Pahilo Kadam is a mental health assistance program initiative of Krinjal that works in creating a space for mental health conversation and assists people seeking mental health-related help. By now we have released 10 different episodes of Ask Counsellor Anonymously (ACA), where certified counselors address various questions asked by people (anonymously). Our sessions address questions in general, which is why we have also been connecting these individuals, if interested, with professional counselors for further one-on-one sessions.
If you wish to ask a counselor anonymously or know more about different projects under Pahilo Kadam, please visit https://pahilokadam.com/ for further information.
The first phase of Techie Nepal, an initiative of Krinjal Foundation with Media Vision Nepal, in support of the US Embassy Nepal has been completed at Bethanchowk Rural Municipality. Techie Nepal is a STEM skill generation program for students of class 9-12 from rural areas, which provides technical skills like the use of IoT and Python programming.
For the first phase, a total of 30 students participated from 4 different schools, where the students were given a creative introduction to the process of algorithm development. They were further made familiar with the basic concepts and execution of Python programming. The Mayor of Bethanchowk Rural Municipality, Mr. Prem Bahadur Timilsina (Gopal) also graced the program with his presence during the closing ceremony of this two-day event.
Shikshya Dikshya is an education assistance program initiative of Krinjal that provides financial assistance to needy students. We have provided 51 different scholarships to students from various schools in and around Kathmandu valley by now. Ranging from KG to class 10, the heartwarming experience with these children is what pushes us to further reach out 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.
