Department of Education distributed free laptops to all students of Class 4 in the school as a pilot project with technical assistance from One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Nepal mission. The mission is to empower the children of developing countries to learn by providing one connected laptop to every school-age child. This is the first pilot project of the OLPC project in the hilly country ridden by over a decade of internal-conflict. In South-Asia, another such pilot run is undergoing in a village near Mumbai in India.
