Who We Are !
Nepalese Association of Georgia (NAG) is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit and nonpolitical organization registered in Atlanta, Georgia since 2001.
Our Mission is to preserve, promote Nepali cultural heritage and foster mutual cooperation among Nepali and Friends of Nepal.
Nepal Youth Association of Atlanta (NYAA) was founded in 2000 in a small gathering among friends and family celebrating Dashain and Tihar festival. Since the inception of NYAA the Nepalese community in Georgia were growing in large. Nepalese were migrating to other cities throughout the state of Georgia.
In 2009 association made a bold decision to change its name from Nepal Youth Association of Atlanta (NYAA) to Nepalese Association of Georgia (NAG) to bond all Nepalese living in other parts of Georgia. But the motto of our association hasn’t changed “Brining all Nepalese and Friends of Nepal Together” to celebrate Nepal’s unique culture and festival in Georgia, and continue to offer philanthropic support in back home Nepal when possible.
