Population Connection is proud to support a small but growing number of partner organizations working to increase access to public health and family planning services. Since 2016, we have served as grant makers to small, highly-effective organizations working on the ground in their local communities to offer programs and services that contribute to stabilizing global population.
Population Connection’s focus has always been, and continues to be, education and advocacy efforts. Successful outcomes ultimately rely on service providers to offer the family planning and community building programs that represent the “final step” in our shared work to make the world a more just and sustainable place for everyone. Their missions and program work align closely with Population Connection’s mission and values. We view our support of these partners as a natural extension of the work we do every day. If you have additional questions about this program, or the partner organizations featured below, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
