From the producers and authors of the groundbreaking book and film series Half the Sky: Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, comes A Path Appears, a unique and essential documentary series addressing the devastating impact of poverty and the ripple effects that follow including: sex trafficking, teen pregnancy, gender-based violence, child slavery and the effective solutions being forged to combat them.

Most importantly, you will be inspired by the resilience of the human spirit and the ability of caring, proven interventions to have a lasting and powerful impact.
