In a recent issue of Asian Express, I read a report about British Asian Foundation and it was thrilling to learn the inspirational work of the foundation and opportunities for Pakistan and Pakistani youth. Its various facilities-clubs and societies provide very helpful and encouraging culture for young professionals. I know, it is not easy for many Pakistanis to detach themselves from Pakistan but a few are doing are providing help in practical. Mr. Kashif Zafar’s foundation is one of the inspirational examples that helps young people by promoting an ethos of Care for them. I must say that Kashif as the founder of British Pakistan foundation is an inspiration for Pakistanis in every field. Edit
