Review for Pathfinder International, Watertown, MA, USA
I have been a supporter of Pathfinder International for more than 15 years. I became engaged because I believe that having access to family planning/reproductive health care is a basic human right and that providing such services is the key to solving many of the BIG challenges facing our world today - challenges such as poverty, resource depletion, civil unrest and gender inequality - to name a few. Pathfinder operates in more than 20 developing countries with a high level of efficiency and effectiveness. I have seen the work - first hand - in Viet Nam, India, Ethiopia and Egypt. I was impressed - not only by the poverty and great need I saw - but also by the creative, common-sense approaches used by Pathfinder. In each community, programs are tailored to the local practices and customs, the vast majority of the workers are local, community leaders are engaged for support and every attempt is made to leave behind sustainable programs.
