KATHMANDU, Nov 19: 'Hello Student Program' is going to be launched in Province 1. The Provincial Ministry of Social Development has been making preparations to launch the program in order to teach the students by telephone as the situation is not conducive for in-person learning at schools.
The program is to be launched with an objective of giving continuity to teaching learning activities targeting the students who are not able to join online classes as well as students of the coronavirus-hit areas.
Director at the Provincial Education Directorate, Rajendra Budhathoki, said that preparations have been made to launch the programme in 10 local units of six districts in the first phase.
Budhathoki added that an agreement has already been reached to launch the programme at Pakhribas Municipality and Sangurigadhi Rural Municipality of Dhankuta, Chhathar Rural Municipality of Tehrathum, Barju and Gadhi rural municipalities of Sunsari, Kachankabal and Kamal rural municipalities of Jhapa and Karabari Rural Municipality of Morang.
The agreement is yet to be signed with Miklajung Rural Municipality of Morang and Chuli Chuli Rural Municipality of Ilam.
He shared that the students would be taught through a closed user group SIM card of Nepal Telecom. The SIM card could be used only by students and teachers and Rs 129 would be enough for one month.
The SIM card will be provided to students free of cost and mobile balance will be provided to the students and teachers for three months.
