Posta launches new Aga Khan stamps

Grace Natabaalo, Kampala – Daily Monitor

Eight new stamps featuring various development projects of the Aga Khan in Uganda have been issued by Posta Uganda. The stamps, which commemorate the Golden Jubilee of the Aga Khan, were launched on Wednesday during celebrations to mark the World Post Day at the Posta office in Kampala.

The Aga khan Development Network (AKDN) is a network of institutions founded and led by Prince Karim Aga Khan, which collaborate with the governments and other organisation, towards improving living conditions and opportunities for people in some of the poorest parts of the developing world like Uganda.

According to the Chairperson of the board of directors of Posta Uganda, Ms Proscovia Njuki, the stamps are a way of disseminating information.

“Organisations have realised the important role Posta can play in the dissemination of information through postage stamps and that is why the AKDN has chosen to partner with us,” she said.
Speaking at the launch of the stamps, the AKDN resident representative, Mr Mahmood Ahmed, said the stamps capture some of the initiatives of His Highness in Uganda over the 50-year period from 1957 to 2007.
