StStWCFrontCoverEngThis is our latest training programme in the Stepping Stones family. Developed by lead author Gill Gordon, with a team of writers and researchers from Tanzania, Kenya and UK, Stepping Stones with Children consists of a training manual for facilitators, a DVD of accompanying films made by participants (and brief overview documentaries) and a counsellors’ guide.

The package was developed by Salamander Trust in close cooperation with our partner, PASADA, and the pilot workshop participants, in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It has been funded by Comic Relief and is published by Practical Action Publishing.

The programme consists of 29 sessions designed for use by children affected by AIDS, aged 5-8, 9-14 and their caregivers. It seeks to support them all to overcome the challenges they face in their lives and build on their strength and resilience, to create happier, healthier and safer ways of being.
