Last Year's Highlights
4,500 participated in the Dallas Partnership Walk to demonstrate their support for ending global poverty, at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, TX. The Dallas 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 $790,000. 100% of the funds raised at Partnership Walk go directly to projects supported by the Foundation; not a cent is spent on administration.
The Walk had lively entertainment and activities for all ages celebrating the diversity of world cultures. Participants enjoyed interactive exhibits spotlighting the Foundation’s practical solutions for alleviating poverty from Afghanistan to Zanzibar. It also attracted many high-profile guests, civic leaders and local media personalities, including:
- Beth Van Duyne, Mayor of Irving, Texas.
- Arezow Doost, reporter for CBS-11.
- Theresa Woodard, reporter for WFAA.
