Partnership Walk takes place in five major U.S. cities annually and attracts over 250,000 participants and raises well over $30 million. Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. (AKF USA) is introducing innovative, locally-led solutions to address the root causes of poverty in some of the most vulnerable communities in AFRICA and ASIA. By raising funds locally in the Aga Khan Foundation concentrates on decreasing poverty by improving the following necessities: health, education, rural development, environment and strengthening non – governmental organizations and community based organizations to build local capacity that leads toward self – reliance.
We CAN end global poverty and reverse its devastating effects. Partnership Walk is a great opportunity to spend a day with friends and family, enjoying global entertainment and interactive exhibits and games while showing your solidarity in the worldwide movement to end global poverty. 100% of ALL FUNDS RAISED GO DIRECTLY to Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. projects that empower vulnerable individuals and communities in the developing world to lift themselves out of poverty and build a better, more secure future.
HOW TO VOLUNTEER:
There are many ways to support the cause! Simply registering and attending the walk exemplifies your care for people in third world countries.
