Mandat : Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) is a private, non-denominational, Canadian development agency established in 1980. As a member of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), AKFC promotes equitable and sustainable development in Asia and Africa, without regard to faith, origin or gender. For over 25 years, AKFC has partnered with CIDA on a range of successful programs in some of the poorest parts of the world. Concentrating on livelihoods, education, health and civil society strengthening, AKFC and its partners seek to address the interconnected causes of poverty through a long-term, multi-input approach that empowers individuals and communities to seek local solutions to the challenges of poverty. All programs share cross-cutting concerns for gender equality, environmental sustainability, pluralism and human resource development. In Canada, through policy dialogue, research, public engagement and opportunities for Canadians to live and work overseas, AKFC seeks to distil and enhance Canada's longstanding tradition of engagement in the world. AKFC places great importance on engaging Canadian youth in its development education and human resource development activities, especially through its Fellowships in International Development Management (IDM) and International Microfinance and Microenterprise (IMM).

Organisation d'accueil : Coastal Rural Support Program (Mozambique)
Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil : CRSP (M)'s goal is to promote economic growth and socio-economic development in poor rural communities in the Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique. By the end of 2008, the programme expects to improve the livelihoods of 125,000, using a comprehensive, integrated approach to rural development. A larger population, living in nearby areas, will likely benefit as a result of networking and policy dialogue at the provincial and national levels.
