Barakat’s 6th Annual Walk a Success

Barakat’s 6th Annual Walk for Literacy on September 28th was a huge success, raising more funds than all previous walks! Over 100 people came together on a beautiful fall day at the Cambridge Common to walk to promote Barakat’s mission of improving access to education in Afghanistan and Pakistan. All the proceeds will benefit our literacy programs for girls and women, and we’d like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated! We’d also like to thank our generous corporate sponsors and in-kind donors for their support: 

  • altLandry & Arcari: Oriental Rugs and Carpeting
  • 90.9 WBUR
  • International Design Guild
  • Irving House of Harvard
  • Eastern Bank
  • Dean’s Beans
  • Let’s Talk Language School
  • Foodie’s Urban Market
  • Dunkin Donuts
  • When Pig’s Fly Breads

The date for next year’s Walk for Literacy is already set for September 27, 2014, so mark your calendars! We plan to host the walk in multiple cities next year, turning our 7th Annual Walk into a national event. Please help us spread the word. We hope to see you next year!
