Prince Aga Khan reviews Academy work | Deccan HeraldHYDERABAD, April 11, 2015, DHNS: The spiritual leader of the Ismaili sect Prince Karim Al Hussaini Aga Khan, founder and Chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network, visited the Aga Khan Academy here on Friday to review progress of the school.

The Aga Khan was accompanied by his son Prince AlyMuhammed, his daughter Princess Zahra and her children Sara and Iliyan.  The visit to the academy allowed the Aga Khan to assess first-hand the progress made since his last visit in September 2013 when the school was formally inaugurated.

While at the academy, the Aga Khan toured the campus including the Athletics Centre, the Junior and Senior Schools, as well as the student residences. Together with members of his family, he met and interacted with teachers, staff and students.

Kais Khetani, a grade 10 student, showcased the prototype for a solar-powered car. He was among several students who demonstrated their work to the Aga Khan and his family. Khetani’s fascination with solar technology began when he was in grade 5.  The organisers turned him away believing he was too young. “They felt I wouldn’t be able to understand solar power,” he said.
