Simpson Thomas & Associates was honoured to be a sponsor and to participate in the VIP breakfast of the World Partnership Walk on Sunday May 31.
The World Partnership Walk is Canada’s largest annual event raising money and awareness to end global poverty. An initiative of the Agha Khan Foundation Canada, funds raised by the World Partnership Walk support meaningful projects identified and implemented by local communities. Generally, these are projects that revitalize rural economies, ensure clean water and sanitation for underprivileged communities, strengthen community-based organizations and facilities, and help educate new generations of girls and women.
The world partnership walk began in 1985 with a small team of women in Vancouver who voluntarily started raising funds and walking to held end global poverty. 31 years later, the Walk has raised almost $90 million for international development programs and initiatives.
