dUBE KOL IT PROJECT
After a devastating earthquake in 2015, Nepal has lost a large number of human lives and an unimaginable amount of properties, and it left so many people homeless that they had to live their lives under shelters in the hopes of government helping them, but unfortunately that dream has been only their imagination. A small group of people from Dube Kol and surrounding areas came up with idea of generating some money to help the kids go back to school so they can start learning; allowing them access to the internet to enhance their educations, and in turn aid their journey to future success. This project was our pilot project, we were not quite sure where to start from, but fortunately James (Billy) Heyman, a UK based citizen, became the main donor and funding coordinator to start planning Dube Kol IT Project.
We raised over £8,000.00 through various means i.e. individual donors, societies and online donation. We provided 10 desk top computers, full furniture, a solar power system, means of satellite communication for internet and full building refurbishments.
The following facilities have been provided in order to run this project smoothly:
- Refurbishment of building
