Aga Khan Development Network Publications
The latest 2011-2014 edition of Aga Khan Foundation's (Geneva) brochure AKF and AKDN: A Continuum of Development highlights AKF activities and programs, emphasizing how they reinforce the work of other Aga Khan Development Network agencies or, in many cases, are implemented in partnership with those agencies.
The AKF/AKDN Fact Sheet, updated annually and available in January, gives a synopsis of Aga Khan Foundation and Aga Khan Development Network, describing its mission, scope, approach and key characteristics.
The Aga Khan Development Network has roots in the developing world that give it a unique capacity to draw on a naturally occurring asset: people working towards a common good. AKDN supports the ethical underpinnings of an inclusive civil society, where communities help others to build a better society, an impulse found in all cultures and major religious traditions. Because successful societies need structural support for channeling private energies toward public good, AKDN works to ensure that societies build an architecture for civil society.
The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) works to alleviate poverty, hunger, illiteracy and illness through community-based initiatives. AKDN works for universal access to education and improved learning by all students, especially girls and other traditionally marginalized groups. AKDN’s agencies have complementary mandates and a presence in 35 countries, where they work with host governments, international partners and local institutions. AKDN’s education programs work to ensure that young people have the knowledge, skills and values to succeed and contribute to society. These programs extend from pre-school through the university level, with teacher training and school improvement as elements across all levels.
