“Whilst political trends come and go and there are difficult times, the people of Afghanistan are still here. The resilience and strength of Afghan communities gives me hope.”
– Dr Najmuddin Najm, CEO of AKF Afghanistan
June 2022 – Despite the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, hope endures through the lives and experiences of the country’s communities. At the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF), we are proud to work alongside these communities and facilitate their locally led efforts to rise up out of hardship, nurture new opportunities to thrive and work towards a brighter future. For decades, we have been supporting Afghans in myriad ways, including health and nutrition, education and early childhood development, work and livelihoods, climate resilience and disaster preparedness, and agriculture and food security – this work has continued throughout the present humanitarian crisis.
