FONNJ(Friends of Nepal, NJ)has been a great source of inspiration, and it has been my good fortune to have helped fund their worth-while projects, including micro-loans, libraries, scholarships and the like. FONNJ could be a model for some other charitable organizations, insofar as return on investments and dollars going where they need to go and should go. My pleasure.

Friends of Nepal-NJ is successfully impacting lives in Nepal through education, job training, micro credit, sustainable livelihood project and meeting the basic human needs of clean water and hygiene training. As a volunteer, FONNJ has shown they are focused on long term results in peoples' lives. FONNJ is not interested in a simple fix, but is willing to look at a problem through different sets of eyes and develop an action plan to solve the real problems behind poverty. FONNJ programs are preparing future leaders in Nepal, and will continue to produce well educated and trained Nepalese to lead their country into the future.

I am very impressed with the work Friends of Nepal is doing in the our community here and in our homeland Nepal. Especially, the latest project to teach young people about their culture and language. This type of programming encourages community involvement and gives greater opportunities for young people to learn about their cultural heritage.

Scholarships and micro-credit program is also making a big difference in the lives of many poor people in Nepal.
