About Us

Kashmir Family Aid is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Bend, Oregon.

Our primary goal is to counter poverty in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir by providing secular education assistance to quake-affected children.

Our primary objectives:

*Building schools, providing supplies and paying teachers.

*We seek corporate sponsorship and welcome individual contributions.

*We recruit volunteers to go to Pakistan and Azad Kashmir with us to meet the children and teachers, acting as goodwill emissaries.

Our general operating principles:

*Integrity: We abide by all local, state, federal and international laws.

*Transparency: We have bullet-proof methodologies for making sure the money you donate is spent exactly how we promised. We always allow donors to follow their money and see how it is spent. We will open books to anyone that asks and post photos of people receiving funds on this Web site.

*No politics, no religion: We are not tied to any political or religious cause.



We are looking for corporate sponsors and individuals to sustain several projects in Azad Jammu Kashmir and in Pakistan, ranging from building a school in the tiny, high elevation and very remote village of Serli Sacha, to assisting The Sewara Foundation that has schools in Muzaffarabad and elsewhere in Azad Kashmir and the Gilgit-Baltistan region ("Northern Areas") of Pakistan. We are also coordinating aid through IBTIDA foundation. For more information, contact me :
