Students at Aga Khan Academy in Mombasa have achieved record-breaking results in this year’s International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) amid the challenging Covid-19 learning period.

Top scorers have received admission call-ups to a number of prestigious universities including Yale and Cambridge. The students have further been offered over $7 million (Sh800 million) in university scholarships. The students attributed their success to hard work.

If the industrialised world does not do this in the relatively near future, but builds barriers to protect itself against any recurrence of economic crisis, then the world recession will do even more damage than it has already to Third World economies. The pragmatists will be overtaken by failure of performance and their countries will return, through sheer frustration, to the strident conflicts of the past

Speech by His Highness The Aga Khan IV
C.C.I. , Bombay
23rd November, 1967

Mr. Sheriff, Honourable Chief Justice, Committee of Hosts, Ladies and Gentlemen
In the last ten years, it has been My good fortune to visit Bombay five times, and you, Mr. Sheriff, did Me the great honour of offering a similar reception to Me during My last visit in 1962. I thank you and the committee of hosts for your kindness. Your good wishes for the numerous garlands and for the most magnificent casket which I have been offered.

quote 844

Indeed ,it was in this city that My late grandfather spent many years of His childhood and it was here that He set His first step in the career which led Him eventually to the Presidency of the League of Nations. While in Bombay , I stay in the house in which My great grandmother lived for a substantial part of her life, and many of her possessions still occupy the same places that they held four generations ago

quote 843

. I find it amazing that only three centuries ago, in the mid-sixteen hundreds, Charles the II leased this city to the East India Company for an annual rental of £10 to be paid in gold.Today, Bombay increases its number of citizens annually, without counting people coming here from outside the Municipal boundaries, by a 100 thousand a year

Civic Reception at Kamla Nehru Park, Bombay
25th November, 1967
Your Lordship, Municipal Councillors, Citizens of Bombay

You have been very gracious in offering this reception in My honour and I am most sincerely grateful for your kind hospitality and for the warm words which you have said to Me in your address. Perhaps the fact that I have visited this great metropolis five times in the last ten years does not convey possibly enough the very special significance which Bombay has always had for Me.

quote 841

I am immensely proud of the donations which they are making – charitable donations to a worthy cause which are in the true spirit of generosity, in the true tradition of our Jamat and I am proud to say that this is one of the fundamentals of the development of our Jamati institutions all over the world and I would like to pay tribute to these donors today, because without them we would not be able to make the progress that we are makin

Mr. President of the Managing Council, Members, Ladies and Gentlemen

This, as you said Mr. President, is the 5th time that I have visited the Hospital in the last ten years. When I told the Federal Council of the Ismaili Community in India, that I would be visiting in this year, they said to Me, “certainly you never come to India”, and yet this is the fifth time in ten years and I do not believe I have visited any other area more often than India in the last ten years. I just want to get the record straight.
