About Association

This society was unofficially formed as Myagdi Samaj Sewa Samiti in 1998 by some enthusiastic myagdeli residing in Aldershot, UK. It was then officially established as Myagdi Overseas Nepalese Association UK (MONA UK) in 2006. This is non-profitable society with the vision of making unity and share our news and views amongst all Myagdeli in UK and around the world.

Those small numbers of enthusiastic Myagdel living in the Aldershot unofficially formed Myagdi samaj Sewa Samittee (1998) with an aim to help each other when needed.
