Cultural Preservation

The Ambassador’s Fund pledged its commitment to preserve Pakistan’s rich cultural heritage and safeguard the region’s precious cultural artifacts for future generations. Grant projects have supported the preservation of languages, dialects, art, music, dances, and architecture by training artisans in traditional handicrafts; training actors to demonstrate folklore; and renovating and re-purposing traditional buildings. This is an exclusive Ambassador’s Fund thematic area.
