Addressing the Digital Divide in Nepal

In summer 2020, Rohil Kulkarni (SFS’21) and Tierra Hatfield (G’22) conducted virtual research at St. Xavier’s College in Kathmandu, Nepal, through the Education and Social Justice Fellowship, a joint project of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. The pair examined the educational impact of COVID-19 on the Partnership in Education (PiE) program at the college. Their research observations focus on socioeconomic hardships, especially the lack of access to online connectivity, and how the PiE program sought to address the digital divide.
