The Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. is honored to be a partner charity for the 2015 Boston Marathon -- the second year in a row!
For more than 30 years, the Aga Khan Foundation U.S.A. has been committed to the struggle against poverty, hunger, illiteracy, and poor health. As part of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), the Foundation fosters the growth of a strong civil society and promotes awareness of values and integrated approaches that enable people to improve the quality of their lives. We address the root causes of poverty by investing in innovative solutions in health, education, rural development, civil society, and the environment. Our community-based approaches have proven to have a lasting impact. The work of the Foundation and AKDN is grounded in a set of universal ethics:
- Respect for human dignity
- Compassion and solidarity with the less fortunate
- The right to participate and determine local priorities
- Service to humanity through volunteerism
