Have you heard of Giving Tuesday? It’s a growing international movement to inspire personal philanthropy and service. With your support we raised over $170,000 for our 2014 Giving Tuesday campaign, with $30,000 raised on the day itself! We are inspired by your generosity and in awe of your compassion. Together, we are making an impact on thousands of communities, and local leaders like Burulai, Zainab, Fatima, Schafer, Asel, Maryum, and Simplice to help people break the cycle of poverty and become self-reliant. Thank YOU for making a world of difference to so many struggling to improve their lives!
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2015, on March 8th, the Aga Khan Foundation spotlighted “Women Who Make It Happen.” We celebrated women who are deeply committed to the work of the Aga Khan Development Network and ending poverty. For this year’s campaign, we shared the in-depth story of one Afghan woman who faced great obstacles to achieve her dreams.
