Town Hall

October 17, 2021

The Aga Khan Foundation USA Town Hall was part of this year’s 2021 Virtual Voyage campaign.

We explored how AKF is going the distance to help remote and hard-to-reach communities in Asia and Africa.

Thank you to all who joined us to hear from AKF USA’s leadership and staff, as well as some of our National Committee members who responded to your questions about the Aga Khan Foundation’s work –– learning how your generous contributions make an impact in breaking the cycle of poverty and improving the quality of life for millions across Asia and Africa.
