Help Nepal Network | हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क

 नेपाल द्वन्दकालबाट गुज्रिदै गर्दा जनताहरु अन्योलमा थिए। नेपालको आर्थिक, राजनैतिक, सामाजीक उतारचढाबलाई लिएर विश्वसमुदायमा धेरैनै कौतोहलता सृजना भईरहेको थियो। त्यही समुहबीच बिदेशमा बस्ने नेपालीहरु माझ नेपाललाई हेर्ने फरक द्रिस्टिकोण भएको एक समूह बनेको थियो। आफ्नो मातृभूमी अन्योलमा परेको बेलामा दुख अनि समबेदनाको भावनाभन्दा, देशका  राजनीति, राजनितिज्ञ, बिकाशका पुर्बधरहरुको अभाब जस्ता नराम्रो पक्ष्यलाई औल्याउदै खेद गर्ने गर्दथिए।

सन् १९९९ बेलायतमा बसोबस गर्ने नेपाली, रबीन्द्र मिश्रले, हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कको, स्थापना गर्नु भयो। संस्थाको स्थापना १२ जना स्दश्यको समायोजन भएको थियो भने अरुण सिंह बस्नेत नेपालका लागी  संयोजक थिए। आजको मिती सम्म यस् संस्थाको १२ राष्ट्र (अस्ट्रेलिया, अष्ट्रीया, क्यानाडा, डेनमार्क, आयरल्याण्ड,  नेपाल,न्युजील्याण्ड, कतार, रसिया, साउदी अरेवीया, दक्षिण कोरिया, स्वीडेन, युनाईटेड किङ्गडम् र  संयुक्त राज्य अमेरीका)मा संजाल स्थापना भईसकेको छ। आफ्नो १७औ बसन्त पार गरी, यस् संस्थाले राष्ट्र निर्माणमा उल्लेखनीय योगदान पुर्याइसकेको छ ।

हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क सन १९९९मा “एक महिनामा एक डलर” कोषको स्थापना गर्ने नेपालको पहिलो अंतराष्ट्रिय संगठनिक संजाल हो। यस् संस्थाले नेपालका दुर्गम क्षेत्रमा रहेका बालबालीकाको शिक्षा तथा श्वास्थक्षेत्र उत्थानका लागि दत्त चित्त भएर लागीपरेको छ। बाह्र वटा देशमा च्याप्टरहरू रहेका यस् संस्थाले आजका दिनसम्म अनेकौ क्रियाकलाप गरेर रास्ट्रको शिक्षा तथा श्वास्थक्षेत्रमा योगदान पुर्याएको छ।
हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क नेपाली जनसमुदाय माझ "दिने" संक्रृतीको प्रबर्धन गर्ने काम गर्दछ। उद्हारणका लागी बिदेसमा रहेका हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क का सदस्यहरुले त्यहाँ बस्ने नेपाली जनताहरुलाई महिनामा एकचोटी आफ्नो आर्जनबाट थोरै रकम अनुदान दिनका लागी प्रोत्साहन गर्दछन्। नेपालमा हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कका सदस्यहरुले बरु  मासिक एक प्लेट मो:मो कम खाने गरौ  अथवा केही कप चिया कम पियौ र त्यो बचत कतै दान गरे भनेर अाफ्नो कार्यक्रम संचालन गर्दछन।

सन् २००२मा हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले १२०० पाउंडको आर्थिक सहयोग प्रदान गरी  प्युठानको सरस्वती प्राथमिक बिद्यालयको दुइवटा भवन पुनर्निर्माण गर्न सफल भएको थियो। त्यही साल दांग र डोल्पामा दुई बिध्यलयाको भवन निर्माण र पुस्तकालय सुधारमा करिब २८०० पाउंड सहयोग पुर्याओ। सन् २००३मा आवहान समूह, चाबहिलको सहकार्यमा हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले ६०० पाउन्डको सहयोग गरी काठमाडौँको कपनमा हेपाटाईटीष बी खोप सिबीर संचालन गरेको थियो। साथसाथै खोटांग जिल्लाको दिप्सुंग गबिसा मा ११४० अमेरिकी डलरको लागतमा रेनुका निम्न माध्यमिक बिद्यालयको छत मर्मत गर्न सहयोग पुर्याएको थियो। यसरीनै हरेक वर्ष यस् संस्थाले शिक्षा र स्वास्थ्यमा टेवा पुर्याउदै आएको छ।

