  • Local Community Information

The Pakistan Association of New York Capital District has been active in organizing various cultural programs in the Capital district area for the last 35 years. Currently we have more than 700 Pakistani families living in the area, many of which are part of PakNYCap (Pakistan Association of NY Capital District).

Since 1988, PakSA (The Pakistani Students’ Association at RPI), a Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Student Union funded cultural organization, has been presenting and promoting Pakistani culture to the RPI campus and catering to the needs of students and the community with Pakistani heritage. The Annual Spring Jashn show gathers a crowd of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate the culture through a comedy skit with performances. Since 1990, we have been airing a radio program, “Awaz-e-Pakistan”, at WRPI, Troy, 91.5 FM every Saturday between 10 a.m. and noon.
