Mission Statement

SSI’s Mission is to unlock the potential of orphaned and vulnerable adolescents (ages 12-18+) by nurturing their mental, physical and emotional well-being and creating realizable opportunities for them to become self-sufficient.

Description

Stepping Stones International’s first program was implemented in Mochudi, Kgatleng District, Botswana. We provide an after school program for youth ages 12-18+, with outreach to the families and the community. The program was designed with input from community members, Ministry of Local Government, Ministry of Education and the District Multi-sectoral AIDS Committee. In addition, Stepping Stones International conducted a literature review in the region and a needs assessment, interviewing caregivers and youth in the district, which influenced the program design.

SSI is a registered non-governmental, non-profit organisation in Botswana (CO 2006/6619) and 501(C)(3) in the United States, established in 2006, in Mochudi, Kgatleng District, 40 km from Gaborone. SSI’s program has demonstrated proven results in Botswana and has been presented at international conferences. The model program is holistic and addresses socio-economic development in Africa while encouraging and assisting improvement in education.
