Suhail Rashid for KEI Ramadan 2018 fundraiser


If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people. - Confucius

Like you, I yearn for a better tomorrow for Kashmir’s besieged children. It is my conviction that providing access to quality education is the primary harbinger of social change, economic progress and a brighter future for our children, who continue to be the innocent victims of the decades long strife in Kashmir.

As Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.

KEI strives to enable change by providing resources, mentorship and experiential opportunities to a core group of underprivileged, but accomplished students who will serve as the torch bearers of our society tomorrow. Our core values of openness, transparency, accountability and a strong zeal to improve,  are reflected in our programs and activities. I strongly encourage all of you to learn more about our organization’s vision, its core values and activities by exploring this website , visiting our facebook page (, and by contacting any of our offices or office bearers.

Our annual report can be found here.

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today - Malcolm X

Please join me in preparing our young scholars for tomorrow by providing them with access to quality education. This quest for furthering the cause of learning cannot wait till tomorrow. A gift ranging from $500 to $700 fully sponsors a student for a year; and we are grateful for whatever support you are able to provide. Contributions of all sizes will be instrumental in shaping the destiny of our scholars in need.

Please feel free to contact me at with any questions that you might have.

Make a difference by Giving Now.
