India West | AKF’s 20th Anniversary Partnership Walk in San Francisco Set for Oct. 19Fremont, Calif. — The Aga Khan Foundation’s 20th anniversary Partnership Walk at Central Park, Lake Elizabeth, here Oct. 19 will mark the 100th walk since the very first Walk in Los Angeles in 1995, attracting over 440,000 participants over almost two decades.

Partnership Walks across the nation is an initiative of the Aga Khan Foundation USA to raise funds and awareness to help vulnerable communities in Africa and Asia to create long-term solutions to overcome poverty.

In addition to the Walk and Run (5K, 1K and 100-yard costume dash for kids), there will be fun, entertainment and prizes.

One of the most inspiring features of the 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.

Participants, sponsors, donors and volunteers of Partnership Walk are part of a worldwide movement mobilizing around the universal Millennium Development Goals to reduce extreme poverty and hunger by half by 2015.

Aga Khan Foundation takes a long-term, self-help approach to help communities lift themselves out of poverty. Contributions to the foundation can create opportunities for girls in Afghanistan to go to school, for farmers in Mali to feed their families, and mothers in India to lead healthy lives.
