Dharan Samaj UK (DSUK) is a non-profitable communal organization which was established in 2007 in the United Kingdom. Our organizational ethos is “Dharanes for Dharan”.

People who live or have origin of Dharan are called “Dharane”. The word Dharane is ethnically and culturally very diversified which comprises of Rai, Limbu, Sunuwar, Newar, Gurung, Magar, Tamang, Brahmin and Kshetri.

Dharan is one of the major towns of Nepal. Geographically Dharan is situated in the Sunsari District of the Koshi Zone in the Eastern Nepal. It lies at the foothills of Mahabharat Range in the North and jungle (Charkose jhadi) in the South. Seuti river flows in the East and Sardu river in the West. Dharan interlinks Northern hilly regions and Southern plain regions enabling ease of trades between these two.

In 1953 British established the Gurkhas Recruiting Centre in Dharan, locally known as Ghopa Camp Dharan. It was the biggest Recruiting Centre of the Brigade of Gurkhas for many years. In 1989 the camp was closed and moved its scaled down version of Recruiting Centre to Pokhara in West Nepal. Shortly after its closure, Ghopa Camp became an ideal home place for the present B.P. Koirala Institute of Health Sciences (BPKIHS) and expanded its existing infrastructures by constructing additional buildings in the open area to the North.

Brigade of Gurkhas used to recruit five to six hundred men into Brigade every year from various part of East Nepal and they were flown to Hong Kong; the main base of the Brigade of Gurkhas. Hong Kong remained the home of Gurkhas until 1997. After the British government handed Hong Kong over to China in 1997; only small proportion of Brigade of Gurkhas moved to UK.

Following the changes in the immigration rules of the United Kingdom for Ex-Gurkha soldiers and their families Gurkhas started to immigrate to UK. Dharane community in the UK has been growing since. Majority of Dharanes living in the UK have connection to the Gurkhas in one way or the other.

Dharan Samaj UK was formed to bring all UK-Dharanes together to maintain and preserves the Dharane identity and promotes its unique cultures and traditions. Dharan samaj UK is one of the largest communities in the UK. The magnitude of the Ex-Servicemen of Dharan moving to the UK has brought a significant change in the expansion of Dharan Samaj UK and it will certainly continue to expand in the future.
