Portrait of Bhutanese Community in Syracuse MembersThe Bhutanese Community in Syracuse: Reflections on the 10th Anniversary of Resettlement

On Tuesday, April 17, the South Asia Center is fortunate to host a discussion with: Hari Adhikari, Jay Subedi, and Sajan Nepal.  In March 2008, the first Bhutanese Nepali individual, Hari Adhikari, arrived in Syracuse.  Adhikari was an influential figure in the refugee camps in Nepal and quickly became a leader in the Syracuse community.  He has worked relentlessly to empower younger members of the community, which resulted in the formation of the Bhutanese Community in Syracuse (BCS), a non-profit organization.  In this presentation, Subedi and Nepal, both members of BCS, will reflect on the challenges they have faced and what they hope for the future. 

This lecture will take place in 341 Eggers Hall at 4 pm. Please join us!
