NAFA aims to improve the physical, social, emotional and economic well being of people in Nepal through small development projects and to promote friendship between the people of Australia and Nepal.
Our theme for 2013 is: Achieving positive outcomes for disadvantaged communities and individuals in Nepal
The focus for fundraising for 2013 is: Sustainable health, educational and development projects in Nepal
The Nepal Australia Friendship Association (NAFA) was formed in January 1989 as the Australian Nepal Friendship Association (ANFA) Queensland. The name was changed to NAFA in 1993. NAFA is a Brisbane based non-political, non-profit, volunteer organisation without religious affiliation. Our aim is to improve the well being of individuals and communities in Nepal with an emphasis on women and children. NAFA has a proven track record in supporting sustainable, grass roots community development projects in Nepal in both rural and urban areas.
NAFA is run entirely by volunteers and 100% of tax deductible donations to NAFA’s Overseas Aid Fund are allocated directly to projects in Nepal. NAFA works in close collaboration with the growing Nepali community in Brisbane, who recently formed the Nepal Association Queensland (NAQ) to provide social support and activities to the local Nepalese community (including Nepali students studying in Queensland) and to assist NAFA with its fundraising activities.
NAFA holds a number of fundraising events throughout each year including a Nepali New Year Dinner and Nepal in the Park. NAFA is a vibrant organisation whose members share a love of Nepal and a desire to make a worthwhile contribution to Nepal’s development. New members are warmly welcomed.
NAFA holds general meetings open to all members on the first Tuesday of every month and an Annual General Meeting (AGM) in April.
