Pakistan: the Pride and the Promise

We talked to so many remarkable people and groups in Pakistan – meet them here on the film we made as we travelled around.  Be inspired by their insight, perseverance and courage.

The film is now part of the RSA’s Pakistan Calling festival which includes some fantastic work.

Interested?  Have links with Pakistan &/or with diaspora groups in the UK?  Get in touch as we plan the next steps.  London Boroughs Faiths Network, Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network and Stockwell Green Community Services is a strong coalition.

We’re pursuing our work to support strategic links between groups in the UK and in Pakistan which are strengthening civic society and which are building communities of peace.

The film of our London-Pakistan event with Rt Hon Justine Greening MP and Sadiq Khan MP will be available soon.  Our thanks go to the many people and groups we are working with and to the FCO for their initial grant under the Olympic Truce.
