The Board of FOCUS Europe, and the National Council of Portugal, invites you to participate, via webcast, in the event in which Onno Ruhl, General Manager of the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH), will speak about the Ismaili Imamat’s vision for AKAH and present the work of the agency, which is focused on improving the habitat and resilience of communities in South and Central Asia.
Launched in 2016, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat brings together several existing AKDN agencies engaged in improving habitats and resources. The Focus Humanitarian Assistance field units in Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and Tajikistan, involved in providing humanitarian relief, were also brought under the AKAH.
AKAH is deeply involved in projects related to water sanitation and safety, environmental stewardship, home reconstruction, disaster prevention, among many more, helping thousands of people to improve their quality of life.
FOCUS Europe continues to work closely with AKAH by providing financial resources to decrease the vulnerability and increase resilience of the Jamat living under the constant threat of natural disasters.
