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.
A Part of the Aga Khan Development Network
As a member of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), the Foundation partners with communities to build better futures together. Each year, the Network helps improve the quality of life for tens of millions of people in over 30 countries. Learn more about AKDN here.

Last year, over 4,500 people joined us for our first-ever Virtual Voyage: Around the World with AKF.
As we flew through Kenya, India, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan, we were honored to share how your partnership is helping the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) provide urgent assistance to address both the immediate and long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, we’re excited to keep the journey going with a road trip through the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Pakistan, and Kenya to explore how AKF is going the distance to help remote and hard-to-reach communities.
