FBB sponsors the Pathfinders Project yearlong service trip


Pathfinders ProjectFoundation Beyond Belief has some very exciting news: We’re extremely proud to sponsor the Pathfinders Project, a yearlong humanist service trip.

Our mission, a mission we value very deeply, is to encourage secular humanists to make a difference in the world. The Pathfinders Project, which will bring humanists together and take them around the world, exemplifies that mission. We couldn’t not support it!

Pathfinders will travel to Asia, Latin America, and Africa, working to build sustainably, educate, and develop clean water projects. In fact, you may recognize one of the stops: Kasese Humanist Primary School, one of our beneficiaries last year. Furthermore, one of the goals of the trip is to access possible partners in setting up a Humanist Action: Ghana—a long-term agenda for Pathfinders Project and Foundation Beyond Belief. Conor Robinson, director of Pathfinders, explains his goals:Pathfinders Project

“With both Pathfinders Project and the Humanist Action: Ghana, my goal is to develop projects that maximize our contribution as non-specialist volunteers, allow us to work directly with the community, and have a sustainable impact through the incorporation of community education and empowerment at every stage of planning and implementation.”

The project is open to adults who speak a foreign language—particularly Spanish or French—and applicants are encouraged to have prior service experience. Applications are due February 1, 2013. More information can be found here.
