AKES in East Africa

In Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, AKES operates as a not-for-profit agency dedicated to serving the students, parents and teachers of the region. Currently, it operates 17 quality schools in East Africa, catering to close to 9,000 students and employing over 500 teachers.  The schools offer both national and international curriculums.

The earliest Aga Khan Education Services school was built in Zanzibar in 1905.  During the colonial era, AKES schools were the first to admit students of all faiths, ethnicities and origins. Today, their commitment to pluralism is still at the heart of the services they offer.


AKES schools are the bedrock of AKDN's work in education in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
