Building Local Partnership:New Jersey Nepali School

At Nepal Blogs, we are trying to team up with local organizations with strong social and advocacy focus so that we build an online audience and presence for them. These partnerships provide us with an opportunity to tap into social media and networking’s potential for community development. This is an effort to connect and share knowledge.

Last week, we introduced you to Nepali Women’s Global Network (NWGN), a North America based advocacy organization for women’s rights. Today we have Nepali School New Jersey.

“Nepali School in New Jersey began offering classes on September 18th 2010. This is first of a kind Nepali School in New Jersey offering Nepali Language and Cultural classes to children ages from 4 to 14. Classes are held at Basking Ridge and run most Saturdays from September to May.

Nepali School of NJ is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing an environment to all children interested in learning Nepali language and culture. The mission of Nepali school is to provide Nepali Language and Cultural classes every year for our community in New Jersey. School focuses on making learning fun so that students look forward to every class and benefit from the lessons.

Nepali School is run by volunteer parents of the children who are enrolled in classes. Each year one parent volunteers to be the School Operation coordinator and another parent volunteers as Classroom coordinator. The School Operation coordinator focuses on overall operation, structure development and continuity of the school. Classroom coordinator focuses on weekly class operation, program development, parents, teacher and students’ coordination and communications. Along with support from all parents of the School, we are also supported by Friends of Nepal – New Jersey (www.fonnj.org), which represents the Nepali Community in NJ.

I have personally visited the school often, though my daughter is too young to attend. They have created a warm and welcoming place, which also offers opportunity for local Nepali community to gather and share.
