Website Address:

The Aga Khan Foundation (AKF), an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network, is a private, not-for-profit, non-denominational, international development agency established in 1967 by His Highness the Aga Khan. AKF brings together human, financial and technical resources to address some of the challenges faced by the poorest and most marginalised communities in the world. With an emphasis on women and girls, AKF invests in human potential, expanding opportunities and improving quality of life.

AKF leads a range of integrated, innovative and gender responsive interventions in Agriculture and Food Security; Civil Society; Climate Resilience; Early Childhood Development; Education; Health and Nutrition; and Work and Enterprise. Going forward, AKF is placing increasing importance on its Climate Resilience portfolio and climate as a cross-cutting theme for all AKF’s programme interventions. AKF’s current but rapidly evolving focus in the area of Climate Resilience includes nature-based solutions (tree planting, micro-forests, mangroves, regenerative agriculture, lowering livestock greenhouse gas emissions), clean energy (micro-hydels, solar energy), the green economy, rural livelihoods adaptation and viability, and climate education in schools).

AKF’s interventions are informed by evidence, data, local knowledge and extensive networks of community-led institutions. Its activities are coordinated not only with those of other AKDN agencies but also with local, national and international partners in order to bring to bear a full package of multiple activities that can spark a long-term process of positive change. In addition, AKF often plays a convening, partnership development, policy dialogue and resource mobilisation role for the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) and its agencies.

AKF delivers programming through its country offices and local affiliates in 13 countries: Afghanistan, Egypt, India, Kenya, Kyrgyz Republic, Madagascar, Mozambique, Pakistan, Portugal, Syria, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Uganda. AKF’s Head Office is in Switzerland and there are Resource Mobilisation Offices in Canada, United Kingdom and the United States.
