  1. For over five decades AKDN and the Ismaili Imamat and the Ismaili communities are working on the projects that have their primary objective of improving the fate and the face of the humanities world wide, believing that if the fate of a single person is changed for better the entire humanity is changed for better,and the underlying principle is to teach somebody to catch a fish rather than to serve him with the dinner of fish,and obviously Tanzania is one such country and we will all along with the Imam will stand by Tanzania.
