Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme in Afghanistan

The Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) in Afghanistan designs and implements cultural heritage and restoration projects to promote Afghan culture and makes historical sites, landscapes, and residential quarters safe and usable. To date AKTC has restored over 145 individual heritage sites, ensuring their continued use by future generations and helping to preserve Afghan cultural identity. These projects, undertaken in coordination with local communities, are a means to invest in access improvements, infrastructure upgrading, and vocation training, which contribute to improving quality of life and socio-economic opportunities for local residents.

This collection contains a retrospective exhibition, a film, and a publication on the conservation and cultural work of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture since it became active in Afghanistan in 2002.
