In an effort to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls through access to and participation in science, the United Nations recognises 11 February as International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Young girls from the Dubai Jamat have displayed that women and girls can thrive in the field of science by winning an award for their innovative solution at the FIRST Lego League (FLL) competition.

The Rays of Light exhibition is set to open in Pakistan shortly, with the Jamat eager to view the acclaimed audio-visual depiction of the work of the Imamat over the last 60 years. This interactive exhibition features over 250 rare photographs along with engaging videos and multimedia clips, all of which provide extensive insights about the Ismaili community’s history and the work of the Aga Khan Development Network, which has always been particularly active in Pakistan. The exhibition highlights the tireless commitment of Mawlana Hazar Imam to encourage development through institutional action that embodies the social conscience of Islam.
