Sangam Community Library ‘Women Computer Literacy’ Project

2014-2015 Project #321 – Nepali women living in the village of Sangam in Udayapur District, eastern Nepal, are poor and their children go hungry.  They have never had a chance to find work. 

But thanks to a pilot computer course at their local library, 15 women are now computer literate and 3 already have good jobs. Who knew one could train to be an insurance agent, a mushroom farmer or a tailor via the internet!

TRAS collaborated with the Nepal Library Foundation in Kathmandu to purchase 11 computers and enlarge this program to train many more women.

Cost of one computer? $500                      Cost of independence for one family? Priceless!
