Suraj Pant, Economics, Class of 2011

In the summer of 2011, Pant established a computer lab at JanaKalyan Madhyamik Vidyalaya, a high school founded in part by his grandfather and the only high school in Hungi, a remote village in Western Nepal. The lab is furnished with ten computers and Internet facilities for the students and teachers of the school. Outside of school hours, the lab generates income to cover maintenance costs and serves the wider community by offering computer literacy courses and by renting time for Internet usage. The lab hopes to equip students with computing skills, thus expanding and improving their access to learning resources and information.
