Travel with GRID Alternatives on a life-changing adventure to Nepal in 2024 to learn about Nepali history and culture while installing solar at the Miteri Peace Learning Center located in Jumla, Nepal. The Miteri Peace Learning Center was built by nonprofit Action Works Nepal and is a community learning center with a library, an IT center with computers and Internet access, and a hall space for communal activities like women's club, sports club and health club meetings.
The Center is used by local students and other community members and is a place to gather and learn and provides a way for local residents to communicate with their loved ones outside Jumla since cell phone service is unreliable in the area and many residents have friends and family that live out of town and outside of Nepal. Internet access also allows residents to access updated news, information and online learning resources and books encourage reading.
Travel with GRID to install an off-grid solar system to power lights, computers, wifi routers, a printer, and other small appliances including cell phone charging. Having access to a learning center with reliable electricity helps facilitate learning, improves quality of life and contributes to a happy and just society. During your trip to Nepal, you will install solar for 3-4 days in a remote Nepali community and travel to other parts of Nepal to learn about the culture and history along with like-minded travelers.
