  • Stepping Stones

    Stepping Stones is a non-profit organization registered both in Hong Kong and Mainland China (Shanghai). Founded in 2006, Stepping Stones was originally established to organize volunteer teachers to lead English classes in Shanghai’s primary schools for children of migrant workers. These schools can be found in urban centers across China and often struggle to provide a reasonable standard of English instruction to its students due to limited resources. Over the years, Stepping Stones has expanded its activities to include a wide range of programs which focus on children’s education and health, all with the shared mission of improving the education and general welfare of disadvantaged children across China.
