The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal today announced the
launch of the One Laptop per Child(OLPC) pilot project in Dadeldhura district in partnership with Open Learning Exchange Nepal(OLE Nepal)and Nepal Government's Department of Education. This initiative will provide laptop computers to 180 school children and teachers in grades two and three in
three of the government schools in Far Western Nepal where WFP also provides food assistance. With the aim of improving education quality and access, the program will distribute laptops at three public schools in Dadeldhura – Shree Samaijee Primary School in Samaijee VDC, Shree Janta Primary School in Kailpalmandu VDC, and Shree Janajyoti Primary School in Haamtad VDC. The
laptops will contain curriculum-based interactive education materials in English, mathematics and Nepali that are developed by OLE Nepal. Thirteen teachers from the three schools have already been through a seven day residential training conducted in Dadeldhura by trainers from OLE Nepal and
National Centre for Educational Development(NCED). “WFP’s school feeding programme plays a critical role in increasing school attendance,” said WFP
Country Representative, Richard Ragan. “Making laptop computers available will improve the quality of education that students receive while they are in school.”
