About the Aga Khan Foundation
Reliable hospitals, schools and community centers. Flourishing economies. Informed and engaged people who have the space and collective power to shape their own futures. These are the cornerstones of all thriving communities.
Poverty is a complex problem, yet we make progress when we integrate the efforts of organizations from all sectors and across borders.
Harnessing the best from people of all walks of life, we build deep partnerships with nonprofits, businesses, governments and local leaders based on a shared vision of prosperity for all. Working with our partners – ranging from governments, local citizen groups, NGOs, socially responsible corporations and foundations – we make long-term commitments to pioneering programs that improve the quality of life.
The Aga Khan Foundation has been investing in civil society across Africa and Asia for decades, partnering with communities to build better futures together. Committed to breaking the cycle of poverty, especially for society’s most vulnerable, we integrate our efforts across sectors making long-term investments, building lasting institutions and cultivating local leadership. We work for the common good of all citizens, regardless of gender, origin or religion, inspired by compassion and solidarity with the vulnerable in society.
The Foundation is a member of the Aga Khan Development Network, one of the world’s leading poverty solutions networks, established by His Highness the Aga Khan.
