The original Stepping Stones programme was held in Uganda in 1994. Over the years, there have been many different adaptations, translations and evaluations of the Manual. Read our FAQs and Adaptation Guidelines here.  We can also link you to accredited trainers who can support you with Stepping Stones adaptations and training. Below are the Stepping Stones materials. Both programmes are published by Practical Action Publishing.   Stepping Stones & Stepping Stones Plus

A wholly revised and updated version of the original, Stepping Stones and Stepping Stones Plus (published 15 June 2016) This is designed for adolescents, aged 15 and upwards through adulthood.



Stepping Stones with childrenStepping Stones with Children (published 15 April 2016). This is a new programme designed for children aged 5-8, 9-14 and their caregivers.


If you are considering using either the revised original Stepping Stones and Stepping Stones Plus or the new Stepping Stones with Children materials in your project, please ensure you budget for enough manuals for your facilitators. We recommend you use four manuals for a team of four facilitators for the original programme; and six manuals for a team of three facilitators and co-facilitators for the new Stepping Stones with Children programme. The manuals are sturdy, long lasting and very modestly priced. All profits from sales go towards mitigating the increasing digital divide between those in the world who have access to resources and those who do not.
