FIWNA celebrated its annual BBQ Event with a great gathering

Federation of Indigenous Women’s of Nepal in America had a great gathering of the people from different organizations and representation of diverse community groups in New York City this Saturday. The event was held at Queens bridge park New York with an especial event of BBQ and potluck as an annual event celebration.

The commitment of this program was to raise the fund from the tiny contributions of participants and to memorize our motherland Nepal together joining our hands and give the sense of 'we' feeling that we are from the same nation and the same origin. It also enhances the unity among the indigenous men and women and strengthens the bond among them to have a common understanding and goals. One of the most important parts of this event was to entertain the participants as many indigenous women of Nepal reside here with a busy schedule and being apart from their family. It becomes the most essential occasion to get together and experience the potluck dishes and share the happiness, which is a way to relief from the stress out of mind.



The president of SANGSANGAI Natasha Wozniak joined the event as a guest, who has been working in Nepal to rebuild the home for those who lost their home due to the earthquake. She was curious to know about the Indigenous Women’s of Nepal in America and became glad to share her experiences while revealing her opinion on that instance. She introduced to all of the executive and members of FIWNA and other participants and assured that she was highly interested in understanding and working together in the future.
