Using community-based approaches to meet basic human needs, the Foundation builds the capacity of community and non-governmental organizations to have a lasting impact on reducing poverty. Aga Khan Foundation has branches and affiliates in 20 countries with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland since 1967.   AKF USA is an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN).
