EPL, GF join hands for a cause

Kathmandu, September 20

EPL Pvt Ltd, the organizers of the Everest Premier League and Governance Facility, which is working on the issues of Nepali migrant workers, joined hands to work together for a cause.

The two parties would promote the campaign ‘Promoting the Dignity of Migrant Workers’ during the Everest Premier League slated for December at the Tribhuvan University Stadium.

Head of Programme at Governance Facility, Caroline Vandenabeele said the EPL would be the best platform to promote the campaign as the tournament was one of the most popular events of the country. “We are here to promote the dignity of Nepali migrant workers as they have been sending huge amount of money to the country. But they are not getting respect in their work place and back in the country. We are happy to be associated with the EPL which has a huge audience,” said Vandenabeele.

Governance Facility Deputy Head Shalini Tripathi said the organisation wanted to use the platform for the campaign. “We want to give the message that the migrant workers are not alone,” Tripathi.

EPL Pvt Ltd President Amir Akhtar said all the marquee players would join hands for the cause, while exhibitions and interaction programmes would be held to promote the campaign.

Kathmandu Kings XI, Lalitpur Patriots, Biratnagar Warriors, Bhairahawa Gladiators, Pokhara Rhinos and Chitwan Tigers are competing in the event, with Sompal Kami, Gyanendra Malla, national team skipper Paras Khadka, Sharad Vesawkar, Shakti Gauchan and Dipendra Singh Airee being marquee players.
