Project Proposal of Computer Center at Chitwan District from Volnepal
1. Name of Project: Computer Center for public school and for community people
2. Project Site: Janakalyan Secondary School , Kalyanpur, Madi , Chitwan
Madi is situated south west part of Chitwan district which is 45 kilometers far from the district head quarter. It is surrounded by the part of Chitwan National Park and northern border of India. It seems like separate district. There are four VDCs in Madi. The population of Madi is more than 70,000.00 .There are no good health, electricity; communication facility, good transportation facility, no black topped road and so many other developmental infrastructures. Literacy rate is poor and the literate people are so called upper classes. The dwellings/settlement is dominated by the socially excluded and economically poor indigenous group (Chaudhary/tharu) as well as the dalit and other janajati. There is land dominated by unproductivity. No well managed schools with computers in Madi. Government has not turned its eyes for development of Madi. Rewa River is the burden of Madi. Because of not being the bridge over Rewa River, people of Madi have to face problems in rainy season and in other times. There are more than 9 streams over which bridges have not been constructed yet. Students have to go to Bharatpur, the district headquarter, to learn computer education as well as better education of school level and also of campus level.

Short information about volnepal
VNNG is a newly developed association designed to enhance educational opportunities in an impoverished area in Nepal.
Become a leading innovator of effective inclusion of poor and marginalized children into high quality private education institutions. Effectively create an integrated learning community wherein students, teachers, parents, social development and community leaders actively work together to enhance the learning process for school students and the overall community. Promote a sense of social responsibility and create avenues for effective community solutions to issues in education.
To promote excellence in education as well as an experiential approach to learning and service to others. In addition, to provide educational opportunities to children and young people who currently have none.
“EDUCATION FOR ALL” this is the slogan of 21st Century. As Education being the key for development of any nation, we can say: one of the fundamental requirements for a nation to be a developed one is “Educated People”. Nepal, being a developing country has realized that for development Education is the most important thing. The educated group or the Intellectuals of Nepal are dedicated to provide Education to the Nepalese people. Government organizations, non-government organizations and civic society, are working side by side to develop an educated man power for the nation.
As Nepal is going through a situation of financial crisis, substantial funding by the government on Educational programs is not currently reliable. Though, Nepal believes in Education for all but due to the political instability and various other reasons like Maoist insurgency, the educational programs have not yet reached the people below the poverty line. The civic society of Nepal and other non-governmental organizations are currently working on their own in providing education to the poorer people. Nabin School is one of the organizations that adheres to the motto that education is the building block of a Nation, and the light of education should reach those people.
The success of any group or nation depends on both the success of its individuals as well as the ability of those individuals to cooperate for the common good. We are inspired by John Nash’s Nobel prize winning proof of mutual gain-- a group of individuals competing solely for personal gain suffer a net loss, whereas a group of individuals who compete for personal gain through cooperation enjoy a net gain.
Population to Be Served
We want to reach: The new computer center wants to reach to those students who do not have access to information technology at all, such as poor Tamangs, Damains, Kamis, in the area. We also target to reach to those families who cannot afford to send their children to good schools.
• Socially backward and economically backward by providing quality education
