Stepping Stones Evaluations

The Stepping Stones programme has been been evaluated with greater or less formal rigour in many different contexts around the world.

Below we share links to some of these evaluations – but by no means all of them.

If your organisation has conducted an evaluation of your Stepping Stones work, please share it with us in the interests of mutual learning.

Please also view other pages relevant to evaluation on this website.
