Aga Khan Foundation

The Aga Khan Foundation partners with communities around the world to build better futures together.

Committed to breaking the cycle of poverty, the Aga Khan Foundation makes long term investments, builds reliable

institutions and cultivates an active civil society to improve the quality of life for all regardless of gender, origin or religion.

We work alongside communities across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East to break the cycle of poverty.
For more than 50 years, the Aga Khan Foundation has been partnering with communities, governments, businesses and local organisations to build better futures together.

Vision for Change

We are stronger together. Our work is driven by a firm belief in our shared humanity. Prosperity for all comes from harnessing the best from people of all walks of life. Strong partnerships with local organisations, businesses, governments and community leaders based on a shared vision for the common good improves the quality of life for people in the poorest and most marginalised regions.

“The voices of civil society will reflect and express the growing complexity of society, not as autonomous fragments, but as diversified institutions seeking the common good. And I believe that the voices of civil society can be among the most powerful forces in our time.”
