Date: Sunday, September 22, 2013
Location: Railroad Park, Birmingham AL
Last year 1,950 turned out to participate the in 2012 Birmingham Partnership Walk at Railroad Park to show their support for ending global poverty. The Birmingham 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. This year’s Walk raised over $300,000. 100% of the funds raised at Partnership Walk go directly to projects supported by the Foundation; not a cent is spent on administration.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and making the 2012 event such a success!

A Birmingham Partnership Walk delegation meets with Mayor William Bell
On July 25, 2012 a delegation from Birmingham Partnership Walk met with Mayor William Bell of Birmingham and invited him to join the 2012 Walk as keynote speaker. The delegation (Nizar Batada, Anisha Rahim, Karim Budhwani, Rozina Karmali, Salima Mulji, and Rehman Rahim) thanked the mayor and the City of Birmingham for their continued support of AKF and Partnership Walk. The mayor offered the support of his office to ensure that the Walk is successful again this year. The mayor heard plans for this year’s Walk and new AKF projects, and received a framed picture of him at the podium from last year’s Partnership Walk.
