::Who, where and what we are doing::
KPDN’s projects range from immediate disaster relief to cultural, educational, and health activities in the community. It worked to include Kalasha in the National Database in Pakistan and added the Kalasha religion to the NADRA Database in February 2015. The organization continues to hold seminars and workshops on Kalasha conservation efforts and runs the Kalasha Academy for Computer Sciences (KACoS), which provides basic information, communications, and technology facilities in the remotest valleys of Pakistan to bring new skills to local youth and broaden their livelihood opportunities. KPDN also helped the Kalash Medical Center, provided medical equipment, and organized free medical camps in the Kalasha valleys. The group's other activities include working on Kalash women's empowerment projects, starting the Ishpata News Network and other media initiatives, and responding to flood disasters in 2010, 2013, and 2015 by helping mobilize locals and organizing relief and rehabilitation activities.