शिक्षा र स्वास्थ्यको दिगो बिकाश गर्न सूचना प्रबिधी अंगाल्दै यस् संस्थाले “हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क एल.टि.एस्.पी ई-लाईब्ररी प्रोजेक्ट चलाउदै आएको छ। “एउटा जिल्लामा कम्तिमा पनि एउटा ई-लाईब्ररी” यस् प्रोजेक्टको मूल नारा हो ।

परम्परागत पुस्तकालयको आधुनीक रुप हो ई-लाईब्रेरी। ई-लाईब्रेरी लाई  ईलेकट्रोनिक-लाईब्रेरी पनी भनिन्छ। हजारौको संख्यामा शैक्षिक सामग्री जस्तै किताब, डिक्सनेरी, लेख, गेम्स, गीत, भिडियो जस्ता शैक्षित र मनोरंजनात्मक सामग्रीहरुलाई कम्प्युटरमा संग्रह गर्ने प्रबिधि हो ई-लाईब्रेरी।

पुल्चोक क्याम्पसका केहि बिद्यार्थीहरुले सेमेस्टर ब्रेकमा लगिने भारत भ्रमण नगई क्याम्पसका पुराना र प्रयोग नगरिएका कम्प्यूटरमा ओपन सौर्स सफ्टवएर स्थापना गरी ई-लाईब्रेरी सेटअप गरेका थिए। हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क ले त्यश अभियानलाई निरन्तरता दिदै आजको मिति सम्ममा ३५भन्दा बढी जिल्लामा ई-लाईब्रेरीको  स्थापना गरिसकेको छ। फस नेपालका स्वयम्सेबकहरुले बिगतका दिनमा ई-लाईब्रेरीको स्थापना, मर्मत, समस्याहरुको निवारण र उपयोग गर्नका लागी बिद्यालयका बिद्यार्थी र शिक्षकलाई तालीम दिने गर्दथिए। फस नेपालका स्वयम्सेबकहरुले काठमाडौँ विश्वबिद्यालय स्थित काठमाडौँ विश्वबिद्यालय ओपन सोर्स कम्युनिटीका स्वयम्सेबकहरुले ज्ञान आदान प्रदान गरेपछी अहिले ई-लाईब्रेरीको सम्पूर्ण क्रियाकलाप के.यु.ओ.एस्.सीले संयोजन गर्दछ। सन २०१४मा  हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले काठमाडौँ  विश्वबिद्यालयको कम्प्युटर साईनस् तथा ईन्जीनरिङ्ग बिभाग संग समझौता पत्र हस्ताक्ष्यर गरेको थियो। हेन नेपालका सदश्य रोशेन्द्र ध्वज खड्काले  के.यु.ओ.एस्.सी संग समन्वय गरी ई-लाईब्रेरीको कार्यक्रम संचालन गर्ने गर्दछन।

ज्ञान आदान प्रदानको सिलसिला जारी राख्न र ई-लाईब्रेरीको क्रियाकलाप द्रुतगतिमा लैजाने उदेश्यले अहिले के.यु.ओ.एस्.सीले पुल्चोक क्याम्पसका स्वयम्सेबक हरुलाई  यस अभियानमा हातेमालो गरिरहेको छ।
ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापना गर्न चाहिने पुर्बाधारहरु निम्न प्रकारका छन्:
  1. प्रथम त एउटा १० देखी १५ वटा कम्प्युटर राख्न सकिने फराकिलो कोठा चाहिन्दछ।
  2. हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले स्थापना गरेको प्रत्यक  ई-लाईब्रेरीमा
    एउटा सर्भर, एउटा स्विच, १० वटा थिन क्लायन्ट( अर्थात् सरल भासामा भन्नु पर्दा १० वटा कम्प्युटरहरु) हुन्छ।

