Learning technology provides entry into global job markets giving an individual the opportunity to fly with new wings, but what's even more is that it has the power to shape entire economies.

Tech Centered Economic Development

Imagine what Nepal would look like in five years, if programming became a core part of Nepal's national curriculum. People in villages would have access to global job markets without having to leave their families to earn a little money in the desert. With such low start-up costs, tech entrepreneurism would explode aiding in the sustainable economic development of the country. Innovation would accelerate and social challenges would be solved. Just look at the rise of Bangalore, India. Practically overnight the city became the Silicon Valley of India. Education is where to start.

Hacker Pedagogy

We believe that the best educational curriculum are built around solving real world challenges. Sure wrote memorization is great if you want to create human hard drives, but we focus on empowering our students to think creatively, share their ideas openly, be inquisitive, and have the self-confidence and skills necessary to tackle any challenge.

Hacker Ethics For Education

Open Access

We believe that knowledge and information should be freely shared and have open access regardless of your location, financial abilities, race, sex, or gender.  

Skepticism

We believe that a healthy dose of skepticism aimed at the knowledge we are are consuming not only creates an open-learning environment, but that it's a necessary skill to apply to news, social media, and other people's opinions. Questioning authority is not only healthy it makes you smarter. 

Hands On Imperative

We love theory and books and we utilize them in our curriculum, but in the end the best programmer is going to be the one who spent the most time breaking things and fixing them. 

Self Directed

To know how to master one's own education is the most valuable skill we try to instill. With such a vast array of knowledge available on the internet we can find solutions to challenges. 

Teach Yourself

Teaching someone how to come to knowledge on their own is to show them everything at once. Teach logic and creativity and show them what excellent means to some people. 

Humanitarian Projects

Our programs are project based. We believe that technology is something that should be used to aid humanity. The projects we teach through are humanitarian and meant to have people interact with technology for a greater good. 

Each 1 Teach 1

The thing about knowledge is that is always passed from one person to another. We all have someone to thank for all the things we know. We believe that it's an ethical imperative to teach and pass on the information we have been given. 

Collaborative Learning

We know that a diverse group of students who collaborate and share the knowledge they posses not only provides a greater chance to learn more, but it also helps create a community based around sharing.

Educational Priorities

We focus on empowering universities, rural villages, businesses, NGO's, and private students with educational opportunities that bridge the digital divide in impoverished disaster zones.

Rural Programs

Rural villages in Nepal are lacking quality educators, technological infrastructure, and other educational resources critical to providing a quality learning experience. Dropout rates are extremely high, because it's more profitable to have your kids work in the fields than attend school. We hope that by teaching web development and programming we can create a financial reason for kids to continue with their education rather than dropout.

Universities

We also work with public universities by setting up educational programs, providing access to technologies like 3d printers and drones, and create educational opportunities. We also strive to bridge the gap between education and the workforce with Ignite, our incubation and accelerator program.

Businesses and NGO's

We provide free training and consultation for local NGO's and businesses who can't afford these training on their own. We do this to empower the change makers trying to make a social impact and to empower economic growth.

Individuals

Individuals without access to universities or schools are a major priority for us. We create an open environment and learning space to aid individuals in reaching new heights. We understand that college isn't right for everyone so we help individuals get a proper education to pursue their goals.
