Nepal House: A Concept Paper The Non-Resident Nepalese Association (NRNA) in Korea, with the cooperation and coordination of all Nepalese associations/organizations and individuals in Korea, is planning to establish a centre called “Nepal House”. The main objective of this Centre is to help to the Nepalese people suffered in Korea due to various reasons by providing temporary shelter. This will be a non-profitable work carrying out on humanitarian ground. In addition to this, information on different aspects of Nepal i.e. natural beauties, socio-culture, historical facts and many more will be displayed in the centre which can be accessible to all people. Similarly, informative materials on opportunities on foreign investment in Nepal and business related matters will also be kept there. How it was thought? As the number of Nepalese people increased in Korea, Nepal Consulting Committee was established which was helpful to the Nepalese people. Following the establishment of the Embassy of Nepal in Korea, Employment Permit System (EPS) came into effect and as a result of EPS workers, the number of Nepalese people have substantially increased and will continue in the future. From time to time it has been seen that some people have been without shelter due to not having job or other reasons. Keeping in view of this fact, the NRNA, Korea thought that establishment of such Centre can be a helping hand in providing temporary shelter and other co-operations needed to the helpless Nepalese people in Korea. Location of Nepal House? It will be established at appropriate location convenient to the visitors both Nepalese and foreigners. How it will begin? - To start with renting a few rooms/flat and will be improved through coordination and consultation. - The NRNA, Korea will focus on providing the rooms to the helpless Nepalese people in Korea to use for a temporary shelter. - Side by side, the extra rooms can be used as the exhibition halls for displaying the various Nepal promotion materials.


Responsible Authority The NRNA, Korea will take overall responsibility for establishing and running the Nepal House. In course of time, it will prepare the guidelines and later on constitute a Sub-committee which will take care and run the centre in a transparent manner. The NRNA, Korea will make a provision of a patron and an advisory body for effectively running it in the long term. Cost It can begin with about 30 million Korean Won and approximately 150 million Korean Won will be needed to cover up this project. Income sources? - It is envisioned that income from the charity programs, contributions from the Nepalese Associations/Organizations and individuals in Korea as well as the Non-Nepalese organizations and individuals will be its main income sources. - NRNA, Korea will request the Government of Nepal and other private sectors to help provide for the displaying materials. - If the Nepal House could be developed to the standard of mini-museum, a short of fee can be charged to the visitors like school children and others. Reliability of the plan So far NRNA’s have been established in 55 countries and will continue to expand it in other countries as well. NRNA has been established in Korea also and gradually developing it as an organization. In carrying out different creative activities, NRNA, Korea, is committed to play a leading role in fostering this small but meaningful project. Since this is being established for the common purpose, the NRNA, Korea requests to all the Nepalese Associations and individuals to extend their maximum co-operations both in materials and idea. We also request and appreciate to all Non-Nepalese organizations and individuals for their all kinds of generous help. Thank you NRN, KOREA

HCC What is a community Center? „




„ „

Ap place where all interested Nepalis p can g gather to Celebrate Nepali p culture, such as Dasain, Tihar, Holi, Krishna Asthami, Ram Nawami, Nepali New year, Lhosar, Nhu daya Vintuna, etc. A place which can help bring Nepali musicians, artists, and spiritual leaders to perform and speak on various aspect of Nepal. A place for the community members to perform marriage, Bratbandh and other social rituals. A point of contact for all Nepalis, who have need and are seeking f h for help. l A place to consolidate resources to help the community we live. A business that can increase in value by many fold in long run


HCC Why East Bay? „ „



Location is g good for such business operation p Due to real estate value decline, the desired property may be more affordable. Most Nepali population in Northern California is concentrated in this area. The local Community is less resistance to such centers than in many other areas.


HCC Cont…. What is the project Mechanics? p y ƒ Create Limited Liabilityy Company ƒ Sell 1000 each Units (shares) and raise $1mil ƒ Purchase a failed or inoperative warehouse or Church or any building with big halls ƒ Upg Upgrade/modify ade/ od y the t e Building/facility u d g/ ac ty to meet eet the community center criteria


HCC How is it going to work? „ Each Unit holders will have one voting rights, just like in any publically traded Company „ The Community center will be owned by the partners and run like a business by the limited active partners g the proxy p y support pp of the general g partners p through „ The initial partners, those buy share in first two years fo the partnership, will become as the founding partners; and as founding g partners, p , their names will be engrave g in the visible wall of the Center „ Partners may transfer or sell their share at their will


HCC Why are we optimistic of this idea „ „



Profitable venture not a donation Required only 1000 people’s participation p byy some estimate out of six thousand Nepalis In next five years Nepali population is expected to g grow byy manyy folds,, making g easier to sell more shares for future expansion Community feels need and seems to be energized by the idea 8

HCC What has happened so far? „ HCC Committee has been formed „ The committee is comprised of active members of Nepali p communityy from San Jose to Sacramento „ So far, four committee meetings have been already conducted „ Bylaws has been written and conceptually agreed by the committee 9

HCC What has Cont…. „



Initial fund for Article of incorporation and other expenses has been collected Domain Name - has been reserved And,, HCC website work has been partially p y completed


HCC What is next? ƒ Finish Bylaws ƒ Incorporate Company ƒ Conduct NCC road show throughout the Nepali community in Northern California ƒ Conduct Special events to sell NCC share g share pledge p g campaign p g ƒ Begin ƒ Issue share and collect money ƒ Conduct board of directors election after 500 issuance off Shares h ƒ Make final decision on location and type of center
