A private philanthropic institution founded by the Aga Khan in 1967 to provide “the Muslim ethic of care and compassion for those of society in greatest need” and to address economic and social needs through Islamic ideals and ethics. Funding is provided by the Aga Khan, the Nizari Ismaili community, international and local donor agencies, foundations, and individuals. Since its inception, the Aga Khan Foundation has become a recognized international development agency with programs in Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America. Headquartered in Geneva, the foundation has three major foci: health, education, and rural development.
