Support Us

As a private, autonomous university, AKU works with communities and philanthropists in Asia, East Africa, North America and United Kingdom to maintain world-class education and health programmes. Our donors become partners as they support our efforts to improve quality of life in developing parts of the world. 

Some of our most important programmes - student financial assistance, patient welfare, research and service delivery - have been made possible because of the generosity and support of donors.

Look at all that your gift can accomplish!
