Disruption is a buzzword in business vernacular. It characterizes an industry’s battle against new waves of technology that displace incumbents or creates a new market where none existed before.
On 14 June 2016, the light of the Jubilee Games shone from the top of Africa’s highest peak. A team of ten Tanzanians carried the Fanous up Mount Kilimanjaro, reaching the snowy Uhuru Peak at 5 895 metres above sea level.
The launch of Tanzania’s Fanous Roadshow in May was accompanied by a unique ceremony in which the fawanees of both Kenya and Tanzania came together in a symbolic demonstration of Ismaili brotherhood.
When the Ismaili Muslim community in the United States was invited to assist with the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles, the Jamat embraced the opportunity. Volunteers took on numerous roles, including hosting the delegation of athletes and coaches from Bangladesh.
