The Asian Study Group was created in Islamabad and served as a voluntary organisation from 1973- 2016 and on December 4, 2015, it was established as a Trust. 

As an apolitical, non-profit organisation,  its purpose is to enable members of the community, both foreign and Pakistani, to learn more about the culture, geography, history, religions, environment, crafts and customs of the Asian region in general, and of Pakistan in particular.

Lectures, discussion meetings and other events are organised regularly. Trips to various parts of Pakistan are arranged throughout the year. Hikes are taken in the nearby hills, and walks in various regions provide an opportunity to observe local plants and wildlife. Ideas for new activities are always welcome from members. Difference sub-groups catering to special interests meet at least once each month.
