Visit Us - AKFC is headquartered at the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat on Sussex Drive in Ottawa. We open our doors for tours and events on a regular basis.
Get Involved - Do your part to end global poverty -- there are lots of ways you can support AKFC's work in Canada and overseas.
Our Work - For more than 30 years, AKFC has worked with Canada and Canadians to sustainably improve the quality of life of poor, marginalized communities in Asia and Africa.
A lecture hall, a research lab, a textbook: each of these is a powerful tool to combat poverty around the world.
Universities are hubs of knowledge and innovation, poised to unleash new opportunities and drive growth.
But despite this potential, the international development community has made limited investments in higher education in the Global South – particularly compared to support for primary education and basic health care.
