Economic development that helps people and societies fulfil their potential

The AKDN undertakes a broad spectrum of activities to stimulate economic growth and development in the countries where it works. Whether it is supporting community-based savings groups or accelerating the growth of small enterprises, or engaging in small- and large-scale infrastructure projects or promoting tourism and tourism-based employment, or restoring historic world monuments and other cultural assets that spark local economies, or investing in national media to provide independent voices for civil society, the underlying principle is the same: To create opportunities for economic growth while developing local human resources over time and contributing to the overall improved quality of life.
