The first phase of Techie Nepal was completed this month at New Capital College, Chitwan, with 65 students from 10 different educational institutions. Four trainers, two males, and two females, moderated the whole session with equal shifts, keeping the COVID-19 protocol into consideration. The Head of the Department of Education at the metropolitan and the Chairman of Ratnagar Ward No. 10, Mr. Deepak Adhikari, also attended the event. The objective of the program was to ignite a spark in the school-level students of rural Nepal towards their journey of innovation in the world of computers and technology by providing them a platform to learn Python programming through creative intensive workshop training by tech professionals. Therefore, this is a step forward to educate 600 students from various rural villages of Nepal on the importance and practices of STEM education.

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.
At Krinjal Connect, we facilitate a space for professionals to network and learn. This month, we organized 3 different sessions with exemplary individuals – Mr. Bijaya Gautam, Software Architect, (Apple, Qualcomm, Intuit); Mr. Prashanna Tiwaree, Director of Product, (Mastercard); and Mr.Kalyan Baniya, Entrepreneur/Founder at Kuti Farms.
Each of these virtual sessions was interactive, informative, and reflected the individual’s journey with the participation of almost 120 people. This initiative of Krinjal works in helping fellow Nepalis get mentorship and brings together individuals from different backgrounds to learn, facilitate and grow together.
