Step by Stones as the name suggests is meant to help fellow special needs parents grow in the journey that they have been called to make. We hope to achieve our objectives and create within our society individuals who can be stepping stones to one another.
- Nanny Training on Behavior Management (in Special Needs Children)
This is a workshop geared towards nannies/caregivers that take care of our children with special needs. It is to help them understand the ABC’s of behavior in a child with special needs.
- Parents Meet- up
This will be a meet and greet opportunity for parents only. It will be an opportunity for people to meet physically since we all know each other from our online profiles. It will also be a chance for parents to interact and exchange ideas on how to better raise our children with special needs.
- Acceptance Workshop
This was held on 22nd July 2017 and it targeted parents of children with special needs in middle income areas. The workshop was facilitated by psychologist Lunar Odawa.

We raise awareness on rare diseases and the impact it has on our society. We co-organize Rare Disease Day which is held yearly on the last day of February. We have raised awareness on the same since 2014. You can get more information about that here
- Young Athletes Program
In collaboration with Special Olympics Kenya, Step by Stones is working on a program that will bring together young children with intellectual disabilities through play. These children, aged between two years to ten years will have a chance to play and interact with their peers to help them attain key developmental milestones in early childhood.
- Regina Caeli Catholic Church Special Needs Ministry
We partnered with Regina Caeli Catholic Church and advised them on how to make the compound disability friendly. Parishioners with children with special needs were encouraged to bring their children for Sunday school where they were taken care of as the parents attended the main mass.
