KANCHANPUR, JAN 17 – For Balram Panta of Sisaiya, Suda-4 in the district, chatting with his friends through social networking sites has become his favourite pastime.

Visually impaired at birth, Panta had become able to stay connected with his family and friends and work through a computer from home after participating in a basic computer training programme conducted three months ago at the initiation of District Development Committee at Bhuwaneshwari Higher Secondary School in Suda. A total of 14 visually impaired individuals, including 13 from the district and one from Dadeldhura, had participated in the programme conducted since mid-June.
“We did not know that even we could use computers with ease,” said Panta, a third year student studying a Bachelors in Education (B Ed) at Siddhanath Multiple Campus (SMC).
One Damari Bhatta of Dadeldhura has already managed to secure a job after participating in the training programme while the remaining are working on improving their computer skills.
