ISLAMABAD: The global Ismaili Muslim community will commemorate the inaugural Global Ismaili CIVIC Day on Sept 26, says a press release.
To mark this annual signature event, President Ismaili Council for Pakistan Hafiz Sherali called on President of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi at the Aiwan-e-Sadr to officially present a pledge to the government on behalf of the Ismaili community in Pakistan for planting one million trees by the end of 2022.
Ismaili CIVIC Pakistan will build on the tree plantation drive “Darakht se Hayat” (Life from trees) and the cleanliness drive “Saaf Khushal Pakistan” (Clean prosperous Pakistan) launched earlier this year.
While receiving the pledge, President Alvi appreciated the contribution and services of the Ismaili community and the Aga Khan Development Network for the development of Pakistan. He emphasised that such public-private partnerships with civil society organisations and communities have helped to improve the quality of life of people in Pakistan.
