Some 80 participants aged 18 — 22 engaged in dialogue about differences and commonality, reflected on how to make positive life choices, and learnt how they might transform their hopes for a better world into reality. The 80 participants, who came from across the country, brought with them a range of cultural backgrounds; notably, some 13 per cent of them were Afghan youth living in Pakistan. Counting many from rural parts of the country as well as youth with special abilities, the camp was broadly inclusive, with young women representing 40 per cent of participants.

This year Global Encounters took forty-two young Ismailis from thirteen countries to Pakistan. From the shores of Karachi to the mountains of Gilgit-Baltistan, the participants immersed themselves in the culture of Pakistan and explored the institutional work being done on many levels. The experience helped them gain an improved understanding of pluralism, diversity and the breadth of the work being done by AKDN and Jamati institutions in Pakistan. Global Encounters is an international programme for young, future leaders of the Jamat. The main aim of the programme is to provide the participants an opportunity to understand and internalize the concepts of service to the community, sharpen their leadership skills, develop an insight regarding a variety of cultures, and help them see and experience the meaning of pluralism. This programme was introduced in and, to date, participants from across 31 countries have participated in it. In the process, cumulatively, the participants have contributed over 20, hours of service to local schools and communities through their community service projects. The measure of the success of this programme goes far beyond such tangible outcomes. It has also produced indelible impressions on the lives of the participants, enriching them with memorable experiences and lasting relationships that will be cherished for years to come.

I've been seeing a doctor for two years now. He has never said a disparaging word about his mother. I am a non Mormon. Disease and Condition Articles. And even when they are home with you Expectations of time together is a mirage. Life is not perfect. Everyone seems to be supporting the idea that he is just too busy, but the truth is we over the internet can't judge his intent. I would never change my decision to marry him. I'm not going to hit the town with single ladies and couples find it awkward just inviting you over.
