Muyassar's nine-month fellowship with Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. (AKF USA) has taught him a lot about international development, both its institutions and its individuals. Since his previous blog, in which he shared the impressive impact of savings groups in Tajikistan, he has learned a lot through his experience in the Washington, DC office and the perspective of a donor-liaison office. Read on to for his reflections on his time here in DC as his fellowship comes to a close and he prepares to return home.
A few of over 200 current projects from the Aga Khan Foundation.
The Foundation and its sister Aga Khan Development Network agencies have been experimenting with, and implementing, innovative solutions to development challenges for over 40 years. Our overriding goal is to assist in the struggle against hunger, disease, illiteracy, ignorance and social exclusion. Central to these efforts are community-based development approaches in which local organizations identify, prioritize and implement projects with the Foundation’s assistance.
The Foundation extends a helping hand to communities and individuals so they may live with dignity and hope. Take a glimpse at our projects to see the impact your contribution makes on saving lives, educating children and helping families to lift themselves out of poverty.
