The AAFS works in 3 continents, with Official Representatives in India, Pakistan, UAE, US, Canada & Greece, Indeed, the AAFS’ work in Pakistan has led to historic breakthroughs in promoting Hindu & Sikh religious rights – including the creation of official cremation grounds and also Krishna Mandir in Lahore. Inevitably, such historic achievements have attracted domestic controversy – and as a result – the AAFS office in Lahore was burnt down in 2012 and later broken into.

Britain has changed a great deal since I first arrived from Kenya in 1958, dispossessed of all but the idealism of my youth. I believe the voluntary sector has an essential role to play in meeting the epoch-defining issues that have arisen since the dawn of our new millennium.
For almost a quarter of a century, the Anglo Asian Friendship Society has been pioneering a new paradigm of grass roots political, social and community engagement.
