There are more than three dozens of of institution in the country related to ICT and Engineering in the country only from which more than four thousand students graduate each year. However there is lack of available industries that can accommodate these graduates. Also the available companies demands is insufficient for the fresh graduate. In addition to that there are large number Engineers and technical resource graduating each year from the foreign countries. Hence the competition is tough. The then two executive member Sudeep Khan And Shailendra Jha under their coordination has initiated the research.
Below is the ppt presentation of the research, they presented the research in different conferences and talk programs.

The project is modified version of “Helping Hand Program” coordinated by ITS-Nepal in the past. Nepal has diversified geography from sea-level to the highest mountain of which we are proud. But unfortunately economic imbalance in the country result digital divide that ITS-Nepal consider as a big challenge and feels necessary to take further steps to minimize the gap of E-literacy. Hence E-Education project has been initiated under the leadership of Shailendra Jha. The pilot project will be launched in January 2013.
