Campaign for World Partnership Walk underway

Khalil Shariff

Yesterday’s awareness event about the World Partnership Walk at AbeBooks’ headquarters attracted almost 50 people. Khalil Z. Shariff, CEO of the Aga Khan Foundation Canada, was the keynote speaker and he spoke with passion about how the funds raised by the Walk helps tackle poverty in places like Africa and Asia.

The Aga Khan Foundation Canada is all about empowerment – empowering the people struggling against poverty to set up their own clean water systems, to set up their own micro-businesses, and to have access to education.

Our own Megan Hamlet had her first exposure to the media too with a TV interview about her awareness trip to Africa later this summer. Thanks to everyone who attended the event. The important date for us is May 31 when our local leg of the World Partnership Walk takes place in Victoria.
