On April 6th & 7th, the Aga Khan Foundation's Exhibition came to Hillcrest High School. The Aga Khan Foundation has worked with Canada and Canadians to sustainably improve the quality of life of poor, marginalized communities in Asia and Africa. The together Exhibition is an innovative, interactive and multi-sensory experience designed to spark conversations about the role that Canadians can play in reducing global poverty.
Students, staff, neighbouring schools, and community members were invited to walk through the Exhibit and ask questions about Canada's role in reducing global poverty. We had an amazing turnout, with multiple students coming back from the exhibit asking more questions and wanting to learn more information. The truck was open from 9:00am to 5:30pm during the two days, allowing everyone the chance to take a look inside.
We were very grateful to have this opportunity and hope that some of you will be able to take a tour of the inside of the truck for yourselfs one day!
