Volunteers ventured out into stormy conditions to provide assistance in flood affected areas

Hurricane Harvey has been referred to as a "1,000-year flood," with its 50 inches of rainfall exceeding all records for the continental USA. It is estimated that damage from the storm will surpass that of hurricanes Sandy (New Jersey 2012) and Katrina (Louisiana 2005) combined. Volunteers have worked to reach Jamati members and others affected by the flooding, and to provide assistance with the recovery process.

Toronto, 27-28 May 2017 - For a third year in a row, the Ismaili Centre, Toronto opened its doors to the wider community for the 18th annual Doors Open Toronto, an weekend event in which hundreds of buildings of architectural, historic, cultural, and social significance to the city of Toronto open their doors to the public for this free citywide event.  Ismaili Centre tour guides hosted over four thousand visitors over the course of the weekend, sharing their insights about the architecture and vision that the late Charles Correa, the modernist Indian architect, had for the design of the Centre. 

Startup Alley at IPN LaunchPad 2016 is where investors and mentors had a chance to network one-on-one with startup founders seeking funding and advice.

Ismaili entrepreneurs and investors from nine countries gathered in California’s Silicon Valley last month to pitch ideas, share knowledge and to network with one another as part of IPN LaunchPad. The event was a chance for budding companies to access new sources of capital and connect with mentors and experts.
