Yours Humanly has opened the doors to its first stand-alone computer center and library, located in Lalitpur, Nepal. Funded by Behring Global Education Foundation, the Yours Humanly Nepal Computer Center & Library will serve thousands of underserved children from surrounding communities, today and for years to come. The launch of the educational center is of great significance to children, families, and community members, who will now have access to computer classes and library membership at no cost to themselves.
Free access to quality books, technologies, and computer science instruction will open new worlds to the students, who have gone without during their educational journeys. Now, with a variety of picture and chapter books, in both Nepali and English, and state-of-the-art computers and technologies at their fingertips, better, brighter futures await these precious children. This project was made possible through our Bridging Gaps initiative, which serves to bridge the gaps between need and available resources.
The center’s festive and well-attended ribbon cutting was held on April 21, with the thrill of holding the big scissors and making the official cut of the ribbon going to Ms. Manjali Shakya Bajracharya, Deputy Mayor, Lalitpur Metropolitan City. In attendance were members of the community; school principals, staff, and students; ward chair and officers; press, media, and influencers; and Yours Humanly Nepal board members, friends, and volunteers.
We are deeply grateful to the Behring Global Educational Foundation for its generous and profound support, and to Yours Humanly Nepal team members for the amazing work they’re doing on behalf of children in need.
