At PATH, we use MacGyver-worthy ingenuity to turn everyday objects into lifesavers for women and children in the world’s poorest places.
We passionately believe that survival shouldn’t depend on where a person lives, how reliable their electrical grid is, or whether they can afford health care. So, we work with partners to boil down sophisticated technologies to their essence, creating easy-to-use, affordable alternatives designed specifically for low-resource settings.
Here’s a peek at some of the ordinary objects PATH uses in extraordinary ways to save lives:
1. Bike pump
3. Water bottle
4. Car battery +
7. Cell phone
Some of these simple, brilliant tools are already on the market and in the field; others are still in our pipeline—along with dozens more. It takes time—and money—to get these lifesaving solutions to the people who need them.
That’s why we need your help. When you make a gift to PATH, you fuel creativity and collaboration that make life healthier for women and children around the world. Your support is crucial–please give to PATH today.
