Sheikh Maktoum expressed his appreciation for AKDN’s initiatives in various fields including culture, heritage, historic cities, education, community development and the environment. He said the values that drive AKDN’s work in supporting underprivileged communities closely match the UAE’s own humanitarian and development ethos. The UAE’s exceptional contributions to humanitarian causes across the world has seen the country becoming the world’s largest donor of development assistance. The value of foreign aid provided by the UAE from 2010 to 2021 totals $56.14 billion (around Dh billion).

Prince Rahim Aga Khan praised the UAE’s projects and initiatives to support underprivileged communities around the world, which have contributed significantly to enhancing their welfare. He also commended the UAE’s global humanitarian work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The meeting also discussed the collaboration between AKDN and Expo’s ‘Programme for People and Planet’. The AKDN’s wide-ranging partnership with Expo is founded on a shared commitment and recognition that the most pressing challenges facing humanity can best be addressed through cultural, social, environmental and economic initiatives. The AKDN has also contributed to Expo’s ‘Theme Weeks’ on Climate and Biodiversity, Tolerance and Inclusivity, and Knowledge and Learning.

The meeting was attended by Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum; Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence; and Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director-General of the Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau.

Prince Rahim visits Mozambique

Image

Following his visit to Dubai, last night, Prince Rahim arrived in Maputo for a three-day visit, during which he will meet senior state officials and leaders of the Jamat, and attend the inauguration ceremony of the Aga Khan Academy Maputo.

Prince Rahim’s visit began at the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Welfare for a meeting with Minister Nyeleti Brooke Mondlane. The Minister congratulated Prince Rahim on the inauguration of the Aga Khan Academy Maputo, as she fondly recalled her childhood, when she and her siblings attended Aga Khan schools in neighbouring Tanzania.

Prince Rahim also visited the Presidential Palace in Maputo, where he met with President Filipe Nyusi. Prince Rahim conveyed Mawlana Hazar Imam’s greetings and warm wishes to President Nyusi, and acknowledged the long-standing relationship between the Ismaili Imamat and Mozambique.

They discussed matters of mutual interest, including socio-economic development efforts in Mozambique, the presence and activities of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), and plans to strengthen the formal relationship between the Ismaili Imamat and the Republic of Mozambique in the future.

AKDN agencies have been present in Mozambique for over two decades, working to improve quality of life in the country and wider region, through the areas of education, health, tourism, agriculture, civil society, and infrastructure.

Milestone AKDN projects include the rehabilitation of the historic Polana Serena Hotel, one of Africa’s grandest hotels; a Coastal Rural Support Programme that supports entrepreneurship and skills development in the country’s poorest northern districts; and the Moztex garment factory, which employs and trains over 700 staff, more than 90 per cent of whom are women. AKDN’s projects in Mozambique have directly reached over half a million beneficiaries since 2001.

Prince Rahim then travelled to the Parliament building to meet with Esperança Laurinda Bias, President of the Assembly of the Republic. The President thanked Prince Rahim for his visit to Mozambique and praised the work of AKDN in the country, especially in the Cabo Delgado province.

This evening, Prince Rahim will visit the Presidential Palace Ponta Vermelha, official residence of the President, where he will be the Guest of Honour at a state banquet hosted by President Filipe Nyusi in honour of Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, the President of Portugal, who is also visiting Mozambique.

Prince Rahim tours historic Maputo Jamatkhana

Image

Situated in the heart of Mozambique’s capital, along the Indian Ocean coast, Maputo Jamatkhana stands as a monument to the long history of the Ismaili community in southern Africa.

Since the 1940s, it has served as a central hub for the Jamat in Maputo, and has received many dignitaries over the past eight decades. Its latest guest was Prince Rahim, who toured the building and grounds earlier today.

The Jamatkhana, located a stone’s throw away from the old city’s baixa commercial district, is easily identified by the words Edificio Sua Alteza Aga Khan, or Building of His Highness the Aga Khan, that adorn its central clock tower.

