AKDN IN

Kenya
Over the last century, the Aga Khan Development Network’s (AKDN) many programmes and diverse institutions have become strong forces of social and economic development in Kenya, improving the quality of life in some of the country’s most resource poor communities. An Agreement of Cooperation for Development was signed with the Government of Kenya in 1996. It recognises AKDN’s contributions to national development and creates an enabling framework for its activities.
