We’re very excited to bring you updates on what is in the works and what is being completed in Nepal with the help of Altruistic Odyssey and supporters like you.
2019: Year in Reflection
2019 was a very significant year for Altruistic Odyssey, with many milestones being achieved. After four years of varied altruistic work in Nepal, we finally found our market niche; last year culminated in a trip to the Computer Learning Environment Center in Sotang to see how our students and teachers were faring using the pedagogic approach we’d introduced. After seeing how the approach had evolved in the real world, some adjustments were made, and the model is stronger than ever before.
2020 will allow us to prepare our second Computer Learning Environment Center with Kathmandu University this spring. More updates to come. Stay tuned!
Our vision is to bridge the increasing technological gaps that reinforce economic division in developing economies, with a geographic focus in the remote regions of Nepal. Our plan is to deliver 100 CLECs across those remote areas over the next 10 years. With your support, we are proud of the work done so far, and I’m immensely excited to see the new heights we’ll achieve in 2020!
We love our Supporters! Meet David Bernard.
David Bernard is a champion of Altruistic Odyssey and a physical education educator based in Doha, Qatar. As a constant supporter of our communication team and a marathon runner, he took his family to hike to the Amadablam base camp this week at 16,000 feet, with stunning views of the Everest and Lotse peaks of the Himalayan Mountains. Along the way, they stopped at the Deboche nunnery that AO helped rebuild in 2016, recreating the kitchen and dining room for the 10 Nepali and Tibetan nuns who live there.
Fall Fundraising Dinner: SUCCESS!
Thanks to all of our supporters who came out to our fundraising dinner last September. Together we raised more than $7000 in revenues which fully funded the Sotang Public Campus computer lab. Now the local students can access the internet and basic programs like Word and Excel. This learning environment will help them grow to their full potential by putting valuable information at their fingertips in a way that was previously never possible. It will help prepare these highly capable but under-resourced people for future job opportunities and increase their quality of life.
