DTM Ranjit Acharya’s Toastmasters journey began in1997 when he joined the Kathmandu Toastmasters club, which was the only club at that time in Nepal. In the year 2004, he founded the second club of Nepal, the Everest Toastmasters club. Later, from 2006-2008, heled this club as its President.
He went on to sponsor and mentor four more clubs. One of his biggest contributions to Toastmasters came in the year 2017when helped all of Nepal’s clubs in the alignment with District 41. At this point, he was appointed as Area Director of Division I, Area 2. His ceaseless involvement as a Toastmaster resulted in the addition of three clubs in his term as Area Director for area I2.
