Education in India

The first Aga Khan School was founded in Mundra (Gujarat) in 1905. Since then, the number of schools and other education institutions run by AKDN agencies has risen to over 80. The Aga Khan Academies (AKA), Aga Khan Education Services (AKES) and the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) are the principal AKDN agencies working in education in India. AKDN has taken a holistic approach to education in India focused on providing the best quality learning opportunities to all sections of society while also supporting government institutions to improve the quality of education being provided in public/state schools.
