Prince Amyn headlines the Aga Khan Foundation Gala in New YorkAfter a brief fundraising auction, Prince Amyn spoke eloquently, beginning with a reference to the evening’s keynote spoke, Vartan Gregorian, the Iranian-born Armenian educator and non-profit administrator who has headed the Carnegie Corporation for two decades. “Vartan told me I would be auctioned, but apparently there were no bids,” the prince joked. Then he turned serious as described how his brother’s philanthropic career began at age 3 1/2, “seventy-seven years ago,” and his foundation began “as a collection of desperate undertakings that were subsequently molded into an important entity dedicated to quality of life in the Third World,” stressing educatioon which “plays the most fundamental role in development.”
