Aga Khan Foundation Canada
Established in 1980, Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) has transformed the lives of millions in Africa and Asia. AKFC’s work demonstrates that change is possible when poverty is tackled on multiple fronts, over the long-term, and with communities in charge. AKFC believes that lasting progress depends on partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders overseas and in Canada – from local individuals and communities to local and international businesses, governments and non-governmental organizations. Many of its efforts are undertaken in cooperation with the Government of Canada, through Global Affairs Canada. Sign up to AKFC’s mailing list to stay updated on news, events, and opportunities.
