Was there a moment when the importance of Pathfinder's work really hit home for you?
When I saw some of the stories of individual women on the website such as that of a woman named Georgette, who was able to exercise choice in her life because of Pathfinder’s service, I knew that this was an organization with values that matched my own.

What's one thing people often ask you when you say you work at Pathfinder?
People ask me where we get our support. I describe our diversity in funding sources—the US Government, private foundations, governments of other countries, and individual donors. Our broad base of support helps us stay strong and flexible to respond to those who need services most.
