Young members of the Aga Khan Scouts and Guides in Uganda serve meals to orphaned children at the Kasanagati Orphan Fans Society in Kawanda.

In Islamic belief, caring for the poor and the needy is a long established tradition. Serving orphaned children is especially commended, as quoted in the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family). With this in mind, young members of the Ismaili Volunteers Corps and the Aga Khan Scouts and Guides in Uganda gathered in June to serve hearty meals to orphaned children at the Kasanagati Orphan Fans Society in Kawanda.

Purpose: To find ways to present Islam in its true light as a faith of spirituality, peace and social justice.
