Asian Foundation for Philanthropy (AFP) was established as a registered charity in 2005 to provide a channel for the South Asian Diaspora Group (SADG), predominantly Indians, to better engage with development initiatives in India.

Indians number 1.6 million (UK National Census) in the UK, and this is one of the largest population of Indians outside of India.
