Our Goals

A quote from Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia

"Reducing poverty is not something this government can
do alone. The private sectors - big and small businesses- are the engine
for growth and employment. Our people must seize opportunities.
I'm sure they will do this."

SSL aims to improve the economic situation and thus
enhance the self-reliance of Liberians by developing
and promoting entrepreneurship in agriculture and fisheries.

SSL invests in the strength and vision of individual Liberians.

SSL will achieve this by:
1. Investing in the increased productivity of local entrepreneurs
     through knowledge transfer and the provision of micro-credits.
2. Investing in supply chain development to promote and increase sales.

    "At last a foundation that is committed to nurturing local knowledge in Liberia yet sees that a little support is needed here and there to connect the right people with good business ideas in the region to make dreams come true. Also what’s good and distinctive: the foundation goes directly to those areas where local and / or international NGOs do not go ... With a limited local infrastructure "quick and easy results" are hindered. However, the Stepping Stone Foundation doesn’t let itself be discouraged by this because in these poorest and least accessible regions, the community awareness is greatest and the various projects will thus be of great community value. – Mayke Harding
