About Us

Pakistan is a country rich in cultural and ethnic diversity. Many of Pakistan’s people recognize the importance of preserving this wealth of cultural heritage, including Pakistan’s many languages. However, until recently there has been a lack of institutional support in this area. For this reason, the Forum for Language Initiatives (FLI) was founded in 2003. FLI’s intent is to function as a resource centre for the many language communities in Pakistan’s mountainous northern region.

Our Mission

Empowering language communities of Northern Pakistan to revitalize their linguistic and cultural heritage through research, training, education and advocacy.

Our Vision

We envisage integrated, diverse, sustainable and culturally recognized communities.
