Poverty is a complex problem. The AKDN has been working with communities to break the cycle of poverty by using integrated approaches to development. Rooted in the developing world, our Network brings together a diverse range of expertise committed to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. By combining the efforts of AKDN’s multiple agencies – from commercial enterprises to social services to cultural and environmental agencies – we equip communities with the tools and knowledge they need to drive change that makes a lasting impact.

Numbers are one way we can illustrate the impact of our efforts in creating meaningful change:

  • 5 million people annually rely on healthcare provided by the Aga Khan Development Network
  • 43 million people have visited the 19 parks and green spaces developed by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture
  • 3.5 billion dollars are generated by the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development affiliate companies, where the surplus is reinvested in development activities
  • 2 million students annually are educated through schools and programs created by the Aga Khan Development Network.
