Education and Training

Stepping Stones has been providing college and university bursaries to dozens of young people living in rural West Bengal since 1998 with 12 young people per year being educated and trained, many going on to be teachers or doing some form of social work. Some of our students and former students now work for Stepping Stones taking education into villages where we have taught hundreds of children over the years. Some of our students teach the boys and girls in Bethel and Bethany Homes on a daily basis.We are enabling women to start their own business by providing seamstress training and bursaries with interest free loans for sewing machines and materials.
