These photos were taken at community and committee meetings in the village of Astam, Nepal, and with schools in nearby villages. Community involvement and ownership was essential to the success of the project and necessary for long term sustainability and growth. The Logged On Foundation team and friends in Nepal worked tirelessly in consulting as widely as possible to ensure participation and pave the way for more Centres to be built.

The Logged On Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that uses computers and the internet to improve the state of education in less fortunate communities and to connect them to a world of ideas, services, entrepreneurial activities, and knowledge exchange.
