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.

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.
