What does AFP do?
The Asian Foundation for Philanthropy is a UK-based charity which helps British Asians who want to make a difference to social and economic development in India. Using our network and research expertise, we provide avenues for donating, volunteering and fundraising towards grassroot causes.  
Grassroots charities
The organisations which we connect you with are in a remarkable position to provide opportunities to disadvantaged people. This is because they are often embedded within the communities that they are working to empower. 
The charities are run by local people and therefore they understand the challenges that the communities face better then anyone.
Building a partnership
As these charities are so 'local' in nature, they often find it difficult to attract the international support that they need. AFP is building a partnership between the British Asian community and grassroots charities in India in order to help address this.
We hope that our services will help unlock the huge potential which exists in the British Asian community to promote social and economic development in India. 
AFP is registered as a charity with Charity Commission – registration number 1110180. 
AFP is a registered Company Limited by guarantee number 5428988.
