KUMARI INTERNET PROJECT
Kumari is a mountainous region situated roughly 4 mi from Kathmandu. The rural area consists of numerous, small villages dotted throughout the foothills and across the skyline. Following a chance encounter in 2006, Health and Ed 4 Nepal, a non-profit based out of Colorado, has aided a local sherpa in achieving his dream to provide a better life for the region he calls home. This has transpired into the construction of a medical clinic, high school, elementary school, and a new world of possibilities for Kumari natives.
Our mission is to bring internet service to the clinic and neighboring villages to improve the efficiency of care and access to it. In addition, this new network will provide students and teachers with access to a new avenue for education and enhance their overall learning experience.
We are currently aiming to submit for grants for project funding in early 2018 and hope to provide internet to the region later in the year.
