Improving the quality of life
The Aga Khan Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life, promote pluralism, and enhance self-reliance in poor and marginalised communities.
“The search for justice and security,
the struggle for equality of opportunity,
the quest for tolerance and harmony,
the pursuit of human dignity – these are moral
imperatives which we must work towards
and think about on a daily basis.”
His Highness The Aga Khan
Breaking the cycle of poverty
