“We live in a world that needs healing, care, empathy, smiles, happiness and simply unconditional support from amazing people who could be tending to their own needs and families, but they selflessly and courageously choose to serve the Aga Khan Museum and its visitors, whenever it may be.   My deep appreciation and affection for this regular act of kindness, and patience for their understanding in these changing times” – Moyez Jadavji, Chief Operating Officer

They partner with us as we build bridges between cultures.  They inspire me every day in everything I do – thank you!" – Nadya Hashmani,  Senior Human Resources Manager
