Linking Academy Students with Internationally Recognized Aga Khan Foundation Projects

27 April 2009

A new partnership has been established between the CAS component of the Diploma Programme and the AKF community development projects in the Mombasa area.

AKA,M and Aga Khan Foundation Community Service Partnership Programme (CSP)

A new partnership has been established between the AKA,M’s Creativity Action and Service (CAS) component of the Diploma Programme and the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) community development projects in the Mombasa area.

Diploma students will now have the opportunity to take their learning and sense of civic responsibility a step further, by offering their service to meaningful and long-term placements with Aga Khan Foundation projects.

Placements will offer students a first hand glimpse into the development challenges existing in local communities and the opportunity to work alongside qualified development professionals on programmes ranging from health care to rural support to education.

Applications for Summer Service Placements, beginning the end of June and finishing mid-August, will be available for pick up starting May 4th, 2009 at the CAS/University office on the second floor of the Library.
