'Techspedition' Nepal 2024: help us deliver much needed educational IT and other resources to one of the world's remotest schools

The Himalayan village of Kagkot lies three days trek from the closest significant urban district.

At the heart of this secluded community in the western tip of Nepal, its school desperately needs technology training for its students, plus funding for internet connectivity to allow its students access to online learning platforms.

Additionally, the school needs windows to protect kids from the elements and its solar power generation system requires maintenance.

ITHQ are rising to the challenge (literally) of giving the village what they need. We are sending a professional IT trainer, loaded with your generous donations to provide the resources the school so desperately needs.

It is a delivery that must be done on foot over three days in order to reach Kagkot 3,400m high on the slopes of mount Putha Hiunchuli.

This trip is vital for Kagkot and we need your help to make it happen

We are asking you to help us raise £5,000 to deliver IT training to Tenzing Norgay School.

Following the devastating 2015 earthquake, Nepal deployed several learning platforms across the nation to ensure school kids could continue their education if such a disaster occurred again.

It's a great initiative - but only works if the schools are able to access these platforms. This requires a reliable internet connection and power.

ITHQ is committed to helping make sure the children of Kagkot never lose touch with the world again.

Craig Wiltshire: postie with the mostie

ITHQ’s Techspedition to Nepal will take place in September 2024.

Craig Wiltshire, CEO of Struto and long-term ITHQ associate is also a professional IT trainer. He will fly to Kathmandu then Nepalgunj and onto Juphal. From there it is a three-day trek, camping out under the stars, as he climbs to Kagkot.

Craig's Top priority is to secure the internet link and train the kids how to access the learning platforms safely. We also hope to raise enough funds to ensure the power supply receives critical maintenance and even get windows fitted at the school.

Please help us in our quest to help this incredible school.
