Aga Khan Foundation Canada's Victoria World Partnership Walk raises $150,000More than 1,000 people came out for Victoria’s World Partnership Walk on Sunday.

The popular walk, now in its 32nd year in Victoria, is aimed at ending global poverty, one footstep and fundraising pledge at a time.

Victoria’s walk is one of 10 walks taking place across Canada this weekend.

It’s the largest fundraiser in the country aimed at reducing global poverty.

More than 1.5 billion people, including many children, live in poverty.

The World Partnership Walk has raised more than $95 million in the last three decades, with all funds going directly to programs run by the Aga Khan Foundation aimed at improving health and education.

“It’s all about reaching across the world, tapping someone on the shoulder and telling them, you matter,” says Victoria World Partnership Walk chair Zen Tharani. “We don’t know you but you matter because we are Canadians and we are here to help you and this is how we put our values into action.”
