Education
For almost 100 years, agencies of the Aga Khan Development Network have been engaged in providing education to the people of Kenya. The first Aga Khan High School opened in Mombasa in 1918. Today,  AKDN's education programmes range from early childhood education programmes through to university level.  In addition, AKDN works with the government to support primary schools in ten targeted districts of Kenya while encouraging children to stay in school and attain improved learning outcomes.
