Internet Connection in Doti
As reported in previous newsletters, the OLPC program was launched in three schools in the remote district of Doti as a joint effort by OLE Nepal and UN World Food Programme in April 2011. Just like in neighboring Dadeldhura district, these schools are bene#ciaries of Food for Education on (FFE) program launched by WFP in partnership with the Government of Nepal to address the acute food scarcity in these remote locations.
The third full year of the project (2011) has been very fruitful in terms of expanding the number of interactive modules for children and broadening our contact list. Through partnerships with both The British Council and e-Learning for Kids, we have managed to increase our flash-based interactive learning modules available for our users.
