We helped governments create resources and toolkits to help students continue learning beyond the classroom.
The challenge: The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every place we work, in different ways. In these unprecedented times, agencies of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) have pulled together to find creative and effective solutions to sustain the important work that needs to be done to improve the quality of human life.
Our solution: Our response to the global threat of COVID-19 includes efforts across multiple areas and is expanding as things change. We provide emergency food aid, basic medicines, and shelter to vulnerable groups. We also support public health measures to “flatten the curve” and help provide high-quality medical care to those infected. Our response brings together efforts from all AKDN agencies in a coordinated way, providing care and expertise in a time of uncertainty.
