Sindhuli Computer Literacy Campaign Update

In October 2013, Youth for Nepal donated 8 computers, 1 power inverter and 1 printer to the Shree Madhyamik Vidyalaya (Secondary School), Pipalbhanjyang in the eastern district of Sindhuli as part of a Computer Literacy Campaign. In February 2014 we reported back with an update on the project from YFN's Suyog Shrestha.

Suyog visited the school again in December 2014 and has reported that the computer literacy program is going well and strong at the school, and that there is substantial interest in learning computers among the students.

Currently, two teachers are teaching computer classes to 6th and 7th graders. These students are expected to take the national School Leaving Certificate (SLC) examination in Computer Studies when they get to 10th grade. The curriculum is government-prescribed and uses standard textbooks. Other students from higher grades are also using the computers to learn at their own paces.

Additionally, we also got a chance to learn about a new library built in the school with donations from the Shiksha Nepal organization. Youth for Nepal has collaborated with Shiksha Nepal in the past to establish libraries in remote villages of Nepal.
