During their stay in Japan, they had formed organization and managed to collect some fund with the objectives to support activities focused on preservation and promotion of Limbu language and culture and uplift of socio-economic status of the Limbus in Nepal and for the welfare of the Limbus who have difficult situation in Japan. The fund is growing steadily. The amount of Rs 800,000.00 (Eight Hundred Thousand NRs) has been collected in the fund.
