrymen established this foundation of hope.
I give a 5 star rating for Stepping Stones Foundation of Hope.

I have known Fr. Dennis Kasule and Stepping Stones Of Hope Foundation for a long time. I visited the projects and the poeple they assist in Bunamweri Uganda, they have done an amazing job. They have brought clean water, established a clinic and a school for the people, without the effort of Father and SSOHF these things could never have happened. Their generosity has also helped me to assist and do projects for the needy in my own area. Thank you Fr. Dennis, SSOHF and a big thank you to all the donors and volunteers.

I’ve been to Mpigi Uganda and seen the work of this charity. They are empowering the local people to bring themselves out of poverty. They have laid the groundwork for a sustainable improvement in the lives of many people. Their future projects look to do more of the same. None of the board of directors are co
Or dated and so 100% of donations go directly to the people of Mpigi. Please consider donating today!
