"It is my pleasure to celebrate here today the special partnership between Germany and the Aga Khan Development Network, or AKDN. Over the past 25 years, we have implemented almost €600 million of programmes together in Asia and in Africa - spanning clean energy and infrastructure, water supply and sanitation, financial services and tourism, as well as education, health and civil society."
“I have always maintained that my institutions would make a permanent commitment to the country. Therefore, on behalf of the Ismaili Imamat and AKDN, I underline, once again, our enduring commitment to Afghanistan and to its peoples.”
Citation for His Highness the Aga Khan by Dr. Elizabeth Cannon, President of the University of Calgary
