"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Help us educate, empower, and inspire vulnerable children in Botswana to thrive from childhood to adulthood.
Step Up’s Achievers between 10-18 years old, 60 percent of whom are girls, come from communities affected by HIV, poverty, unemployment, alarming school dropout rates and overall apathy. These are the children who most need our support so birthplace doesn’t have to determine their future. We know investing in girls’ education improves child, household and community outcomes. Let's invest in the potential of young girls so we can create strong women with the power to change communities.

About The Organization:
Step Up International is a nonprofit organization on a mission to educate, inspire, and empower all children to achieve their full potential. Going beyond the classroom, our ACCESS Education Initiative (All Children Can Excel and Succeed with Support) provides the experiential learning opportunities for our Achievers to cultivate the social-emotional and 21st century skills – critical thinking, creative, communication and collaboration - necessary to excel in school and the community.
Our child-centered approach helps Achievers develop the confidence, resilience, and self-reliance to lead healthy and productive lives.
