OUR FOCUS AREAS

Poverty is a complex problem. We make progress when we integrate the efforts of all sectors. At the Aga Khan Foundation, we take a holistic approach to development, tackling poverty on multiple fronts with local communities in the lead.

In each area of our work, we invest in human potential to expand opportunity and improve quality of life, especially for women and girls. We work in partnership with communities, governments, and like-minded institutions, using an approach that is locally rooted and globally informed.
