I know of the commitment of the staff and volunteers at Stepping Stones International; recently had the opportunity to visit with Tinny Seitei and learn from her about the impact Stepping Stones has on the children and the community. It was heartwarming to hear her stories. Impressive that contractors who come to Botswana want to do what they can to help the community.

This program has been well planed and implemented with intelligence and experience gained in the area it suports. I know some of the people behind this organization and can honestly say that I have never ment a more dedicated group in my life. The love and passion the staff and administration have, both fo the children in the program and for those that have graduated from the program, is evident when talking to or when receiving emails from them. The work they put in to making it the exceptional program it is give me the confidence that my donation is reaching children in need and helping these children build a better life for themselves.

We are about to provide funds to SSI to bring their school-based peer education intervention to our project. We selected SSI because of the excellent work they do and for their cost efficiency. SSI is one of the leading local NGOs of Botswana and contributes greatly to the betterment of the country's young people. My only hope is that it can expand its work nationwide.
