About

Our Objectives

We conduct and publish research and provide training.

We undertake charitable activities which include supporting disabled people and their families, providing financial support to disadvantaged families in their daughters’ marriages, and empowering local women. We also offer scholarships to needy students.

You can read more about the Foundation’s objectives in our articles of association.

We publish materials including books, research reports, digital, audio, video content, and collect/distribute donations for charitable causes.

Although, the founding members of the PFP were journalists and media professionals, over time the organization has attracted the attention of other working groups, especially youth, women, minorities, activists, and professionals in different spheres of human interest.

Our Background

Press for Peace was established in 1999 as a non-governmental organization. It initially focused on local issues in Muzaffarabad, Azad Jammu, and Kashmir. In the beginning, the priorities were set to focus on the sad plight of different segments of society including working journalists, prisoners, minorities, highly vulnerable children, and women.

Partnership

Press for Peace -registered as Press for Peace Foundation in the UK, has a policy of making alliances and partnerships with like-minded people and organizations around the globe as this approach has worked successfully in the past. The enormity and multitude of community issues cannot be addressed by a single aid organization, charity, or NGO. We always welcome local small groups, NGOs, CSOs, government agencies, and international organizations to develop a meaningful partnership with us in achieving our shared goals.
