fundraising ideas

    Join us for the 6th Annual Walk for Literacy on Saturday, September 28, 2013.

   Walk for Literacy is an annual event that raises funds for and awareness about Barakat’s mission and                programs. Barakat is dedicated to providing exemplary basic education in Afghanistan and Pakistan: we        advance literacy and increase access to secondary education, particularly in girls and women.

   The scenic walk through Cambridge is a fun event and a unique opportunity for a diverse community of        walkers to come together to support a worthy cause – educating thousands of women and children                without  access to quality basic education! In 2012, Barakat’s five schools and literacy programs served            more than  2,600 students.

   Since its inception in 2008, the Walk has grown to attract almost 1,000 walkers and has raised over                $72,000.

   Walk Registration starts at 9 am, and the walk begins at 10 am from Cambridge Common. All walkers          will receive breakfast, lunch and a *FREE T-Shirt.

   Why We Need Your Support

   Barakat’s goal this year is to have 500 walkers and raise $50,000. 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:

   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!

   *Barakat will order T-shirts only after 200 walkers have registered.
