Outreach

The Foundation Baltistan also works in the north of Spain, trying to bring the realities of Baltistan and Pakistan to our society.

We believe it is necessary to overcome the biased and limited views offered to us by the world media regarding Pakistan and its people. We want to make the plight of the people of Baltistan known to the international community; a culture and a community that has been pushed into oblivion by the central government of Pakistan.

With the aim of generating a more critical understanding of the reality and injustices suffered by the inhabitants of the Hushe Valley, due to unfavourable geopolitical circumstances, discriminatory policies and acculturated ethnic groups in the valley. We have launched awareness campaigns in different areas: mother tongue and Tibetan languages, highlighting the problems of certain conservative traditions, hidden responses to sectarian interests and the lack of social equity, particularly gender.
