There are 1.8 billion young people in the world today. Pathfinder designs and implements sexual and reproductive health programs with and for young people, helping them to realize their fullest potential and make decisions about their bodies and their lives. Pathfinder has more than 20 youth programs in 15 countries.
Program Highlight: Act With Her
Pathfinder’s Act With Her program engages adolescent girls, boys, parents/caregivers, and local leaders to forge health, education, and social pathways which adolescent girls and boys need to thrive during their transition to adulthood. With a focus on very young adolescent girls (ages 10-14), community members engage in discussions around a wide variety of subjects, including puberty and menstruation, health, nutrition, education, safety, gender, communication, and economic empowerment.
