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 nearly 164 projects in Nepal to a total value of $2,237,600 to 31 December 2018, including $864,990 to NAFA’s initial and rebuilding responses to the devastating earthquakes that struck Nepal in April and May 2015.
The focus for 2019 fundraising is to support sustainable development in remote and regional Nepal through education, health and infrastructure. Read more…
