Sabita and Sawal started setting up the laptops and slowly passed each one around. All the children in the room seemed very excited and happy to see the green tool placed in front of them. And that was exactly what we wanted – to see them children smile and enjoy their time amidst the fearful situation.
They sat in a group of three and started trying out different activities and lessons from E-paath. Children are unsure when their schools will resume but these sessions definitely help them spend their time in quality learning. OLE Nepal is conducting these relief efforts in different places. Following photo series show kids involved in exploring the educational tool at Kirtipur. We are available in two centers of Kirtipur; Navajyoti Primary School and Janasewa Higher Secondary School between 11 to 3.

Learning never stops.
Learning helps children forget what they experienced and motivates them to look forward to new things.
