Here is a summary of Phase 2 of our Digital Projector and Teacher Training in Panchthar District:
Sandesh Poudel and his team headed back to the Shree Siddheshwori Madhyamik Vidyalaya school to implement phase 2. They spent 4 days at this remote location installing a digital projector and conducting a teacher training. The new teacher was hired with funds provided by WHN. The projector will be used in conjunction with the 5 computers installed during phase 1 of this project.
Because of the remote location the school is off of the grid. There are solar panels that provide enough electricity to run the computers. Sandesh is looking into the possibility of increasing the solar grind so that a larger computer lab can be set up. A battery back up system is also needed as the whole system goes down without sunlight.
By working closely with the school administration and also testing the students to see how they are progressing Sandesh and his team are insuring the success of the program. It is a 750 kilometer journey to reach this remote area.
Relief aid, while well intentioned, often ends up in the pockets of corrupt local bureaucrats and/or multinational contracts, with very little reaching the people that actually need it. Ensure that your contributions reach those in need.
