Pathways to Children's Projects

 Pathways To Children’s projects focus on education and health care of poverty stricken children and their mothers. We work with reliable, responsible, and time tested in country partners who ensure our projects are highly functioning and sustainable. Pathways board is an “hands on” board that is involved in the decision-making process of both funding and management of projects.  Pathways evaluates projects using measurable benchmarks. Our partners supply us with extensive quarterly financial and progress reports. This, plus regularly visiting our projects and bringing volunteers, some who are experts in the fields of education and health care, helps us to make sure projects are running effectively and smoothly.
