Techie Nepal is a STEM skill generation program for students of classes 9-12 from rural areas which provide technical skills like python coding and digital designing. For the first phase, a total of 30 students participated from 4 different schools, where the students were introduced to the process of algorithm development alongside basic concepts and execution of Python programming. The second phase for this has been planned and will be launched from next month where an advanced technique of prior discussed data programming skills would be taught to students from different schools.

Given the pandemic and its complex implications on Nepali students, Krinjal provided a total of $7236 as loans to 28 students. This comprised 19 students in the US and 9 in Australia. Out of the total students who received this loan, 19 have already paid their amount back. We have always believed in creating impacts through small ways and hope that this initiative could become a force of positive impact for all the students.
We have collaborated with Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub for their “Shaping Mental Health” Support Mapping campaign. For the first phase, we have compiled a directory of mental health professionals who provide high-quality, affordable, ethical, and non-judgmental services, based on the collective wisdom of people who have visited these professionals or know someone who has. The major objective of this project was to create a crowd-sourced database of mental health professionals in Nepal to improve public access to mental health.

We have initiated new mechanisms to ensure that the Shikshya Dikshya becomes more efficient and transparent this month. We now have official MoUs with Student Ambassadors of the school, where students receive scholarships. The ambassadors are responsible for providing first-hand information about the scholarship kids and keeping us updated with follow-up reports throughout the total scholarship duration. This would allow sponsors to know the progress of their sponsored students better and keep all involved parties accountable.

This month, we provided 37 scholarships to students from Dhulabari, Jhapa, through Shikshya Dikshya. Shikshya Dikshya is an education assistance program initiative of Krinjal that offers financial assistance to needy students. The scholarship students of Jhapa ranged from classes 1 to 10 with an equal ratio of male and female. It included tuition fees, stationery, and exam fees for one academic year of the students. The heartwarming experience with these children pushes us to reach out further and bridge more students under the umbrella of Shikshya Dikshya. We are grateful to all of our sponsors, whose contribution has enabled a child to study without any financial burden on their head. You can access the receipts of the payments made through the scholarships from here.
