Shajani in the Community

In 1985, a group of women in Vancouver came together to raise funds to support the work of AKFC. All had come from Africa or Asia and wanted to give back to the communities they left behind. They persuaded 1,000 other Canadians to join them in a walk to fight global poverty and raised $55,000. That first walk grew into an annual event, held in 10 cities across Canada with the support of tens of thousands of volunteers, corporate sponsors, and participants. Thirty-eight years later, the World Partnership Walk has raised more than $137 million – making it the largest event in Canada in support of international development.
