"The community is absolutely shaping what we do and that leads to a more meaningful and sustainable development work," Michael Kocher, General Manager of the Aga Khan Foundation, said in an interview.
If you are doing something wrong then you are going to hear about it," says Kocher. A stable financial foundation allows AKDN to make long-term commitments to the communities where it works, Kocher said. The Aga Khan describes medium-term thinking as a 25-year time horizon, Kocher explained. Longer-term programming enables community-driven development to take place in practice, not simply in theory. "What I find appealing about the Aga Khan Foundation is we are working farther upstream and we are working towards root causes of poverty and social tension and try to do something about it before something happens - whether it is the provision of health services or education," Kocher said.
