We provide free and easy access to age-appropriate books that help improve children’s reading skills and develop a reading culture in schools. Our interactive digital learning modules, educational videos and reference materials help students do research projects and promote the habit of independent inquiry. We also have accessible books in Nepali language.
OLE Nepal has sought and received permissions from authors, publishers and organizations to add the materials that are found in E-Pustakalaya. An advisory panel consisting of prominent Nepali writers helped in the development of E-Pustakalaya.
Maitri Trust UK, Nepal Library Foundation, India Development and Relief Fund (IDRF), and Rotary Club of Kathmandu Mid-Town have been OLE Nepal’s major partners and supporters in E-Pustakalaya development.
At places where internet access is unavailable, unreliable and expensive, offline E-Pustakalaya provides an offline source of educational resources. If schools already have a computer network, they can add E-Pustakalaya installed server and the network will be ready with E-Pustakalaya. We can provide relevant information on low-cost, low-power and reliable machine for the server. If schools don’t have school computer network, we can also help install the network. The network equipment include Router/Switch, cable and server. We can also provide training and support as per requirement.
