Founder’s Day 2018

Celebrating the Difference We Make…Together!

On Thursday, June 7th, friends gathered for NYF’s annual Founder’s Day event. With Olga’s 93rd Birthday and another year of bringing life-changing programs to impoverished Nepali children and families – there was much to celebrate!

Many thanks to our inaugural Host Committee members and silent auction donors for their special support. The new silent auction added some fun bidding wars to the evening, and raised essential funds for our work.

Additional highlights included having NYF President Som Paneru and NYF-Nepal Executive Director Raju Dhamala in from Nepal to share the latest updates on our programs, and special guest Dr. Arzu Rana Deuba.

Dr Rana Deuba – a former Member of Parliament of Nepal and celebrated gender activist and social worker – and her husband, former Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, are good friends of NYF. As such, Dr. Rana Deuba had many accolades to share about the birthday girl and guest of honor, Ms. Olga Murray!
