Orlando, Florida takes a step to end global poverty

Orlando, Florida takes a step to end global povertyORLANDO, FLORIDA, On Sunday, September 28, 2014, around 1,200 participants will walk to end global poverty in the annual Orlando Partnership Walk at Lake Eola Park. The Orlando Partnership Walk is an initiative of Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. (AKF USA) to raise awareness and funds that reduce poverty, hunger, illiteracy and poor health in Africa and Asia.

Last year’s Walk raised over $210,000. 100% of the funds raised at Partnership Walk go directly to projects supported by the Foundation; not a cent is spent on administration

The event is a day of fun for the whole family and one that Orlando residents look forward to every year. The Walk features lively entertainment and activities for all ages celebrating a rich diversity of cultures. One of the most inspiring features of Partnership Walk is the Village in Action, where participants can enjoy interactive exhibits spotlighting the Foundation’s practical solutions for alleviating poverty from Afghanistan to Zanzibar.

This year marks the 20th anniversary for Partnership Walk events, which will be held in nine major U.S. cities. Since 1995, PartnershipsInAction activities including the annual Partnership Walk and Golf events have attracted over 440,000 participants and raised over $63 million for poverty alleviation projects supported by AKF USA.
