Explain your project in details:

FountEd is a non-profit organization working to spread digital literacy all over Nepal, focusing on underprivileged students of Nepal who are deprived of quality education and computer skills. With the main objectives of imparting knowledge of computer science and technology to all students, promoting practicality in education, FountEd was founded. We only not limit ourselves to technology, as the name of our organization, "fount," was termed after the fountain which helps in many sectors; likewise, we also tend to spread knowledge of every field because technology is in every area; all fields require you to know little knowledge of Computer Science. In other words, we try to connect every field with technology and provide students with practical knowledge of Computer Science. We have conducted 26 physical programs on the topic of "Computer Science & Digital Literacy," reaching more than 8000 students. We share computer science knowledge and teach students about technology's rights and safety. We have conducted several virtual seminars on Web Development, Cybersecurity, and Career in technology with 900 total participants across 45 districts. Since knowledge of technology is everyone's right, we collaborated with schools in different parts of Nepal and conducted seminars there. Also, we collaborated with some other non-profit organizations and private companies to conduct workshops and donation programs of educational materials in Orphanages' Homes. While conducting these physical sessions, we found that the children in rural areas could not access books and tech gadgets. While addressing this issue, our team came up with a new vision in which we partner with Creating Oppurtunites, one of the top organizations with several branches in many other countries, and initiated Project child development to build libraries. The small steps FountEd is climbing now are hones for the tall mountains in the future.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Quality education has always been a strong foundation for our effort, which has grown from the concept of two people to a family of hundreds today. Our organization's only goal is to develop young people's skills, to educate underprivileged children, to build a solid foundation where the future game-changers in the IT industry can look for employment, and to improve digital education in our nation. Saying this, we firmly declare that the FountED family passionately supports high-quality education, and each member of our team works assiduously to achieve these goals. In a time when the rest of the world is advancing in technology more quickly than ever before, we think that even less fortunate Nepalese students should have access to a platform where they can receive a quality education and technical training, as well as be projected toward the future that technology holds. To ensure that everyone has access to all levels of information, the modules of our courses are created to accommodate students of different academic backgrounds. Additionally, having a rudimentary understanding of technology would help the young people become quick thinkers and explorers. After mastering the fundamentals, kids can even delve into the online world to research any subject they like. Additionally, people can gradually develop with us and produce their own original ideas and discoveries in the future. All of these will benefit society by providing high-quality education. It will have a long-lasting effect on those kids' future. And the chain will keep going because we have already reached more than 8,000 pupils in such a short period of time, and it will keep going in the future.

Sustainability and future plans

FountEd is a non-profit organization that selflessly provides free education and skills training related to technology. Our primary funding sources are donations from different people who trust in our project, and some people themself donate to our organization just by loving our work. We plan to conduct different physical or virtual seminars on various technology-related topics in the future. We are already at the final stage of running a hackathon, the first hackathon in far-western Nepal, at Doti, Nepal, where people have skills. Still, they don't have the platforms to showcase them. Besides hackathons and seminars, we plan to conduct boot camps related to app development, web development, blockchains, cybersecurity, robotics, data science and machine learning, and many more. Also, we are planning to widen our wings by setting up a teaching camp with a duration of about a month in different parts of Nepal, where we will be teaching students about various subjects and will guide them to use technology to enhance their education. Our Project Children Development is aiming to build libraries for different child care, orphanages, and rehabilitation center in every province. We operate on a decentralized principle i.e every member (200) of FountEd form a team of local members and work in their respective communities. They organize different programs and workshops on behalf of FountEd. This has helped reduce our travel costs and establish AuraEd as a self-funded entity to date. In the coming days, as our projects get larger, we plan to seek grants from national and international organizations. Furthermore, organize fundraisers on social media and crowdfunding websites. We aim to impact over 30000 students and reach all 77 districts of Nepal by 2023. FountEd will be actively working to promote education and increase digital literacy in Nepal.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

I am Mahesh Raj Pandit, a 17 years old boy who was born in Bajura, an underdeveloped district of Nepal, and spent about 8 years studying in a school in Doti. Both districts are in far-western Nepal, which is considered an underdeveloped state of Nepal, which is undoubtedly true. In Bajura, few students get the chance to study at a school, whereas I was lucky enough to move to Doti with my parents, where I studied at a private school. However, I was not getting the opportunities that I was expecting. Later, I moved to Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, where I explored many fields, enhanced my skills and knowledge, and completed high school here. After all this, I started working on my dream project to teach others what I have learned throughout this journey. Whenever I think of my situation in the past, it encourages me to work for every student who is not getting the opportunities and skills guidance they need. Those innocent faces deprived of education motivates me to work beyond my limits and provide them with education. My mastery of leadership, computer science, communication, and learning new things helped me teach others and lead the team. Meanwhile, these qualities helped me to start my own organization FountEd to spread digital literacy and NEER(Nepal E-Education Riser) to develop software to promote e-education in Nepal, . Also I get recognition like the Commitment Award from the World Book of Records- London, Student of the year 2019 (SooJung English Boarding School), Best Contributing Student (Bridgewater International Secondary School) for teaching junior classes and running an outreach program through science and tech club and so on. As my journey to make my dream true has started, it will never stop to educate others.

Hello everyone my name is Brenda Clark from Germany. I am on this platform to share my testimony on how Dr Gbogbo helped me shrink my fibroid naturally and gave me some herbal medicines which I use to cure my 6 years of infertility. I have been trying to get pregnant for the past 6 years before I finally met Dr Gbogbo. I had tried several medicines provided by my doctor which all didn't work out and couldn't shrink or get me pregnant. At first when my colleague introduced Dr Gbogbo to me I had a skeptical opinion about African herbal medicines but I had no option than to give it a trial which I did and I got a possible result at the end. I only use it for 2 weeks as directed by Dr Gbogbo. I am a proud mother of twins, This is to every woman suffering from fibroids, pcos and infertility or any health challenge that you're yet to find a solution to. Please meet Dr Gbogbo, He has one of the best herbal medicines from Africa. Thank you all for reading.
