At the age of 64 Olga Murray, a lawyer at the California Supreme Court, went to Nepal. She fell in love with the country and the people, especially the children. Since then, now at the age of 87 she has dedicated her life to helping the needy in Nepal. She has impacted thousands of lives directly and also through the organization Nepal Youth Foundation (www.NepalYouthFoundation.org), an organization she started.

Her 87th. birthday was celebrated in San Francisco on May 30th 2012. It was an opportunity not only to celebrate the birthday of this remarkable woman but also to thank all the friends that have donated their time and money to this noble cause.

During the occassion Nick Prior (Chairman NYF Board) thanked all those involved with NYF. Olga spoke about the story of Som Paneru who is now appointed the President of NYF. She highlighted the extraordinary achievement of Som from him humble beginnings to now the President of NYF.

Som talked about the history of NYF and how the budget has grown from a $300,000 US to now $2 million. This is a non-profit run solely through the grants and donations of well-wishers who have recognized the incredible humanitarian effort of NYF.

The celebration program also included a video of Nepal Youth Foundation (see below). Written, Directed, Photographed, and edited by Roy Cox. Robin Mortarotti, Associate Producer, Co-Director-Photographer.

NYF children from Nepal made a special video wishing Olga a Happy Birthday (see below). Local friends in the SF Bay Area also sang her a Happy Birthday song.
