Aga Khan pledges enhanced support for Chitral

Chitral, Pakistan, 4 December 2003 - Addressing gatherings totalling over 120,000 in rugged yet spectacular mountain settings in this remote corner of Northern Pakistan, His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam (spiritual leader) of the Shia Ismaili Muslims, today pledged to assist the population to look for new opportunities to improve the quality of their lives. Noting that "much more needs to be done for your children and grandchildren," the Aga Khan spoke during short visits to Garam Chashma and Booni, of the need to improve the quality and quantity of agricultural production, to improve access to quality health and education and to diversify the economy.
