Au cours de l’année, les élèves du secondaire du Bait-ul Ilm d'Antananarivo à Madagascar ont donné naissance à un projet intitulé Green STEP, en collaboration avec diverses organisations de la société civile, afin d’améliorer leur environnement physique et social.

Thirty Ismaili volunteers extended a hand of friendship and support – and many bottles of water – to some 8 000 runners at the 2011 Brighton Marathon. The event was an opportunity to get involved and give back to the wider community.
