About NAFA

  • NAFA is a Brisbane based non-political, not-for-profit, non-government organisation without religious affiliation and run entirely by volunteers in Australia and Nepal. NAFA members visit Nepal each year at their own expense to monitor projects.
  • NAFA has been operating for over 25 years and has a proven track record in supporting successful sustainable, grass roots community development projects in Nepal in both rural and urban areas.
  • NAFA works in close collaboration with the growing Nepali community in Brisbane, the Nepal Association Queensland (NAQ). NAQ provides social support and activities to the local Nepalese community (including Nepali students studying in Queensland) and assists NAFA with its fundraising activities.
  • NAFA holds two major fundraising events each year in Brisbane - Nepali New Year Dinner (May) and Nepal in the Park (August).
  • NAFA is a vibrant organisation whose members share a love of Nepal and a desire to make a worthwhile contribution to Nepal's development.
