In the aftermath of the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake, thousands of students in the affected areas were left without safe spaces for education. After supporting immediate relief efforts, AirAsia Foundation partnered with OLE Nepal to launch the campaign “To Nepal with Love” and raised over USD 200,000 to rebuild earthquake safe schools in remote parts of Gorkha.
Students of the newly constructed Olang Primary School in Gorkha are featured in the picture above. They have been attending classes in their new earthquake resistant school and learning on laptops.
Open Learning Exchange Nepal (OLE Nepal) is a social benefit organization dedicated to enhancing education quality and access through the integration of technology in classrooms. Since its inception in 2007, OLE Nepal has pioneered the use of technology in schools and provided open and free access to quality education and
innovative learning environments to children.
Our mission is to improve the quality of education and reduce the disparity in access to quality education across geographic regions, school types and population groups by integrating technology in the teaching-learning process.
E-Pustakalaya – Free and Open Digital Library
Our digital library, E-Pustakalaya, is a collection of thousands of books and educational resources, course content and reference materials. E-Pustakalaya has dual aim to develop reading habits among children by providing them free and open access to age-appropriate reading materials and to encourage them to learn through independent research and inquiry.
We Train Teachers
We recognize that teachers are at the center of any transformation in our classrooms. Our three-stage training program ensures that even teachers with little or no prior experience with technology can gain the skills and confidence necessary to improve teaching-learning process and enhance education using technology.
We design and deploy Technology Infrastructure
Deploying technology infrastructure in under-resourced rural schools is not an easy task. We seek innovative solutions based on low-power, low-cost and durable technology that fit the requirements of rural schools.
