  • Bujagali Energy Limited (BEL) was set up as a public-private partnership bringing together the Government of Uganda, Industrial Promotion Services (the infrastructure arm of the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development), Sithe Global (a company majority-owned by the Blackstone Group) and Jubilee Insurance.

The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) and its agencies actively seek to cooperate with like-minded institutions in the design, implementation and funding of innovative development projects. They therefore need and welcome institutions and individuals throughout the world as partners to attain shared objectives. Individual AKDN agencies also work closely with local, state and national governments in each country in which they are active. The following institutional partners contributed financially or materially to the programmes of individual AKDN agencies. Many more contributed practically and intellectually to their work. All of these contributions are gratefully acknowledged.
