The long-term goal of Nepal Wireless is to become one of the biggest rural Internet Service Providers in Nepal. The objective is not to bring only the Internet and computers in the rural areas but to maximize the benefits of wireless and information technology for the rural population in remote areas by introducing different useful applications. Using the wireless technology, we hope to make the life of rural people bit easier and more enjoyable. Specifically, the project aims to achieve the following goals, divided into six main goal areas:
To increase educational opportunities in the rural communities by creating tele-teaching and tele- training program and by making to e-learning materials accessible to students, teachers and villagers through e-libraries created by different organizations.
To connect the rural health clinics and health workers to the city hospitals in order to provide quality medical assistances through telemedicine program and make the availability of healthcare in the rural communities by virtually bringing medical doctors.
To increase communication facilities in the rural areas by providing telephone services through Internet phone system (VoIP), to make Internet available for the use of email, and to help villagers to discuss by using Nepali language bulletin boards for community discussion.
• Local e-commerce: To help villagers to buy and sell their products in the local market through local intranet.
• Job creation:
To generate jobs in the rural areas for younger generation through ICT related services such as communication centers, VoIP phone services, remittance services, and virtual ATM machine.
• Weather and climate change monitoring:
To collect data for the researchers of climate change monitoring projects and provide real time weather information of the air route between Jomsom and Pokhara for airlines.
The project already has started to provide some benefits mentioned above to the villagers, such as communication, educational, and telemedicine facilities to the rural people even if it is on small scale as well as air route information to the airport.
