Message from the President of JUAAN

Namaste and こんにちは!

Welcome to JUAAN, the Japanese University Alumni Association of Nepal!

JUAAN serves as a common platform for all of us who have graduated from any university in Japan. Our association is a testament to the exceptional education and experiences we received in Japan, which have significantly shaped our lives and careers. Together, we possess a wealth of knowledge, skills, and connections that can contribute to the progress and development of both Nepal and Japan.

We extend our sincere appreciation to the Government of Japan for their unwavering support and logistics during our higher studies. Their dedication to fostering educational opportunities for Nepali students in Japan has played a pivotal role in shaping our success. Now, as alumni, it is our turn to pay it forward and make a meaningful impact on society.

During our tenure, we aim to strengthen the bond between Nepal and Japan, nurturing the Nepal-Japan friendship that has flourished over the years. Our friendship is built on shared values, mutual respect, and a commitment to collaboration. By fostering cultural exchanges, promoting academic partnerships, and facilitating networking opportunities, we can further enhance the bilateral relationship between our two nations.

Together, let us embrace our collective vision: “Empowering alumni, Enriching  communities, and Enhancing the Nepal-Japan relations” (सदस्यहरूको सशक्तिकरण र समुदायहरूको समृध्दी – नेपाल जापान सम्बन्धहरूमा मजबुती). This slogan encapsulates our commitment to harnessing the potential within our alumni network and channeling it towards making a positive difference in our communities. By focusing on these key areas, we aim to create a lasting impact that benefits not only our alumni but also the wider society and the bilateral relationship between Nepal and Japan.

The strength of our association lies in the active engagement and participation of each member. We encourage all of our members to share your ideas, expertise, and resources to make JUAAN a vibrant and impactful organization. Together, we can create a strong support system for fellow alumni, foster lifelong connections, and contribute to the development of Nepal and Japan.

We are excited and optimistic about the next two years, and we look forward to working closely with each of the JUAAN members and collaborate with the organizations to achieve our shared goals. Let us seize this opportunity to inspire, collaborate, and make a lasting difference.


がんばりましょう! これからも よろしく おねがいします!!
