Empowering Education: Engineers Without Borders-Nepal's Commitment to Innovation and Learning

At Engineers Without Borders-Nepal (EWB-Nepal), we believe education is the cornerstone of sustainable development and innovation. As a committed NGO working at the forefront of societal transformation, one of our primary focuses is on enhancing educational outcomes through innovative approaches and technological integration. We are dedicated to nurturing the minds of tomorrow’s leaders, thinkers, and problem-solvers by establishing foundational programs that bridge the gap between theoretical learning and practical application.

Central to our educational initiative is the establishment of iLabs in schools across the nation. These Innovation Labs (iLabs) are creative, safe spaces where students can freely explore, experiment, and express their innovative ideas. Equipped with the latest tools and technology, these labs serve as incubators for young minds to delve into the realms of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM). The iLabs are more than just physical spaces; they are breeding grounds for creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.

Complementing our iLabs is our flagship Student Accelerator Programme. This program is specifically designed to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset among students, guiding them from ideation to execution. Over the course of five days, students engage in a comprehensive curriculum that covers the fundamentals of design thinking and entrepreneurship. They are not only taught to think like innovators but are also given the tools and support to become one. Through this program, we aim to empower students with the skills, confidence, and resilience needed to turn their dreams into reality.

Our commitment to education extends beyond students to include teachers and principals. We recognize that for a culture of innovation to thrive, it must be nurtured at all levels of the educational ecosystem. To this end, we provide specialized training for educators, equipping them with the knowledge and tools to foster a continuous learning and innovation environment within their schools. This holistic approach ensures that the impact of our programs is sustainable and far-reaching.

At Engineers Without Borders-Nepal, we are driven by a vision of a world where education is a dynamic, interactive, and lifelong journey. We are committed to making this vision a reality by supporting schools, empowering students, and training educators. Together, we are laying the foundation for a brighter, more innovative future for Nepal.
