KFA Founder Sam Carpenter

January 07, 2006

Sam Carpenter is founder of Kashmir Family Aid. He is one of a handful of westerners not affiliated with major NGO’s in the Northern Pakistan and AJK region and has been able to roam freely throughout the highly secured area. He returned to Azad Kashmir in October 2006 with his wife Linda to distribute funds. Some of his published articles and photographs are posted within this site (see Resources and Photos).

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 :
