With Founder Of Sikshya Nepal Prem Bahadur Bohara

In this talk program, he talked about how did Shiksha Nepal come into existence and about Shiksha Nepal and the work it has been doing. He shared his story with all the students of second semester. It was an inspiring story which we got to hear there. He had never read a story book until he came to Kathmandu. As he was from Dolpa, he had never seen a library. After visiting American library, he decided to collect such books and distribute to the school he had studied. Then he got request to bring such books from others schools which were near his school. This was how Shiksha Nepal came into existence.

Recently, he is leading a campaign at Shiksha Nepal, ‘a book for every child’ which has a goal to put 1,00,000 children book (children stories with illustrations) in hands of 1,00,000 children in Nepal and ultimately forming small children’s libraries in different schools across Nepal. It has been collecting funds for its campaign by running many mass programs like selling T-shirts, mo:mos and so on.
