Pathfinder Receives $35,000 from CREDO Mobile to Advance Sexual and Reproductive Health Worldwide
As we have shared in the past, it's supporters like you that help Pathfinder continue our work providing lifesaving sexual and reproductive health services around the globe.
Pathfinder was recently notified that CREDO Mobile will donate $35,075 to our programs to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights in 2014. CREDO has donated more than $76 million to organizations committed to social change since the company was founded in 1985.
Pathfinder was nominated by CREDO customers and chosen among hundreds of nonprofits to be featured as one of forty groups eligible in 2013 to receive funding. We are thrilled to be awarded CREDO funds and would like to extend warm thanks to all of our supporters who responded to our calls for votes and support. As we have shared in the past, it’s supporters like you that help Pathfinder continue our work providing lifesaving sexual and reproductive health services around the globe.
This is the third time that Pathfinder has been selected to receive funds generated by CREDO mobile, long distance, and credit card customers throughout the year. CREDO supports progressive organizations in their fight for social change by donating a percentage of their customers' fees at no additional cost to members.
You can learn more about CREDO's donations program on their website.

“Globally, this marginalized population of young women has unique needs and rights that need to be addressed and acknowledged,” said Callie Simon, a technical advisor for adolescent sexual and reproductive health with Pathfinder International. “Married adolescent girls have so little power and decision-making over their bodies, over their choices, [and] over their lives."

The project aims to reduce threats to biodiversity conservation and ecosystem degradation in the Lake Victoria Basin while increasing access to family planning and sexual and reproductive health services.
