We started a monthly e-newsletter “Voice of Senior Citizens” in English in 2011 that shares information on status of 60+ population of Nepal with more than 3000 concerned organizations and individuals across the globe. In 2012 we started publication of three-monthly 50 page magazine “senior citizens” to inform Nepali readers about globally ongoing activities for senior citizens.
