Senator David Perdue joins community members and leaders for a picture during a luncheon at the Ismaili Jamatkhana.

Ismaili Jamatkhanas foster an appreciation of pluralism and serve as a perfect venue for sharing the Ismaili Muslim identity and community values with the greater community. Events hosted at the Jamatkhana stimulate the intellect, encourage dialogue, and celebrate cultural diversity in the Greater Atlanta Area. They are often also used to host government and community leaders to enhance relations and find pathways for civic engagement.

Ismaili youth from around the world have been making strides to bring about positive environmental change.

Younger generations invariably inherit the earth from those who came before. It is often these youngsters who are leading action to create positive change in their surroundings. Here are some examples of inspiring stories of young members of the Jamat working to introduce sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in their communities.

i-CERV and the Ismail Volunteer Corps partnered with The Salvation Army to prepare gift bags for the homeless and vulnerable people in Nottingham.

Over the years, Mawlana Hazar Imam has often spoken of the importance of civil society and of contributing towards the wellbeing of our communities. The iCERV programme in the UK has demonstrated that this ethic is very much alive within our Jamat.

The Festival of Friendship (FOF) brings together young people from numerous Asian communities in the country through sports and recreation.

The Jamat in Kenya, alongside other faith communities, recently participated in the Festival of Friendship 2018, in a show of unity, cultural diversity, and friendly competition.
