Ismaili CIVIC is a global initiative under which the members of the Ismaili community across the world have united around its centuries-old tradition of serving humanity by rendering voluntary service to improve the quality of life of the communities in which they live, regardless of faith, gender and background.
Under this year’s theme of ‘Environmental Stewardship’ Mississauga Ismaili community came together on the weekend of Sep 24th & 25th to participate in an educational Kahoot competition to raise awareness on environmental consciousness and a seed planting activity to raise awareness on nature and gardening practices. An E-waste drive in collaboration with EPRA (Electronic Products Recycling Association) was also organized to create awareness about E-waste and its threats to our environment.
90+ volunteers attended the events and that accounted for 360 hours of service.
Mississauga City Mayor Bonnie Crombie & Mississauga Malton MPP Deepak Anand attended this event and presented certificate to the community for their ongoing contribution and service to the society.
