2015 Walk for Literacy

2015 Walk for Literacy

Join us for the 8th Annual Walk for Literacy on Saturday, September 26, 2015. Barakat’s Walk for Literacy is an annual event that raises both awareness and funds for our important mission of educating and empowering children and women in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Barakat is dedicated to providing exemplary basic education in Afghanistan and Pakistan: we advance literacy and increase access to secondary education, particularly for girls and women.The scenic walk through Cambridge is a fun and unique event, where a diverse community of walkers come together to support a worthy cause – educating thousands of women and children without access to quality basic education! In 2013 – 2014, more than 2,500 children (over 40 percent of them girls) graduated from Barakat’s five schools. An additional 544 girls and women attended our lower-level and higher-level literacy programs in Afghanistan.

Since its inception in 2008, the Walk has grown to attract almost 1,200 walkers and has raised over $120,000.
Walk Registration starts at 9 am, and the Walk begins at 10 am from Winthrop Park in Harvard Square. All walkers will receive breakfast, lunch and a *FREE T-Shirt.

Why We Need Your Support

Barakat’s goal this year is to have 300 walkers and raise $35,000. With YOUR help, we know we can DO IT!
Every step counts and so does every dollar! Your participation as a walker, or as a donor to support the Walk, will help us educate and empower more women and children in Afghanistan and Pakistan! Your support makes the following programs possible:
•   $60 sends 1 girl to 1 year of a literacy program.
•   $250 helps 1 girl to 1 year of high school.
•   $750 sends 8 students to 1 year of elementary school.
•   $1,500 will send 6 girls to 1 year of high school (tuition, uniform & school supplies).

Pre–registration is $30. Registration at the door is $40. Once you register, set a fundraising goal for yourself or for a team of friends, family, classmates, or colleagues.

Thank you and see you at the Walk!
