Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. (AKF USA), established in 1981 in Washington DC, is a private, non-denominational, not-for-profit international organization committed to the struggle against poverty, hunger, illiteracy and poor health, primarily in Africa and Asia.   The Foundation works to address the root causes of poverty by supporting and sharing innovative solutions in the areas of health, education, rural development, civil society and the environment. 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). AKF USA’s role within the Network includes mobilizing resources and strategic partnerships with a variety of U.S.-based institutional partners including government agencies, policy institutes, corporations, foundations, NGOs, universities, associations and professional networks. AKF USA serves as a learning institution for program enhancement, policy dialogue and disseminating best practices and knowledge resources. It collaborates in providing technical, financial and capacity-building support to other AKDN agencies and programs worldwide.
