Yei Local is the largest platform for kids and adults to share and to acquire relevant knowledge. “The online platform was started as a means to provide Mathematics class for kids, then we started providing music and language classes, after which we moved on to providing courses for adults,” Sweta Pandey shared with us.
Furthermore,by being more than just being an academic platform, the online platform is blurring geographical, social and curriculum- enforced boundaries on learning. It is an exciting, holistic place for kids as well as adults to learn about : Science, Make-up and Magic and other in-demand professional courses.
For instance, Sweta shares that Yei Local is going to launch the “Biggest online carnival” for kids starting from 27th August. “In this carnival, kids aged 7-14 will have a chance to learn magic tricks from International Magicians, learn drama and dialogue delivery from actor – Abhishek Subedi, as well as cool science experiments!”
Moreover, adult courses offered by Yei Local include professional courses which include lessons on Excel, Mobile Repair, C++ , and Java . Similarly, there are several other free and paid courses for adults including lessons on : fitness, make-up, language and music.
Apart from being an innovative platform that is promoting logical, creative and skill- based education, the company recognises not every kid in Nepal can access quality education in Nepal due social immobility. Hence, the socially responsible start-up is teaching underprivileged kids from Tanhaun for free of cost.
