On Sunday, May 28th, Montreal will witness hundreds of Canadians walking together to fundraise and bring awareness to fight global poverty.

The 33rd annual walk is to take place in 10 cities this spring with over 40,000 participants unified with the cause.

The World Partnership Walk is a one of a kind humanitarian engagement — an impressive feat, a grass roots initiative, the best of its kind that operates completely on volunteer staff and collects donations to end global poverty and empower girls around the world.

“Supporting the World Partnership Walk is in line with the values we promote within all of our projects, which is to empower women and girls in order to better lives and communities around the world,” said Almas Jiwani, President of the Emeritus UN Women National Committee Canada (UNWNCC) and CEO of the Almas Jiwani Foundation (AJF). The global leader has participated in previous walks; independently and with the UNWNCC in both Ottawa and Montreal.
