Tanzania: Aga Khan Development Network to Invest U.S. $1 Billion (Sh1.6 Trillion)in Expansion Plans for Tanzania 2014-08-19Posted August 20th, 2014 by librarian-hd
THE recent visit by His Highness the Aga Khan has opened up Tanzania to greater investments in the economic and social development of the country.
The current Aga Khan, who has been a friend of Tanzania since before independence is a keen follower and partner in the socio-economic development of mostly underdeveloped or developing nations, especially in Africa and Asia. Shah Karim's love for Tanzania has amply been proved by his frequent visits to the country having also attended the Independence celebrations of Tanganyika in 1961.

Expansion of Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam
The Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam has embarked on a major expansion programme to offer high-quality medical care and increase its capacity as a teaching institute within the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). The scheme, with a preliminary budget of over $50 million, is the largest private health care project to be undertaken in Tanzania to date.
H.H. The Aga Khan arived in Dar es Salam, Tanzania for AKDN work and official givernment meetings. He will be visiting Arusha also where the AKU will have its East African main campus.
The restoration of Forodhani Park in Zanzibar's historic stone town has been completed, thanks to a $2.4 million (over Sh3 billion) funding by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC)).
The popular outing place, one of the attractive features in the Isles will be inaugurated later this month.
The restoration project has transformed the historic park - one of the last open spaces in the densely populated world heritage site - and upgraded its social and recreational amenities.
