My grandfather helped to build schools here a century ago. Our Aga Khan Development Network and its predecessor institutions have been operating hospitals and clinics here for over 50 years. Community health programmes, early childhood education and programmes to strengthen civil society continue to be important areas of emphasis. The accomplishments we celebrate today, then, are a part of an ongoing story – and it is a story which has counterparts in many places around the world.
