Together with the Nepalese origin Americans and hundreds of new immigrants who are in the US through Diversity Visa (DV) program, experience a lot of confusion and sufferings in their day-to-day lives. They always seek support and direction. We, through ANWA, extend required services to them; however, we do not have expertise to handle all cases. Therefore, we coordinate and network with different DC based South Asian organizations that have expertise in different sectors so that we can refer the clients to the specialized organizations for specific service.
