About this non-profit:

In this Visionaries episode, you'll travel with Dr. Annie Mathew, project manager for one of the nation's leading reproductive rights organizations. Dr. Mathew's assignment is to introduce birth control to an Islamic fundamentalist village in India where more women die from pregnancy than from old age-but birth control is a religious violation. You'll also travel to Kenya and meet local groups working to protect their families from AIDS. You'll meet volunteers committed to providing care against all obstacles. Join us and find out how social change is possible when locations are remote and topics are taboo.
