AKDN IN

Bangladesh

The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has had a presence in Bangladesh since as early as 1955, when Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah directed investments towards what became a thriving jute mill industry.  Today, the Network continues to work in the areas of early childhood development, pre-tertiary education, and financial services. In 2013, the People’s Republic of Bangladesh and the AKDN agreed to intensify cooperation on improving the quality of life of the people of Bangladesh.  Building on an earlier protocol signed in 1993, the new agreement established an enhanced framework for collaboration between the Government and the AKDN in the areas of social, cultural and economic development.
