The Ismaili Council for Afghanistan’s Women’s Committee hosted a multi-city event on 14 March 2019 in celebration of International Women's Day.

The Ismaili Council for Afghanistan’s Women’s Committee hosted a multi-city event on 14 March 2019 to coincide with International Women’s Day. The programme brought together over 3,000 women and men to celebrate the role of women in society.

Fatimid women owned land, property, jewelry, and textiles, one of the most prized commodities of the period. Made in Egypt in the 11th century, this lustre-painted dish depicts a richly-attired female figure holding a cup. The vegetal scroll-like patterns of her sleeves are mirrored in the dish’s overall decoration.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, 8 March 2019, we celebrate the achievements of notable Muslim women - historical and contemporary - who have inspired and continue to inspire people of all faiths, backgrounds, and fields of endeavour.

Vernissage de l'exposition

Quand on parle de Jamatkhanas, plusieurs émotions et souvenirs nous viennent à l’esprit.

Partage, sérénité, convivialité ! sont les mots que l’on entend souvent. 

Fondée en 1967, Aga Khan Foundation fête ses 50 ans cette année. Cette année de double anniversaire, avec le Diamond Jubilee, est l’occasio pour chacun de nous, de nous rappeler nos valeurs d’aide et de partage, comme le montrent si bien les nombreuses actions humanitaires et les aides en faveur des populations défavorisées, mises en œuvre par la Fondation Aga Khan.
