Project Description

Region: South-East Asia

Country: Nepal

Location: Parbat

Total Budget: $60,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy



The world today is divided between the 'haves' and 'have-nots', not only by wealth but by a growing number of separations, including the access to knowledge and information which is provided through information technology -known as the digital divide. The governmental schools are unable to provide computer facilities at their schools, as such the gap between students studying in private schools and governmental schools are widening. The condition is more acute in villages, where private computer training facilities are also not available and students have not even seen a computer.

Rotary club of Branchburg in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Parbat (RCP) has been working in the area to provide scholarships and programs. This project will help to establish computer labs, E-library learning centers so that the students would have,at least,some basic concept of a computer.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
