"AKCHHAR" by Nepal Student Society
Nepal Student Society (NSS) is a non-profit, non-political student organisation of Nepalese students in Bangladesh. Besides rendering help to its members, it also provides ground for various academic as well social activities and interaction with other fellow students.

In view of that, the NSS was established on 17th August 2007 and started its activities from February 2008. NSS will continue to uphold the dignity of Nepal and Nepalese students in Bangladesh while abiding by the student code of different universities and colleges in Bangladesh.
* Promote understanding, friendship, integrity, and cooperation amongst NSS members in Bangladesh.
