Working hand in hand with the Government
A joint agreement signed between Ministry of Education and OLE Nepal

The Department of Education (DOE) has been our key partner since the initial days of our establishment, and the two institutions have collaborated to carry out pioneering work in the area of ICT in education in Nepal. The innovative projects implemented by OLE Nepal and DoE have undoubtedly helped to raise the quality of education and to reduce the disparity in access to quality education in the country. In the process, we have also engaged and involved line agencies such as the National Centre for Educational Development (NCED) for teacher training program development and delivery, the Curriculum Development Centre (CDC) in the design and development of digital learning materials, and various District Education Offices in the implementation, monitoring and support of programs in schools.

The two year joint agreement that OLE Nepal signed with DoE, CDC, and NCED in November 2014 is a further testament to the strong partnership that the organization has cultivated with the governmental bodies. This first-of-its-kind joint agreement between an NGO and three agencies within the Ministry of Education is an endorsement of OLE Nepal’s innovative and effective programs in promoting quality education in Nepal.

kiitos paljon! Embassy of Finland

The Embassy of Finland in Kathmandu has extended further support to OLE Nepal’s projects through its Fund for Local Cooperation (FLC) program. While the current FLC funding has been supporting laptop projects in Banke, Baglung and Solukhumbu districts, along with the development of learning content for grades seven and eight, and the use of ICT to promote mother tongue education in Chepang community, the new support will help expand the laptop project in Bajhang district in 2015. We are excited to have yet another major partner joining a growing number of individuals, groups and institutions in supporting our initiatives to reform education in the remote far-western region.