Upon arrival, Prince Rahim was welcomed by Amin Rawjee, President of the Ismaili Council for Mozambique, as the Imamat flag stood raised atop the Jamatkhana. Prince Rahim met with leaders of the Ismaili community and toured the historic Jamatkhana’s spaces, gardens, and religious education classrooms.

The building first opened in 1941 to offer a space for the Jamat who had migrated from South Asia and settled in the port city of Maputo. By the 1960s, the community’s population had grown, and a larger space was needed. Work began on extending the main building in 1963.

The Jamatkhana extension was completed in 1968 and inaugurated by the then Governor General, Dr Baltazar Rebelo de Sousa, father of the current President of Portugal, Professor Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

Later in the day, Prince Rahim visited the Aga Khan Academy Maputo ahead of its official inauguration tomorrow. He spent time with teachers and staff of the school and toured the Academy campus and facilities, including the state-of-the-art science building, sports hall, and newly completed commons building.

Yesterday evening, Prince Rahim was a Guest of Honour at a state banquet hosted by President Filipe Nyusi in honour of President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, held at the Presidential Palace Ponta Vermelha, official residence of the President.

In their remarks at the banquet, both President Nyusi and President de Sousa paid tribute to Mawlana Hazar Imam and the efforts of the Aga Khan Development Network to improve quality of life in Mozambique and around the world.

The Aga Khan Academy in Maputo is part of a network of Academies established by Mawlana Hazar Imam. It is accredited as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, and features state-of-the-art facilities, a multicultural student body, and an experienced team of educators and staff.

Hosted at the school’s newly opened Commons building, the inauguration was attended by students and staff of the school; government and state officials; representatives of faith communities, businesses, and civil society; and leaders of the Jamat and AKDN.

In his remarks, Prince Rahim spoke of the vision of the Academy and the Aga Khan Curricular Strands which make the school unique.

“As a centre of excellence,” he said, “this Academy will equip its students with the tools needed to be competitive and to thrive, as they go on to their universities and then enter the arena of adult life. And it will teach them to push themselves to be the best they can possibly be.”

The Aga Khan Academies aim to develop future leaders with the skills and knowledge to support positive development in their societies. To achieve this, they recruit exceptional young people from all backgrounds regardless of socio-economic means, and provide them with the highest international standard of education.

“The wide geographic spread of the Academies is by design,” said Prince Rahim, “to allow students and staff to seamlessly travel to Academies in other countries, see different cultures, and build an appreciation and a love for them.”

Maputo’s Academy comprises 336 students, who represent 23 nationalities from across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. All students are encouraged to become intellectually curious, globally-minded citizens of the world with strong ethical values to complement their academic ability.

“Ethics are taught here not just in theory, but put into practice in elements of service and of leadership in the student's daily lives,” Prince Rahim explained. “The Aga Khan Academies intend for their graduates not to be good at subjects only, but good as individuals.”

President Filipe Nyusi commended the presence of an Aga Khan Academy in Maputo, along with other ongoing AKDN initiatives in the country.

“We have been following the positive impact of various socio-economic projects undertaken by the Aga Khan Development Network, which greatly contribute to the progress of Mozambique, in line with our country's own development programme,” he said.

In his remarks, President Rebelo de Sousa commented on the long-term vision and work of Mawlana Hazar Imam to establish the Aga Khan Academies. He also commented on the historical strength of the Jamat in Mozambique.

“In Mozambique the Ismaili community is very strong, very dynamic, and very brave,” the President said. “This Academy is a recognition of the valuable presence of the community here.”

He also addressed the students in the audience. “Being part of this Academy is a unique opportunity and privilege in your lives,” he said.

Prince Rahim joined President Nyusi and President Rebelo de Sousa as they unveiled the inaugural plaque before taking a tour of the Academy campus.

