ABOUT US

NRN-Denmark is the national coordination council of NRNA in Denmark, which serves as an umbrella organization of all Nepalese in Denmark.

Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) was established with the purpose of uniting and binding the Nepali Diaspora under one umbrella on 11 October, 2003. In the course of completing 10 years of its existence NRNA has developed into a non-governmental global organization and a network of Nepali origin by establishing National Coordination Council (NCC) in 69 countries to represent its interests, concerns and commitments. Wherever we Nepalis may go or settle, whichever nationality we may possess, we never forget our land of origin, the land which holds our identity and soul. We rejoice in the achievement of our beloved country and her people and are disheartened by their sufferings and failures. Our belief:“Once a Nepali you always remain a Nepali”, is reinforced by our commitment to streamline our energy and resources for the transformation of the Nepali society. It is the duty and responsibility of every nation to promote, represent and safe guard the welfare of its nationals or people of its origin having foreign nationality and this will ultimately be in the interest of the nation. The national interest that can be fulfilled by the diasporas has not been hidden from the international arenas. The network of Nepali Diaspora represented by NRNA has developed itself into a formidable force that can represent Nepali interest globally. Keeping all these in mind, the Government of Nepal has given legal status to Nepali Diaspora by promulgating Non-Resident Nepali Act 2064. For practical purposes Nepali citizens living outside South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) member countries or People of Nepali Origin (PNO) holding foreign nationality other than SAARC nations are considered as NRNs.

Non Resident Nepalese – Denmark is a Nepalese community organisation of the people of Nepal or Nepalese origin those who are living, working, studying and with other visa status. Although Denmark may not have a long history of Nepalese people in Denmark, but at recent years there has been an increase of Nepalese coming to Denmark to study, as a spouse and work or asylum seekers. There are few organisation representing Nepalese community in Denmark, but NRN-Denmark steps in to represent Nepalese of all level with a common interest in Denmark.
