"Community Service through Community Participation"
"There are three types of people in this world. There are people who make things happen, there are people who see things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be amongst those who makes things happen" (RAJA AMAAR SHAUKAT TURK)
Back in 70's Raja Mohammad Yousaf Khan Turk (a police officer of AJK police and a social scientist) sensed the need to organize people of Turk clan on a common platform for their better development & growth. He was the one who was bestowed by Allah with the ideology to make things happen. Since his maturity Raja Mohammad Yousaf Khan Turk carried out research work on histories of different clans and always try to extract and project good about his clan TURKS through authentic resources and books. He had an influential personality and strong social figure through which he was always connected with the active people of the society especially with the notable people of his clan.
In the year 1976 distinguished think-tanks of Turk clan from all over Azad Kashmir were contacted upon by Raja Mohammad Yousaf Khan Turk. This think-tank was composed of Raja Fazal-ur-Rehman Turk (Schawai Village AJK), Prof. Afsar Khan Usmani (Garhi Dopatta Village Muzaffarabad), Raja Mohammad Ayub Khan (Madar Mandal), Ali Akbar Khan Turk (Chanjal), Lal Khan Turk (Gaipura), Marshal Mohammad Latif Khan (Sanwarian), Raja mohammad Yaqoob Khan (Muzaffarabad city) & Raja Mohammad Ashraf Khan (Muzaffarabad City).
He told them that time has arrived to organize people of Turk clan on a common platform to serve their needs and to give them a recognition. After mutual coordination a grand meeting was organized and held at the residence of Raja Mohammad Yousaf Khan Turk in Muzaffarabad "the capital of Azad Kashmir".
All dignitaries of Turk clan from all areas of Azad Kashmir attended this meeting. The said grand meeting went very successful and all agenda points of the meeting were discussed in detail. Raja Mohammad Yousaf Khan Turk focused on his vision of the creation of a non-political, social organization that will unite the scattered people of Turk clan under its umbrella. With mutual consent of the participants of grand meeting the milestone of Turk Welfare Association AJK (TURKWA AJK) was laid by the grace of Almighty Allah. Raja Mohammad Yousaf Khan Turk was elected and nominated as life time Patron-En Chief of "Turk Welfare Association AJK". This is how TURKWA AJK ceased into existance
