From the isolated high mountain valleys of Tajikistan to the drought-affected areas of India, from the densely populated flood plains of Bangladesh to the fragile coastal zone of Mozambique, AKFC programs operate in some of the poorest and most remote areas of the world.
As part of the broader work of the (AKDN), AKFC focuses on countries in Africa and Asia where it has experience and expertise, and where highly skilled local staff can help monitor progress to ensure that results are achieved and resources are used effectively.
AKFC takes a regional focus to program design, in keeping with the principles of the AKDN. Countries do not exist in isolation from the complexities of their region, and many communities straddle porous borders. For this reason, sustainable improvements to quality of life are tied to the development of the region as a whole.
