Running a Computer Training Center in Remote Nepal
Eejot is a non-profit organization that runs computer training centers in remote areas of Nepal which has minimal or no electricity. In last two years, we have taught 100+ primary, middle school and high school students who had not seen a computer before how to use word processor, spreadsheets etc. This session will talk about innovative approaches we took to have required resources such building, computer hardware, training materials as well as training the trainers.
