Ajmal Samuel Foundation

The Ajmal Samuel Foundation (ASF) was borne out of a trip in 2019 where Ajmal, the founder, got together with a group of adventurous, big-hearted fellows and embarked on 'Krakin' thru China'. The endeavor saw a team of both able-bodied and disabled riders, taking 37 days to bike 2,315.17km from Beijing to Mohe, a border town near the China-Russia border. The team shared their experiences, their inspirations, their epiphanies, their blood & sweat along the way at workshops, campfires and even meals with local disability associations, communities and help groups. Wherever they pass by, their stories of perseverance and positive attitude inspired and resonated with the local communities. This whole trip was not only spiritually meaningful and fulfilling for the team, but more importantly, incredibly moving and inspirational for the local attendees.
 
Thus, Kashgar 2 Karachi (K2K) was born: a bona fide upgraded version of the 2019 trip. In Aug 2022, Ajmal and team hopes to do even more by hand-biking even further, more than 3,000km, from Kashgar, China to Karachi, Pakistan. During this month-long fundraising event, the team will share their inclusive message and spread their positive vibes. With proper planning and preparation, the team will make every stop count: reaching local disability  groups and communities. Last time, they had a navigator who suffered from cerebral palsy as seen in the video, this time, they may have a blind tandem-biker along the trip!

Throughout this trip, witness their effort and help us FUNDRAISE ONLINE.  Funds will be earmarked for select worthy beneficiaries. With another successful fundraising event, the Ajmal Samuel Foundation (ASF) plans to make this a signature annual project of the foundation. Who knows where and how far  Ajmal & team will go in 2023, 2024,2025.... ?

In case you are curious: the Ajmal Samuel Foundation (ASF) aims to make an impact fundraising for worthy charities and support a global effort to spread the message of inclusion for both the physically challenged and able bodied athletes. Its not just about being physical together, it is about setting achievable targets, going at it together for that noble, common cause --- anything is possible, together! Being disabled does not mean you do not get to enjoy life any less or achieve any lesser feats.
