From television to the Internet, there are many ways to raise awareness about important world issues. But there is hardly any better way than to directly involve people in worthwhile efforts to improve lives abroad. On April 5, the Aga Khan Foundation USA is attempting to do just that.

There's the stereotype of the Muslim woman -- silent and withdrawn behind her veil, obsequious when called upon, unable to think for herself, much less drive a car.
And then there's Shabnam Lutafali. Besides being a devout Muslim, the Pakistan native is a doctor of economics and a professor at the University of Houston-Downtown. She also serves as the president of the Southwest regional board for the Ismaili Muslims, followers of the Aga Khan.

Like most Ismailis, Lutafali believes that being Muslim and being a competent, active woman are not mutually exclusive.
