Dhaka, Bangladesh, 20 May 2008 - On 20 May 2008, on a state visit to Bangladesh, His Highness the Aga Khan laid a foundation stone for Bangladesh's first Aga Khan Academy. The Academy in Dhaka will eventually be part of a network of 18 centres of educational excellence in a total of 14 countries across Africa, Central and South Asia and the Middle East. The schools will use the International Baccalaureate curriculum and admit students on the basis of their academic potential rather than their ability to pay.
