What's New at Stepping Stones!


  • Stepping Stones!

Stepping Stones is a not-for-profit charitable organisation registered in Shanghai with a mission to improve the education and general welfare of disadvantaged children in China.

Stepping Stones works with expatriate and local Chinese volunteers to teach English in Shanghai’s migrant schools and community centres. Stepping Stones currently recruits, trains, coordinates, and supports around 350 volunteers to teach 4,500 students in 30 migrant schools and community centres in Shanghai. We also regularly take groups of volunteers to teach English to children in rural schools outside of Shanghai and run other charitable projects including the provision of eye care.

This programme offers a rewarding way to get to know another side of China’s society and to contribute in a meaningful way to the education of under-privileged children.

Stepping Stones is proud to be sponsored by Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation this year.


Stepping Stones is honoured to have received a United Way Worldwide grant on behalf of the generosity of Target Foundation.
