What's one thing people often ask you when you say you work at Pathfinder?
Most people haven't heard of Pathfinder, but when I tell them about our mission, they engage in conversation very quickly. Imagine the impact we could have if we are able to get the word out that there are organizations that are committed to providing safe and effective reproductive health services to those most in need around the world!
What's your favorite part about working at Pathfinder?
Providing access to safe and effective contraceptive services and ensuring maternal health are key to fostering economic stability of families in developing countries. It's hard to talk about improving the lives of people in the poorest regions of the world without considering the importance of family planning. Working at Pathfinder means that I am contributing in a small way to improving the lives of families around the world.
