Founder’s Day 2022
On Tuesday, June 7, 2022, the NYF community celebrated another “Founder’s Day” event on Zoom. This year, we honored founder Olga Murray’s 97th birthday and the 5th anniversary of NYF’s permanent children’s home, Olgapuri Children’s Village! We also had an online auction with a wide variety of exciting items and experiences to bid on. Congratulations to all the winners!
We are so pleased to share that our final fundraising amount totaled over $130,000! Thank you and dhanyabad to all those who attended and contributed. To watch the recording and read more about the event, please visit our recap blog post here.

In addition to celebrating Olga’s birthday and the 5th anniversary of Olgapuri Children’s Village, we heard from our lovely guest speakers, Bishnu Chaudhary and Jeena Maharjan. Near the end of the event, we also introduced an exciting new program, called the Caste Equality Project, aimed to help fight caste-based discrimination. Our attendees enjoyed this exclusive announcement with a beautiful video, followed by an explanation from Som and Olga.
After hosting several virtual events these last few years, NYF has learned a thing or two about helping to make online events more enjoyable for more members of our community.
If you or one of your guests would benefit from an accommodation during any of our virtual events, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 415-331-8585. We are eager to do what we can to present accessible, joyous events to as many guests as possible!
