So as to help 8th and 9th grade students to make informed decisions about career choices, AKEB organised an event entitled Vocational Guidance.

Selecting a field of study or a career path is one of the most challenging decisions to make. On 25 October, the Aga Khan Education Board (AKEB) for Portugal welcomed various age groups to the Ismaili Centre, Lisbon for two Speed Mentoring events, entitled “New Perspectives, Different Horizons” and “Vocational Guidance.”

AKEB's STEM agenda enables young members of the Jamat to experience, discover, and be inspired to adapt to shifting trends in the world; today, and in years to come.

In our rapidly changing world, the use of technology is not only on the rise, but is essential to participation in the knowledge society. On 20 October 2019, over 150 members of the Jamat attended the Ismaili Centre, London, for the inaugural Science Fair – part of the Aga Khan Education Board (AKEB)’s effort in the UK to promote interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Shaheen Ishani, Head of Learning Support, Southbank International School, Hampstead and Shelina Ladha, Educational Psychologist and CYP-IAPT Accredited Therapist, Enfield Educational Psychology Service and CAMHS discuss special educational needs, mental health, and wellbeing

At the Science Museum in London, attendees participate in challenges and games that explore the role of technology in the future.

In an effort to better understand the mysteries of the cosmos, and taking-off into its second year, Space Camp — an initiative of the Aga Khan Education Board (UK) — took 32 young participants from across the UK on an unforgettable space mission. 

In honour of Ramadan, the Ismaili Council for Ontario Women’s Portfolio, the Canadian Council of Muslim Women – Toronto Chapter and the Muslim Awards for Excellence Women in Leadership welcome all to an inspiring evening of conversation and connection followed by food and friendship at the Ismaili Centre, Toronto.
