Girl 2 Woman

Pathfinder International is a non-profit organization working to increase access to reproductive health care through the creation of sustainable community-based programs.

For more than 50 years, in more than 120 countries, they have collaborated with governments, non-governmental organizations, community groups and faith-based organizations to make contraception available, provide services necessary for safe childbirth and healthy families, prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS and treat infected individuals, and advocate for sound reproductive policies in the United States and abroad.

Help Pathfinder International raise 1 million dollars to improve the lives of girls and women around the world by viewing the video Girl2Woman and sharing it with your friends and family. It doesn't cost you anything. Every time the video is shared, a generous donor will contribute a dollar to this remarkable organization. (Email addresses are never collected or used for solicitation purposes.)

$20 keeps a girl in school for one month in Ethiopia. $50 supplies 100 Bangladeshi women with a month of oral contraceptive. $100 trains one community health worker in India to provide basic family planning services. $250 provides training for 10 skilled birth attendants in Tanzania. And 90 cents of every dollar donated to Pathfinder International goes directly to programs.
