This year Foundation Beyond Belief is sponsoring the Pathfinders Project, a year-long volunteer journey that will take four humanist volunteers across the world to work in education, clean water, human rights, and construction projects, and to evaluate programs for inclusion in a future Humanist Service Corps (HSC). The HSC will be a proud moment for all nonbelievers. Like the Peace Corps, the HSC will serve the cause of peace by living and working in developing countries, but with a focus on encouraging the generosity and compassion of secular humanists.
Here’s where you come in. In addition to fundraising by the four individuals making this trip and the support of major donors, Pathfinders Project needs $16,150 to close the funding gap for this project.
Contributions will fund the following needs:
Project Donations (for construction materials, etc.): $6,250
Pathfinder Stipends: $400
Contingency & Misc: $1,000
The four Pathfinders will have a big impact on the areas that they are working in. The initial project has three primary goals:
Complete clean water, education, and sustainability projects in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
Engage in dialogue across religious, cultural, and ethnic boundaries.
Assess countries and partner organizations with the ultimate goal of selecting one site for launching the Humanist Service Corps.
