Building a future where we all thrive together.

AKFC partners with Canadians and communities in Africa and Asia to build better futures together. Committed to breaking the cycle of poverty, we help build strong, healthy, and inclusive communities where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Held annually across the country, the World Partnership Walk is Canada’s largest public movement dedicated to raising funds and awareness to fight global poverty.

Our Approach

We are stronger together. We work with communities, businesses, and governments to find innovative solutions to global challenges. We invest in high quality institutions and systems that anchor social, economic, and cultural progress over the long term. We promote inclusive development that enables women and men to unlock their own potential, sparking transformative change.

Our Work

“…[O]ur responsibility to improve the quality of life in places throughout the world where that quality is unsatisfactory – fighting poverty, improving health and education, expanding opportunity – [is] the first manifestation of a healthy pluralistic ethic.”
