I took some of my first steps at the World Partnership Walk, just like my sister and my cousins have. Thanks to generous people like you these steps have been some of the most important ones we've taken in our lives.
World Partnership Walk is an initiative of Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC), an international development agency and registered Canadian charity. It is Canada’s largest movement dedicated to increasing awareness of our collective interest in addressing global poverty and inequity, and raising funds to support important programs like:
- literacy classes and entrepreneurship training for women in Afghanistan;
- better quality education for girls and boys in East Africa, and
- employment opportunities in Pakistan and Mozambique.
My cousins, friends, and I have learned that these are what are known as true community development projects, and that even when the kids in those places grow up, our contributions will continue to benefit them and their families. And since we're all connected in this world, the healthier and happier those friends are, the happier we all are.
I would greatly appreciate your support. Every contribution matters and every dollar raised will help make a difference.
