Activities and Events
The Aga Khan University hosted “Rays of Light”, a multi-dimensional exhibition dedicated to celebrating 60 years of His Highness the Aga Khan’s efforts in serving humanity, in Pakistan for the first time.
We take a look back at the memorable National Games of the Diamond Jubilee Sports Festival (DJSF) at the Jinnah Complex in Islamabad. Over 1300 athletes from eight regions competed for medals in 17 different sports, supported by enthusiastic crowds.
Shukurallah Baig from Hunza began work with Aga Khan Cultural Service, Pakistan (AKCSP) as a draught engineer. Over the years he has worked on iconic projects like Altit and Baltit Fort. Recently he oversaw the restoration of the Wazir Khan Chowk, a historical cultural space in the Walled City of Lahore. "It has been heartening to see attitudes change in old Lahore. Inhabitants have come to realise that it is not necessary to dismantle old buildings; it is possible to renovate them both internally and externally. People here in Lahore associate the Aga Khan Trust for Culture with high standards, pride and job opportunities."
