My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Stepping Stones International, Salt Lake Cty, UT, USA
I am honored to write a brief and my honest review for Stepping Stones International (SSI).
I served at SSI for 27 months as a US - Peace Corps Volunteer.
SSI is an NGO that is committed on to three principles: 1) Transparency, 2) Good Governance and 3) Accountability to Donors.
Following on the above three broad principles, has increased the legitimacy and credibility of SSI's financial procedures, its effectiveness of its programs and has earned tremendous respect in the communities of Botswana and within the local and international donor agencies.
Good governance and self-regulatory initiatives and commitment to their principles are the most important drivers for this NGO, in bringing behavior change not only within the direct beneficiaries of SSI but overall in the local communities.
Accountability to it beneficiaries involves all its stakeholders in processes. SSI works in consultation with local communities by drawing on local skills and knowledge.
This NGO is known for investing its resources in its local staff empowering and ensuring professionalism in project designing and its execution for bringing the best to meet its local needs; increases local capacity and skills base, and increases the commitment of the community to support the project.
SSI creates a conducive and supportive working environment for existing staff and international volunteers who bring their expertise to this NGO. SSI is committed to its principles to help to improve the effectiveness of achieving its mission.
