Focus: Nepal (Virtual Program with CT UN Chapter)

Sunday, January 30 at 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This special program will showcase the work of the United Nations Association – CT chapter with SASANE, a non-governmental organization working with victims of sex trafficking in Katmandu. UNESCO plays a vital role in Nepal and is often recognized for this contribution around the world. We chose to focus on Nepal because of its rich culture and heroic people and because it is little known in the US for its outstanding contributions.

Our program “Focus: Nepal” will include a presentation about what is happening now in Nepal as well as its history, culture, and United Nations linkage.

The CT UN chapter will be hosting a major program in the Hartford area on Sunday, May 15th. The May 15th program which will include a short concert in the Nepalese style and tradition along with some Nepalese dances and tastes of a superb cuisine. There will also be an opportunity to purchase some classic handcrafts from outstanding craftspeople as well as Nepalese cookbooks that have been prepared by women survivors of human trafficking and gender based violence. 

Please register and a Zoom link will be sent out before the event.
