AKDN IN

Afghanistan

At the conference on the reconstruction of Afghanistan, held in Tokyo in 2002, His Highness the Aga Khan made an initial pledge of US$ 75 million to Afghanistan’s reconstruction. To date, AKDN’s assistance to Afghanistan has exceeded His Highness’ original pledge by 80 percent. With the support of its donors and partners, nearly US$ 750 million has been channelled through the AKDN for Afghanistan’s reconstruction. Among other things, this investment has helped to produce large-scale rural development, health, education and civil society programmes; the provision of a range of microfinance services; the safeguarding of historic landscapes and neighbourhoods in Kabul and Herat; a rapidly growing mobile phone network; and the renovation of a five-star hotel in Kabul.
