Digital Village (IT)
What do we do?
The Digital Schools project is made in collaboration with the Danish NGO Trianglen. Together with Trianglen, ASK-Nepal provides rural schools with donated computers and internet connectivity at no cost to the schools or community. With the hardware installed, we help teach digital literacy and general IT knowledge to local educators and students. We have currently established 4 IT labs in Syangja district and have plans with Trianglen to expand the number of schools to 10 by 2020.
ASK-Nepal has established 4 IT Labs in rural schools thanks to donations from Trianglen. Each of the labs is installed with at least 15 iMac or PC computers donated from Danish schools, each with the necessary accessory items including mice and keyboards. We also work with local telecommunications companies to establish internet connectivity in the labs.
The Digital Schools program is designed to do more than simply put computers in schools. The program helps spread technical knowledge to schools in rural Nepal by training teachers and conducting lessons and competitions with students.
ASK-Nepal conducts a volunteering program in conjunction with the Digital Schools project. In 2018, more than 20 foreign volunteers had the opportunity to stay in village communities, teach IT curriculum, and share their knowledge with students and local teachers alike.
We are very Happy to working with ASK and with this IT Program in Rural Village of Nepal.
