Kashmiri Pandits’ Association, Mumbai  is a non-profit community association dedicated to enriching lives of people, especially the Kashmiri community. The main objective of Kashmiri Pandits’ Association, Mumbai (KPA) is the preservation, propagation, promotion of Kashmiri culture and social values. KPA, over the years has enriched the society through awareness programmes, educational initiatives, rehabilitation of destitute and ethnically displaced families, providing medical help and encouraging the younger generations to conserve Kashmiri heritage.

KPA can rightly claim the status of being the oldest Association of Kashmiri Pandits, since even much before the Association was formally registered in 1968, it was a group of some enthusiastic Pandit youngsters in Mumbai, who having found vocational security in early sixties, thought of establishing a communication line with their community members feeling lost in the vast metropolis after leaving their secured habitat of Kashmir.

Consequent upon enforced exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley in 1990, many displaced  families sought refuge in Mumbai over the past two decades and made the metropolis of Greater Mumbai, their home. The agony & pain of being uprooted from their homes, in effect, further strengthened their resolve to protect & uphold the cultural heritage of Kashmiri Pandits. Thus enthused & emboldened by new blood, KPA has also grown and is currently run by a board of 11 duly elected trustees, who meet at least 12 times in a year for their formal meetings. 

Our various cultural and social welfare initiatives over the years have seen us transform little seed into a tree today. We aim at securing more inclusive participation and co-operation of our community members towards the objectives and goals of KPA. For this, we are investing our full dedication, passion and zeal, in order to emerge as one of the best Kashmiri Pandits charitable organization globally, focusing greatly towards preservation of our rich cultural heritage.
