Arusha, 28 July 2011 — His Highness the Aga Khan, founder and chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network, this afternoon met with His Excellency Ambassador Dr Richard Sezibera, the Secretary General of the East African Community (EAC) at the EAC Headquarters in the Arusha International Conference Centre. The two discussed how the AKDN could continue to contribute to the regionalisation of East Africa and the forthcoming campus being developed by the Aga Khan University in Arusha. The Aga Khan Development Network has been active in East Africa for over 100 years and today operates a number of social and economic development programmes in the region. In 2007, the Aga Khan announced that the Aga Khan University would be building its main East African campus in Arusha. With programmes already operating in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, the new campus will strengthen the University’s position as a regional university. The Aga Khan had earlier visited the site of the Arusha campus accompanied by the trustees of the University.
