Join our Victoria Multi-faith Society team for the World Partnership Walk campaign and help us end global poverty.
The World Partnership Walk is Canada’s largest annual event dedicated to raising funds and increasing awareness to fight global poverty. It’s a fantastic opportunity to engage our communities and networks in an important cause. The money we raise together will support Aga Khan Foundation Canada’s international development projects in Asia and Africa to enable families and communities to lift themselves out of poverty through access to quality education, life-saving health services, food security and improved livelihoods.
We are looking to grow our team and boost the positive impact we can make in our global community. Together, we have a valuable opportunity to be a force of change. Join us and let’s make a difference!
