Mawlana Hazar Imam has approved a set of new guidelines for our uniformed volunteers who render service day in, day out, in Jamatkhanas and beyond. The new standards serve to contemporize the Ismaili Volunteers in a manner that respects the legacy, spirit, and tradition of the Jamat's voluntary service worldwide.

Among the key changes are:

  • A new name – changed from Ismaili Volunteer Corps (IVC) to Ismaili Volunteers (IV).

  • A new motto – ‘khidma’ - meaning 'service' in Arabic – which expresses the core value of the Ismaili Volunteers and transcends geographical boundaries, age, cultures, and ethnicities. It represents the notion of unconditional service and commitment to the Imam and Jamat.

  • A new uniform – with a contemporary design that resonates with other Jamati and AKDN logos, and highlights the identity of the Ismaili Volunteers globally. View the new uniform options.

  • A new structure – a restructuring of the leadership positions and titles. View the new roles and titles.

The new badge and visual identity is poised to become a powerful representation of shared values, which unite the diverse yet dynamic group of Ismaili Volunteers worldwide. The new badges, ties and scarves are available for purchase at the IV Store in all Jamatkhanas.
