PRESIDENTS MESSAGE
 

We as Pakistani Americans take pride in our heritage and rich cultural values. As immigrants to the “land of the free and Home of the Braves”, we have adopted USA as our new home. USA has provided us with the opportunity to fulfill our dreams and even give something back to our motherland, Pakistan. However, we are facing significant challenges since, Pakistani American community has suffered a lot of set backs in last 9 years as our image has been tarnished. It is only appropriate that while living in this multi cultural society, we should do our best to represent ourselves as the peaceful members and friendly neighbors to other communities.

Our goal is to keep the spirit of our Pakistani heritage alive in our youth, celebrate our heritage and bring Pakistani community together with a unity of purpose. APA provides Pakistani Americans with a platform to fulfill our charitable obligations and out reach projects. Thanks giving food drive and Toy drive on Eid and Christmas are such prime examples. It is an honor for us to have started these two projects in fall of 2007 and carried them on for last three years. There are many more goals to be accomplished: Helping the ailing humanity is one of them. Celebrating our culture & heritage in central Florida has been a source of enjoyment & pride for the community at large.

Please join hands with us with your thoughts, ideas, volunteerism and participation. Don’t forget to view our calendar of events so that you don’t miss out on any of the exciting shows or the charitable endeavors.

I look forward to your active participation.

Thank you,
Sincerely,

Khurram Shahzad
President
