  • Mission statement

    The Uspar (AJK) H&E Trust is a Leeds based charity registered with the UK Charities Commission.
    Its objectives are as follows:
    1) To provide adequate educational facilities for the benefit of the deprived children living in the rural area of Chakswari in Kashmir,
    2) To relieve sickness and distress and promote good health by assisting the work of the Chakswari Health Clinic.

    Uspar is a charity set up to help the people of Chakswari and the surrounding areas in Azad Kashmir (Pakistan). Political instability and a sharp decline in state funding for all public services over the years has resulted in the area suffering from some of the worst poverty in the Northern sub-continent. Lives are often lost due to inadequate treatment being available with even common ailments remaining untreated for months. Education is the key to help the children of the area realise their potential and eventually help the area break free from corruption and poverty. This is a long-term commitment which needs work to start now.
