Aga Khan Foundation UK has established lasting and productive partnerships with a variety of European and Asian governments and their agencies, multi-lateral development institutions, corporations, trusts and foundations.
These have included countries like Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom; multilateral organisations such as Asian Development Bank, the European Commission, the International Fund for Agricultural Development, and the World Food Programme; and others trusts, foundations, and corporations such as Comic Relief, Johnson & Johnson.
The Aga Khan Foundation UK is also a learning institution for programme enhancement, policy dialogue, education, and disseminating best practices in international development. Drawing on both AKDN and external thought-leaders, the Foundation hosts events and talks contributing to the global dialogue on development issues.
Every two years, the Aga Khan Foundation UK organises a walk and run to raise awareness and funds for AKDN development initiatives. Since the first Walk and Run in 1983, tens of thousands of people have participated, raising millions of pounds for a variety of activities, ranging from health and education to post-disaster housing reconstruction and cultural regeneration.
