Our VAP – Celebrating 17 Years of Volunteer Excellence

Stepping Stones, a beacon of community service dedicated to ensuring fair education to all children across China, recently hosted its much-anticipated Volunteer Appreciation Party (VAP) to honour and celebrate the dedicated individuals who contribute their time and effort to various programs. The event, held in the spirit of gratitude and camaraderie, provided a platform for program leads to express their appreciation for the invaluable contributions of their volunteers and to take a step back and appreciate all that was accomplished this season. 

The joyous occasion was marked by the enthusiasm of program leaders as they celebrated the unique stories and accomplishments of each volunteer from the past season. It was a heartening experience to witness the bonds formed between volunteers, program leaders, and and the kids that they helped, highlighting the positive impact of their collaborative efforts on the community.

One of the highlights of the Stepping Stones Volunteer Appreciation Party  was the thrilling Lucky Draw segment. Volunteers eagerly awaited their chance to win fantastic prizes, generously provided by our incredible sponsors.

This year’s VAP held special significance as Stepping Stones marked its 17th birthday. Reflecting on the organisation’s journey, there was a palpable sense of pride in the room as attendees acknowledged the collective achievements and milestones reached over the years. From empowering individuals to fostering a sense of community, Stepping Stones has consistently lived up to its mission.

We want to express our special gratitude to our invaluable party sponsors. Our successful VAP, from the delicious food to the beautiful cozy venue and exciting prizes, was made possible through the generosity of our dedicated party supporters.
