Aga Khan Foundation Canada is a non-profit international agency that supports social development programs in Asia or Africa. As a member of the Aga Khan Development Network, AKFC works to address the root causes of poverty: finding and sharing effective and lasting solutions that help improve the quality of life for poor communities. Our programs focus on four core areas: health, education, rural development and building the capacity of non-governmental organizations. Gender equity and protecting the environment are integrated into every program.
Since 1989 AKFC has been helping to develop young Camadian leaders in the field of international development through its Development Fellowship Program. Fellowships feature an eight-month placement in Asia or Africa, preceded by a four week management seminar in Ottawa facilitated by leading development practitioners.
The month-long management seminar in Ottawa provides fellows with a thorough grounding in the skills required to contribute effectively to their host organizations by emphasizing an analytical approach and strategic thinking and planning. Workshops are taught by some of Canada's foremost international cooperation professionals. Three fields to choose from: The International Development Management Fellowship (IDM), The International Microfinance and Microenterprise Fellowship (IMM), The Young Professionals in Media Fellowship (YPM).
