Support Alliance française de Karachi

Saturday 20th February 2016

Briefly, the Alliance Française de Karachi is one of the city’s premiere cultural institutions, promoting good relations between Pakistan and France. It is generally thought that Alliance Française is funded by the Government of France. In fact it is a Pakistani organization, with a Pakistani board of members. It has the support of the French Embassy for the French part of the yearly cultural program. It is a not-for-profit institution, and has been teaching French, hosting cultural and academic events, conferences, panels, concerts, art exhibitions, and much more for the last SIXTY years.

Alliance Française will launch a fundraising program for two exciting projects: a beautiful modern art gallery and a residence for visiting scholars, writers and artists from France and elsewhere. Both of these projects will add immensely to Karachi’s cultural scene, and yet we cannot do this without outside help.

A Fund Raising Gala Dinner is planned February 20th, 2010 by JS GROUP & AfK for the purpose:

  • A grand dinner with H.E. the Ambassador of France, Mme Martine Dorance and Mr. Ali Jehangir, Chief Executive Officier, Mahvash and Jahangir Foundation (MJSF)
  • A musical concert with the Trio La Bande à André (France) and The Indus Gypsies Band (Pakistan)
  • Donations, dance… and more

Joharas Alatas (, President of Alliance française ; JFrancois Chénin (, Director of Alliance Française or Iqbal Bhimla, General Secretary ( will be happy to answer any queries on your part about the gala, or the projects at AFK.