यी सबै पुर्बधार किन्नु परेमा सरकारी विद्यालयलाई अतिनै महँगो हुन जान्छ। त्यशैले तपाईहरुले हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क मा आफ्नो बिद्यालयलाई किन ई-लाईब्रेरीको खाचो छ भन्ने कारण देखाएर एउटा प्रस्ताब आवेदन लेखी पठाउनु पर्नेछ। संस्थाले सोही  आबेदनहरु हेरी आफ्नो बर्सिक ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापनाका  लागी प्राप्त अनुदान अनुसार केहि बिद्यालय सुचित गर्द छ। सुचित बिद्यालयहरुमा के.यु.ओ.एस्.सी का स्वयंसेवकहरुले हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कको अफिस देखि ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापना गर्न चाहिने सबै सामग्री लगी ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापना गरिदिनेछन। सोही समयमा बिद्यार्थी र शिक्षक लाई तालिम पनि दिनेगर्छन।

 वायरलेस प्रविधिद्वारा देशको ग्रामिण क्षेत्रमा सूचना प्रबाह गर्ने लक्ष्य बोकेर नेपाल वायरलेस सञ्जाल परियोजनामार्फत इन्टरनेट संजाल विस्तार गर्न सफल व्यक्तित्व महावीर पुन म्याग्दी जिल्लाको नांगी गाउँमा जन्मीएका हुन् | भेडाबाख्रा गोठाले बनेर आफ्नो बाल्यकाल बिताएका पुन गाउँमा एक जिर्ण अबस्थामा रहेको पुर्भाधारको अभाब भएको सरकारी बिद्यालयमा पढदथिए।  पुनका पिता, एक रिटायार्ड ब्रिटिश गुर्खा आर्मी थिए र उनीले आफ्नो परिवारलाई देशको दक्षिण भेगमा बसाई सर्ने र छोराको शिक्षामा लगानी गर्ने निर्णय लिनाले पुनको जीवनमा ठुलो परिवर्तन ल्यायो

आफ्नो उच्च माध्यमिक सिक्षा सकाएर पुनले १२ बर्स ४ वटा बिद्यालयमा पढाउने काम गरे । सन् १९८९ मा पुनले नेब्रास्का बिश्वबिध्यालयबाट  बिज्ञान सिक्षा मा स्नात_कोत्तर हासिल गरे। स्नातक सकाएर २४ बर्स पछी आफ्नो गाउँ नांगी फर्किदा उन्ले दिगो शिक्षाको आवश्यकता महसुस गरे। जसको सुरुवात उनले हिमान्चल ऊ, मा, बी को स्थापना बाट सुरुवात गरे। कम्प्युटर सिक्षा र आय श्रोत बिद्धि लाई ध्यानमा राखी उनले आफ्नो कार्यक्रम अगाडी बढाउदै देश लाई बिकाश को ज्योतितिर अग्रसर गराउन थले।
 
सन २००१ महाबीर पुनको जिबनको स्वार्णिम वर्ष रहन गयो जब (ब्रिटिश ब्रोडकास्ट कर्पोरेसन)BBCले उनको गाउँगाउँमा इन्टरनेटको पहुच पुर्याउने महत्वोकाञ्छि योजनालाई विश्वसमुदायमाझ पेस गरिदियो। BBCको यस समर्थनबाट युरोप र अमेरिकाबाट विभिन्न सहहोयी दाताहरुले पुनलाई आर्थिक सहयोग गरे। त्याश सहयोगबाट उनले नांगी र राम्चे आसपासका गाउँहरुमा वायरलेस इन्टरनेट संचालन गर्न सफल भए।

पुन ‘इन्टरनेट हल अफ फेम’, ’समग्र सामाजिक नवीनता पुरस्कार’, एसियाको नोबेल पुरस्कार ले चिनिने ‘रोमन मेग्सय्सय अवार्ड’ जस्ता विभिन्न सम्मानद्वारा सुसज्जित राष्ट्रका ज्वाजल्यमान नक्श्यत्र हुन्।

