July 13, 2016 - Connecting Canadian Communities for 32 Years

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.

It’s not too late to join our Walk community in the fight against global poverty.
