The essential purpose of APNA will be to promote Punjabi in all communities of the Punjab. Therefore, it is intended to be a non-political, non-religious, non-racial and gender neutral organization. To achieve this purpose, APNA will stress on the following activities:
(1) Teach written Punjabi in all parts of the Punjab. It will encourage the learning of Shahmukhi and Gurmukhi scripts by all Punjabis.
(2) Special efforts will be made to involve Punjabi females who are going to be the most important factor in influencing the future of the Punjabi language. No "mother tongue can survive unless it has the blessings of the mothers."
(3) To overcome the geographical limitations, APNA intends to transcribe the essential Punjabi literature in all scripts (Shahmukhi, Gurmukhi and possibly Hindi) and make arrangements to publish them in India, Pakistan and abroad.
(4) APNA will publish a Punjabi magazine that can be monthly or quarterly. However, the magazine will be published both in Shahmukhi and Gurmukhi scripts.
(5) APNA will establish a theater and film group to produce Punjabi stage plays, TV plays and films.
(6) APNA will establish a library for books and audio-visual material for the purpose of preservation and education.
(7) APNA will make arrangements to import the Punjabi books magazines and newspapers from East and West Punjab in order to keep the community updated.
(8) APNA will arrange seminars and workshops on subjects related to the Punjab and Punjabi.
