The Nepalese Australian Association (NAA) was established in 1976 with the objectives of assisting newly arrived Nepalese and to act as an unofficial embassy in providing information about Nepal to Australians.
Since the establishment of this Nepalese & Australian Association, there has been an increase in Nepali population in Sydney. With the removal of White Australia Policy in the 60’s and opening the door to the Asian skilled people in the 80’s, Australia experienced influxes of skilled migrants and visitors from all around the world including Nepal. Further, the acceptance of private fee paying Asian students by the Australian universities encouraged Nepalese to come to study in Australia. We also saw influxes of Nepalese looking for a safe home after the outbreak of the insurgency in Nepal.
Children’s Talent Night
The objective of this program is to provide second generation Nepalese children the opportunity to involve in social activities and showcase their talents.
The concept of the Children Talent Night was born with the aim of brining out the talents of new generation of children.
From time to time, there has been a need of helping out Nepalese community members. Be it in an event of medical urgency in Australia or some humanitarian assistance back in Nepal or other countries, NAA and Nepalese community members have always been willing to contribute their bit in all such events where possible.
People come to Australia to secure a better life for themselves and their families. But for many life can be very challenging due to various reasons including loneliness, difficulties with completing a course, stress from work/personal lives or even due to career, family and relationship issues.
