Aga Khan Foundation - India
 

About:
In India, programmes of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) span the states of Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Bihar and address a broad spectrum of development issues ranging from cultural revitalisation to education quality, health care to the development of rural areas. These initiatives include 82 schools and educational centres, a 137-bed multi-specialty acute care hospital in Mumbai, a rural support programme that has benefited 400,000 people in four Indian states and the restoration of a World Heritage site in the nation's capital.

The Foundation is largely an implementing organisation rather than a grant-funding agency. Grants are normally given to local organisations interested in testing new solutions, in learning from experience and in being agents of lasting change. These organisations must share the Foundation's and AKDN's goals in the fields of health, education, rural development and strengthening of civil society. If no established group exists, the Foundation occasionally creates new organisations to tackle particularly important problems.

Development Orientation:
In India Aga Khan Network Focuses on Sanitation & Health. Water supply and sanitation programmes have been central to most AKDN environmental health efforts. Programmes in sanitation and hygiene promotion are particularly important. In the Indian state of Gujarat, for example, a government programme to bring sanitation to all the state’s 18,000 villages features an annual “Nirmal Gram”, or Clean Village, award.
