Women's Computer Literacy Program
Partners: Nepal Library Foundation
Computers offer accessibility to information, knowledge, and tools to improve one’s education, job prospects, earning potential, and well-being. However, in Nepal, women have less access and lower computer literacy rates than their male counterparts. One leading reason for this is that many women cannot afford to own a personal computer. For organisations such as the Nepal Library Foundation, to buy or rent computers would use a significant portion of their budget. BGC has a continuous stream of laptops that become outdated with time for our technical purposes. To aid the Nepal Library Foundation’s mission, to increase women’s computer-literacy, and also to extend the life-span of BGC’s technical infrastructure, BGC has donated laptops to the foundation. By providing laptops, we hope that more women in Nepal are able to increase their opportunities and well-being.
