HOUSTON, TEXAS, April 7, 2016. On Wednesday, April 6, 120 golfers drove to the green while investing in long-term solutions to improve quality of life for communities around the world. Aga Khan Foundation’s annual Aga Khan Foundation Golf – Houston tournament netted $128,400 for programs of the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) that help communities around the world to build better futures. 100 percent of those net proceeds from the tournament and all donations go directly to projects supported by the Aga Khan Foundation.

The charity tournament attracted a total of 150 people including high-level corporate executives, civic leaders, and local celebrities. Golfers’ contributions help communities in some of the poorest areas of Africa and Asia improve their quality of life. Contributions make a tremendous impact in creating locally driven opportunities for girls in Pakistan to attend school, farmers in Mali to feed their families and improve their incomes, and mothers in East Africa to lead healthy lives. These efforts that build flourishing economies are the cornerstones of a thriving community.
