With the efforts of KOICA ICT related volunteer Heyonsu Park, a new computer lab has been set up at Shramik Shanti Secondary School located at Chyasal of Lalitpur district.
The digitization project that will help to improve students’ technical knowledge was completed with the fund of US $20,179 from KOICA and US $1300 from the school assistance.
KOICA has been collaborating with the Shramik Shanti Secondary School since 2021 A.D. through its Green School Project and Korea Overseas Volunteer Program.
Country Director of KOICA Nepal Office Mooheon Kong said that this project will promote a dynamic and interactive learning environment by providing students with the tools and skills necessary for success in the digital era.
Hoping for future collaborations with other government schools under Lalitpur Municipality, spokesperson for Lalitpur Municipality and the chairperson of the school Raju Maharjan expressed gratitude to KOICA for its continued support.
KOV Hyeonsu Park shared his idea saying the establishment of a new computer lab would significantly enhance the school’s ability to foster a competitive advantage by advancing students’ digital literacy and computer skills.
