We believe we all have purpose.

Driven by our belief in our shared humanity, we are dedicated to helping all people fulfill that promise for themselves.

The Aga Khan Foundation is different. We provide more than just goods and services.

For over 50 years, we have worked in some of the most remote, hard-to-reach parts of Asia and Africa. We partner with communities to improve quality of life for decades and generations.

Prosperity for all comes from harnessing the best from people of all walks of life. We believe that communities and societies are stronger when they are built on the vision and collaboration of people from all backgrounds.

The voices of civil society will reflect and express the growing complexity of society, not as autonomous fragments, but as diversified institutions seeking the common good. And I believe that the voices of civil society can be among the most powerful forces in our time.
