Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) was established with the purpose of uniting and binding the Nepali Diaspora under one umbrella on 11 October, 2003. In the course of completing 12 years of its existence NRNA has developed into a non-governmental global organization and a network of Nepali origin by establishing National Coordination Council (NCC) in 73 countries to represent its interests, concerns and commitments. Wherever we Nepalis may go or settle, whichever nationality we may possess, we never forget our land of origin, the land which holds our identity and soul. We rejoice in the achievement of our beloved country and her people and are disheartened by their sufferings and failures. Our belief:“Once a Nepali you always remain a Nepali”, is reinforced by our commitment to streamline our energy and resources for the transformation of the Nepali society. It is the duty and responsibility of every nation to promote, represent and safe guard the welfare of its nationals or people of its origin having foreign nationality and this will ultimately be in the interest of the nation. The national interest that can be fulfilled by the Diasporas has not been hidden from the international arenas. The network of Nepali Diaspora represented by NRNA has developed itself into a formidable force that can represent Nepali interest globally. Keeping all these in mind, the Government of Nepal has given legal status to Nepali Diaspora by promulgating Non-Resident Nepali Act 2064. For practical purposes Nepali citizens living outside South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) member countries or People of Nepali Origin (PNO) holding foreign nationality other than SAARC nations are considered as NRNs.

Message From The President

nrna president bhaban bhatta

As I embark on my tenure as President of Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA), with the slogan Beginning of a new era; united together’; I sincerely commit that I will live up to the motto of our association ‘For Nepali by Nepali’We aim to realize it by continuing to accelerate our efforts in innovation while working together with our esteemed members, like-minded institutions, and associates to harness our potentials to transform and help solve social issues.

I have deep admiration for each of the members of the association, you have chosen to join the premier social organization; solely dedicated to the betterment of Nepali Diaspora, migrant workers, and Nepal. I am aware of the long and odd hours you have committed to our association and it is through your continued dedication and support that NRNA has reached this height. I salute you all!

Continuation of ongoing projects and contributing to society through the creation of new values with innovative ideas, technologies, and products will be the major objective of my tenure. Integrating, attracting and nurturing the participation of the next generation diaspora into the NRNA movement is very crucial for its continuity, growth, and development and is high on my agenda.

Diasporas have been recognized as the catalyst for change and contribute significantly at the micro and macro levels of the economy of both; the countries of origin and residence. Residing in distant lands, Nepali Diasporas have succeeded spectacularly in their chosen professions by dint of their single-minded dedication and hard work. What is more, they have retained their emotional, cultural and spiritual links with their motherland.

It is for the benefit of the home country as well as the diaspora community that the potential and the promise of this huge reservoir of resources, human and economic, be harnessed to improve the lives of the Nepali people both at home and abroad. Nations that can tap on this niche, by addressing diaspora concerns, can generate the flow of knowledge, skill, and resources to complement their national efforts for development.

I place greater emphasis on sustainability and social responsibility. Our association must do its part to address multiple facets of social issues in tandem with our pursuit to unite and engage the Nepali Diaspora globally. We will continue to deliver our commitments by constant adherence to our mission and core values.

Bhaban Bhatta
