|Once a month, JollyGul.com releases “Must Watch, Must Listen” recommendations of devotional music produced by our community members as well as what is created in the wider Muslim world. For January 2020, JollyGul.com is paying tribute to Ismaili Volunteer Corps.
Recently the Jamat celebrated 100 Years of Ismaili Volunteer Corps (IVC). This month we dedicate our “Must Watch, Must Listen” edition to our volunteers. We will present to the Jamat 9 videos (made by Institutions and Individuals) that honor that deeply ingrained voluntary spirit in our community.
Over these decades the IVC has been transforming from a “Work No Words” institution to an increasing ‘Work and Many Words” way of looking at service. The Jamat has become more successful and self-confident across the world under the leadership of our Imam-e-Zaman and therefore able to better articulate and communicate our enduring core values of service, compassion and sharing. These videos bear witness to this wonderful transformation.
Voluntary service (in the broadest sense of the word) is in our DNA and also the “secret sauce” to the success of our institutions. Let us make that “sauce” even stronger in the next 100 years!
