NANT was founded in 2007, as a result of combined effort from community members it has got its full shape and finally was registered as an organization in 2008 and incorporated under the Association Act on 11 March 2010.
It was an outcome of an intense discussion and desire to serve the Nepalese community in a formal and well organized approach through an organization. Its founders felt the need of a Nepalese Community organization that would cater to the needs of new Nepalese immigrants, students and also those who were already residing in the Northern Territory, Australia.
That very essentiality became the cause of its birth. Thanks to all the founder members, volunteers, advisers and well-wishers that felt this need during those tough times and has brought forward NANT as one of the emerging communities in the Northern Territory.
