PATHFINDER provides creative solutions to enable the world’s most vulnerable through a three-pronged approach: by simultaneously influencing academics, policy, and social entrepreneurship. Our vision is to enable local social entrepreneurs so that they may provide for themselves, their families and their communities. We enable them through crucial strategy and management consulting solutions. We work to engage financial opportunities with these social entrepreneurs, thereby connecting resources to much needed requirements, efficiently. Knowing that these isolated services are not enough on their own, we also contribute to academic enrichment, and we advocate for policy changes.
While we are eager to work with a multitude of internationally accepted causes, our primary focus is on perpetuating creative solutions to protect and enable the world’s most vulnerable.
We are committed to working towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. While all of our current projects have objectives that align with one or more Goals, we are dedicated to the overarching agenda of realizing global human rights, achieving gender equality, and peace and security for all.
