Investing in Girls
On Monday, April 20, 2015, three runners in the Boston Marathon will race to help end global poverty and support the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF), which is honored to be a partner charity again this year. Inspired by a belief in our shared humanity to help end poverty, the Foundation is dedicated to helping communities in Asia and Africa improve their quality of life. The AKF Run Team members embody that commitment as they prepare to run 26.2 miles through Boston’s streets.
On Thursday, April 2, 2015, 150 golfers drove to the green while investing in long-term solutions to global poverty. The golfers raised an estimated net $170,000 for programs of the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) in the eighth annual Dallas Partnership Golf tournament, held at the Cowboys Country Club in Grapevine, Texas. The event is an initiative of the Foundation to raise awareness and funds for ending poverty and helping communities around the world build better futures together.
