Corporate Partnership: Pathfinder International

Coaches Across Continents and Pathfinder International announce a unique partnership that uses Purposeful Play and Education Outside the Classroom to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights. The first project has begun in Tanzania and includes the development of a Purposeful Play Curriculum that addresses four main components: Knowledge of sexual and reproductive rights; Household environment; Community responsibility; and Conservation; as well as an Educational Hub for 20 key leaders to be held in Zanzibar, and local programs in selected Tanzanian communities.

Pathfinder is a global leader in the advancement of sexual and reproductive health and rights, and Coaches Across Continents is the 2018 Winner of the Beyond Sport Global Impact Award. The combined expertise of these two organizations will allow the program to provide resources and education specifically tailored towards teenage girls, boys, and young families. The Trotula Fund is a proud supporter of this collaboration and the first project in Tanzania.

“We are excited to be supporting the partnership of Coaches Across Continents and Pathfinder International, two organizations that have a long and rich history in working with adolescents and young people in Tanzania. Being able to couple sport, athletics, and sexual and reproductive health care to promote young people’s ability to choose their own future is a great opportunity. We view this as the first step of many in this partnership.”  

– Judy Kahrl, The Trotula Fund

“The Coaches Across Continents collaboration with Pathfinder International is a groundbreaking partnership that will advance the lives of children, women and entire communities in Tanzania. The innovative and effective methods of CAC coupled with Pathfinder International’s technical ability to enhance sexual and reproductive rights is an inspiring union. The collaboration exemplifies their authentic commitment to progressing human rights globally. I am honored to support this partnership in fighting what is with what ought to be.” 

– Margaret “Midge” Purce, Professional Soccer Player for the Portland Thorns of the National Women’s Soccer League, former All-Star for Harvard Women’s Soccer, and proud Coaches Across Continents Supporter.

“This is an exciting moment for Coaches Across Continents. Working with Pathfinder on this new project will enrich communities throughout Tanzania and around the world in ways we’ve yet to see through other partnerships. The collective impact of our resources and experience in the fields of education, global health, sport and gender equity will see unique strategies in play to advance several UN Sustainable Development Goals such as 3: Health and Wellbeing, 4: Quality Education and 5: Gender Equality. We are thrilled to be at the center of this transformative program.” 

– Nora Dooley, ASK for Choice and Community and Government Partnerships Manager, Coaches Across Continents
