As we look to the New Year, I reflect on all those who make our work possible. It is through our collective effort and commitment that we are able to make headway in breaking the cycle of poverty for millions.
As the Aga Khan Foundation’s Building Better Futures campaign came to a close at year’s end, I am overcome with joy and pride for all the support shown by our dedicated donors in raising $192,670.10. Such support is an investment in helping people build better futures for themselves, their families and communities. It’s an investment in long-term solutions that bring opportunity and hope.
I sincerely appreciate the participation of those who shared the compelling stories from the people we serve. Their hope and resilience underscores the positive force that Building Better Futures has on all of us, whether we live in the U.S., Afghanistan, Kenya, Mali or Pakistan.
I am fortunate to lead an organization whose supporters have an unyielding compassion, dedication, and commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty. Together our hard work and generosity can continue to improve the quality of life for people in the poorest regions of Africa and Asia.
The road to ending poverty is multifaceted, but know that we will get there together.
Wishing you a happy and peaceful New Year,
Aga Khan Foundation USA
