When I was traveling in Africa as a guest of the African Women's Development Fund, I had the honor of also visitng a Pathfinder project in Nairobi, Kenya. I saw first hand how many women (and the men and children in their lives) were being helped. Seeing women with various stages of HIV/AIDS really expanded my understanding of what "maternal heath" encompasses.

The Great!

Pathfinder's work supports its belief that every woman, man, girl and boy has the right to a health life supported by reproductive health and family planning services. Its respect for the rights and dignity of the people it serves are apparent throughout all its programs. Its results have been shown by the decreasing birth rates and rates of maternal mortality in the areas where it works in the developing world. Its creative and innovative programs live up to its name; it creates new paths in the arena of reproductive health.

The Great!

I have visited Pathfinder projects over the years iI have seen innovative programs which have created social change to delay marriage and first pregnancy for young girls and support women and men in their decisions about when and how many children to have. What inspires me the most is to learn how women's lives have been changed so that they not only can feed and care for the children they choose to have, but also when freed from numerous pregnancies, they choose to work to create healthier communities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help it become a household name in the US so that private funding could increase and allow Pathfinder to do even more of its innovative programming.

Pathfinder International works towards empowering poor, disenfranchised women in one of the most effective ways I can imagine: through reproductive health care and education programs tailored to the need of a community.

Pathfinder works on the ground to help provide services, education,
and community building to women. Most importantly of all--and really the crucial reason I support them so wholeheartedly--is that Pathfinder does not import western doctors and educators, but trains community members to lead programs--an incalculably important technique that serves to strengthen existing communities.

In addition, Pathfinder tailors its programs to the needs of regions, adapting to whatever a given area needs most (be it HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women's health clinics, etc).

I discovered Pathfinder through a friend of my parents who has been involved with them for years. After she invited me to one informational reception, I got very excited, and told her emphatically that I wanted to get involved. Before long, this friend helped a number of us younger people who had expressed interest in Pathfinder form a youth board, through which we have been planning informational and fundraising events. Pathfinder is incredibly strong on the ground, but word about their work needs help getting out. The fact that a dozen of us young people banded together to try to help Pathfinder grow is a testament to this inspiring organization.

The Great!
