KATHMANDU, March 29: Fusemachines and Daayitwa have announced the execution of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that stems from the common vision of the two organizations to strengthen youth-government collaboration and promote evidence-based policymaking in Nepal. As part of the agreement, Fusemachines, a long-term funding partner for Daayitwa Nepal Public Policy Fellowship, will sponsor one Daayitwa Fellow for the 2022 cycle. 

“As a company that values the power of data and insights, we applaud Daayitwa’s efforts to advance evidence-based decisions and policies,” a statement issued by the company quotes Parag Shrestha, Managing Director, South Asia at Fusemachines,  as saying. “We are excited to further our commitment toward an organization that empowers today’s youth with opportunities to change tomorrow’s outlook and creates the promise of better socio-economic opportunities.”

Daayitwa has mobilized 11 cohorts of 141 fellows (Nepali youth from 30 countries) to collaborate with 51 governmental organizations (federal, provincial and local) and 24 parliamentarians to conduct policy research since 2013. The fellows are selected through a rigorous global call for applications and conduct 3 to 6 months policy research on various topics finalized as per the government needs across 5 themes: access to investment, youth employment, women’s economic empowerment, value chain and governance reform.
