Economic development

In Pakistan, economic development projects under the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED) umbrella range from tourism promotion, including eight hotels, to financial project companies.  In more marginalised and isolated communities, the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme (an initiative of the Aga Khan Foundation) undertakes activities to diversify income sources, so that rural households can generate greater incomes and manage financial uncertainty more successfully.  The Programme also supports community-based savings groups that reduce financial barriers to accessing health services, and thousands of physical infrastructure projects that have a transformative effect on the quality of life in these remote reaches.