The school’s buildings and grounds are purpose-built to provide world-class facilities for students and staff­. These include classrooms with state-of-the-art technology, well-equipped libraries, extensive sports facilities, and spaces for arts, music, and performance.

The Academy in Maputo joins a network of existing and planned schools of excellence around the world. The first opened in Mombasa, Kenya in 2003, and the second in Hyderabad, India in 2011. The Academy in Dhaka, Bangladesh will open later this year.

Prince Rahim Aga Khan reaffirms AKDN’s commitment to the people of Afghanistan

Afghanistan Conference 2022, 31 March 2022 – Prince Rahim Aga Khan today affirmed the “unfailing commitment of the Ismaili Imamat and the AKDN to the people of Afghanistan,” at a virtual conference convened by UN Secretary General António Guterres to address the country’s humanitarian crisis.

Speaking on behalf of His Highness the Aga Khan, Prince Rahim urged the international community to act swiftly to support the UN’s humanitarian appeal.

“Since August, despite huge challenges, in cooperation with UN agencies, the Aga Khan Development Network has maintained its life-saving work across Afghanistan: keeping its hospitals and clinics open; assisting communities with food, shelter and livelihoods; and continuing to help thousands of children of both genders to access learning,” he said.

“Our experience over the past three decades, along with generous support from many international partners, has taught us to believe deeply in the capacity of Afghans, in their pluralism, and in the strength of their vibrant, diverse communities. They have shown time and again that they are resilient and resourceful, but today, they need help.”

He urged the international community to also address urgently the causes of the current crisis – economic collapse, banking and monetary paralysis, and the strangulation of legitimate Afghan businesses and jobs. Afghanistan’s future will be determined at the community level, Prince Rahim observed: “It is there that Afghans of all backgrounds will come together to address their most urgent needs. ”

The High-level Pledging Event on Supporting the Humanitarian Response in Afghanistan was held, virtually, at the ministerial level. It focused on securing scaled-up resources to address the unprecedented level of humanitarian needs in Afghanistan, where more than 24.4 million people require assistance, and raising awareness of other challenges critical to the survival of Afghanistan’s people.

Statement by Prince Rahim Aga Khan at the virtual Afghanistan Conference 2022

VIDEO SPEECH: http://ismaili.net/timeline/2022/2022-0 ... nistan.mp4

Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of His Highness the Aga Khan, I thank the Governments of Germany, Qatar, the United Kingdom, as well as the United Nations, for convening this meeting at a time when so many Afghans are in peril.

Since August, despite huge challenges, in cooperation with UN agencies, the Aga Khan Development Network has maintained its life-saving work across Afghanistan: keeping its hospitals and clinics open; assisting communities with food, shelter and livelihoods; and continuing to help thousands of children of both genders to access learning.

That is a sign of the unfailing commitment of the Ismaili Imamat and the AKDN to the people of Afghanistan. Our experience over the past three decades, along with generous support from many international partners, has taught us to believe deeply in the capacity of Afghans, in their pluralism, and in the strength of their vibrant, diverse communities. They have shown time and again that they are resilient and resourceful, but today, they need help.

That is why we urge the international community to support the UN’s humanitarian appeal with generosity and speed. But it must also address the causes of this crisis – the economic collapse, banking and monetary paralysis, and the strangulation of legitimate Afghan businesses and jobs. These deserve equally urgent and practical attention.

Today, we must send a signal of hope to Afghans across the country, and especially at the community level where Afghanistan’s future will be determined. It is there that Afghans of all backgrounds will come together to address their most urgent needs. Let us act swiftly in solidarity, with foresight and with compassion.

Thank you.

Yesterday, 12 May, Monsignor Peña Parra, the Substitute for the Secretariat of State at the Vatican, was welcomed to the Ismaili Centre Lisbon by Prince Rahim, accompanied by Nazim Ahmad, Diplomatic Representative of the Ismaili Imamat to Portugal, and Rahim Firozali, President of the Ismaili Council for Portugal.
