Welcome to NAFA

NAFA was formed in 1989 after the 30 volunteers from the Nepalese pavilion at Expo 88 wanted to help underprivileged people in Nepal and form friendships with the small Nepalese community in Brisbane. Today NAFA’s membership includes the original founders, people who have enjoyed visiting Nepal and many members of the Nepali community.

Since its inception, NAFA has funded over 50 projects in Nepal to a total value of $600,000.

The focus for 2016 fundraising is “Sustainable Rural Education and Development”Read more…
