Support Our Teachers and Students in Nepal

Claude Roussel's Campaign for Education in Nepal

Strengthening Communities through Education



Students from the remote and mountainous Manang District, Nepal. 


Dear Friends, Family & Colleagues,


First I’d like to thank you for supporting my past campaigns for Digital Bridges 4 Nepal. Your support has made a big difference. 


Because of your support, we were able to install a new Collaborative Learning Environment Center in a underserved high school in Biratnagar, Nepal’s second largest city as well as design a brand new training course for teachers in collaboration with our partner, Kathmandu University School of Education, the leading teacher training institution in Nepal. 


During this holiday season, I am focusing my fundraising efforts on ensuring all the teachers at our 6 (soon to be 7!) schools in Nepal. We want to ensure that every teacher can participate in our new training course. The course does more than familiarize teachers with the digital technologies in the CLEC, it gives them practical instruction in collaborative learning, student-centered classroom facilitation, and project-based problem solving.

Many of the teachers we work with in rural and remote areas of Nepal grew up in these regions, defied odds to get a university degree, and chose to give back to their communities as teachers. It is critical to support these remarkable teachers' personal and professional growth alongside the students they serve. That is how we sustainably strengthen communities through education.


By supporting Digital Bridges right now, you will ensure that these dedicated teachers have the skills and confidence to fully support their students, and continue their own journey as changemakers in their own communities. 


My goal for this campaign is $10,000, which would allow just about 2 dozen teachers to attend the combined virtual and in-person trainings at Kathmandu University. 


I would love your support in achieving this goal. Each dollar you give helps unlock the potential of both young students and their teachers in underserved communities in Nepal. 


Please consider making a one time donation or becoming a monthly supporter for our cause (scroll down to see the donation form below).


Together we can help give students and teachers the one thing in this world that no one can never take away from them, an education.

With Gratitude,


Claude Roussel

Together we can empower Nepalese teachers and students  with the skills and knowledge they need to contribute to the growth and prosperity of their own communities and of all of Nepal.
