Gorkha E-Learning

The Gorkha E-Learning Collaborative began in August of 2020, as the COVID related closures of schools in Nepal seemed to be unending, and little support for distance learning was coming from government sources. It was evident that private schools were successfully conducting distance education in many parts of Nepal, but teachers in Gorkha had little direction as to how to start such a novel and complex undertaking, especially in government schools that serve marginalized communities. This need in the community for teacher development in Distance Learning technology and pedagogy transformed into a Community of Inquiry for teachers in Gorkha to learn and share ideas about distance learning and the response to the COVID crisis.


The Gorkha Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, grassroots organization whose purpose is to support initiatives that reduce poverty and inequality by making sustainable improvements to the living conditions of the poor and marginalized in the Gorkha region of Nepal.
