About Stepping Stones
Stepping Stones International (SSI) is a nonprofit organization located in Gabarone, Botswana. SSI is dedicated to empowering youth to become leaders of the next generation by nurturing their mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.
64% of youth ages 10-18 living in Botswana have been left orphaned and vulnerable by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. SSI has established an innovative after-school program to serve this vulnerable group. By creating a fostering environment SSI teaches the life skills needed to get them on the right path towards a hopeful future. Through education, community involvement and the arts, participating children are given the tools needed to become self sufficient.
This past year, SSI established programs which allow the youth to: collaborate in three youth-run business; work in a communal organic garden as well as engage in art, dance, and music programs. SSI creates a safe environment for the participants to express themselves, seek counseling and address challenges they’ve faced.
