In 2019, we completed our second computer centre cluster in the Syangja District. In the same year, we were able to commence a new cluster in the Lamjung District.
We were fortunate enough to have been invited by Dr Rajendra Ghimire to support the Shree Laxmi School in Shree Manjang, the village where he was raised. Rajendra accompanied us on a three-hour jeep ride to the remote school where we received a warm welcome from the school community. The school had a dedicated building where we were able to install ten laptops.
On our way to the village, Rajendra recounted his time as a student at the Laxmi School, and the journey he made from the village to a university in Kathmandu. After completing his law degree, Rajendra was offered a scholarship to attend the University of Wollongong in Australia, where he was awarded a PhD. He returned to Nepal to pursue a law career and is now the Chief Attorney General for the Gandaki Province. The school community expressed their deep respect for their former student during our welcome ceremony. He is an inspiration and an example to the students that, with a good education and effort, they could also realise their dreams of a prosperous future.
We delivered and installed ten Lenovo laptops with the latest Windows 10 and Microsoft Office software with an external mouse for each computer. The laptops enable the school to have a computer teaching facility that could service the school adequately and run classes that allows a one student to one computer experience.
