The room was buzzing with energy and activity, all the stalls were being set, every item was positioned in its designated place and final touches were being added.
This was witnessed on the 15th of February 2019, when "Hunar - The Skill Mela" was launched in Bangalore Jamatkhana for the first time. The event was organized by Women's Activities Portfolio in synergy with Economic Affairs Committee. The objective for organizing this event was to give the women of our Jamat a strong platform to showcase their skills, to bring them out of their comfort zone and to overcome feelings of insecurity and self-doubt. A variety of skills were witnessed at this mela, such as cooking, photography, painting & sketching, mehendi design, pottery and also marketing.
Other local boards, such as Aga Khan Education Board (AKEB), Aga Khan Youth and Sports Board (AKYSB), Aga Khan Health Board (AKHB) as well as ITREB, India too put up their stalls.
Hunar was a huge success where both participants and the Jamat enjoyed the showcase of an assemblage of skills!