पुनले सन २०१२मा सूचना तथा प्रबिधी मार्फत देश्बिकश्का सम्भावना हरुको खोज र आविष्कारगर्ने  उद्देश्यले मुनाफारहित संस्था राष्ट्रिय आविष्कार केन्द्र्को स्थापना गरे। यस्तो बिसाल योजनालाई मुर्तरुप दिन ठुलो आर्थिक सहयोगको खाचो हुनेभएकाले पुनले नेपल सरकारर्को ढोका बारम्बार ढक्ढकाए। बिगत चार बर्षमा ५ वटा सरकार फेरिए तर उनलाई सहयोग कसैले गरेन। यसकारण आजकल पुनलाई हामी जनताहरु माझ सहयोग संकलन कार्यक्रम मा तत्पररहेको हेर्नसक्छौ। खुसीको पक्ष यो छकी भ्रस्ट र अन्योलमा रहेको सरकारले मुख फेरिपनि देशबिदेशमा रहेका नेपाली जनताहरुले निक्कैनै हर्शौल्लास्कासाथ पुनलाई सहयोग गरिरहेका छन्।

राष्ट्रिय आविष्कार केन्द्र्को बारेमा थप जानकारी र सहयोग गर्न इच्छुक सम्पूर्ण श्रोतामहानुभाबले  राष्ट्रिय आविष्कार केन्द्र्को वेबसाईट www.nicnepal.orgमा  लागिन गर्न सक्नु हुनेछ। वेबसाईटमा आजको दिनसम्ममा संकलित रकमको एकएक हिसाब राखिएको देख्न सक्नु हुनेछ। साथै महाबीर पुनलाई यहाहरुले twitterमा @mahabirpun सर्च गरी फलो गर्न सक्नुहुनेछ। पुनले सिक्षा, स्वास्थ्य र सामाजिक आर्थिक स्थर वृद्धि गर्नकालागि आजका दिनसम्म पनी दिनरात नभनी खटीरहेका छन्। एस्ता राष्ट्रका सर्जक, प्रेरणानायक व्यक्तित्वलाई कार्यक्रमको तर्फबाट सुभकामना ।

Nepal Telecom 4G for iOS, iPhone. Apple finally allowed to use 4G.



4G has been made available for Nepal Telecom

The 4G service works well in Iphone 5, 5c and 5s so far. But, there was problem in iPhone 6 and above, because the update foe iPhone iOS was not provided now the wait is over.

Telecom operators all around the world must sign an agreement with Apple to enable their customers to use devices such as iPhone and iPad on their networks. NT apparently has not entered into such a deal. The agreement basically allows a telecom company to synchronise its network with Apple devices that run on iOS, paving the way for iPhone and iPad users to use 4G service on its network. NT has said it has already requested the American smartphone maker to enable the ‘location code’. Finally apple allowed NT for it's service.

Follow the following procedure to activate 4G in iOS in Nepal.

  1. Click here(this redirects you to apple's site) to go forward using 4G service in ios 6 and above.
  2. Follow the instructions and download the file taking backup of your phone.
lastly,


      3. Go to General>Settings>Software Update and download beta version

To bridge the gap between cutting edge technology, Nepal Telecom introduces 4G/LTE Network service to its GSM mobile subscribers for the first time in Nepal at an affordable cost.[1]

Nepal Telecommunication

Telecommunication services in Nepal dates back to 1970 B.S. While Nepal Telecommunication was formally established in 2028 B.S as fully owned Government Corporation after the enactment of Communication Corporation Act 2028. Vision of Nepal Telecom is to remain a dominant player in telecommunication sector in the Country while also extending reliable and cost effective services to all. Goal of Nepal Telecom is to provide cost effective telecommunication services to every nook and corner of country.[2]

4G/LTE Network Coverage

Nepal Telecom mentions on its official website that "the network will initially cover most parts of Kathmandu and Pokhara". Hence we can call this launch as an experimental one. Further it mentions that "soon the coverage will be expanded throughout the country. Where 4G network is not available, you can still enjoy the data browsing using NT 3G and 2G networks."
4G is the fourth generation of wireless mobile telecommunications technology, succeeding 3G. 4G technology includes applications like mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming service, high definition mobile TV, video conferencing and 3D Television.[3]

Bandwidth of 4G/LTE
Nepal Telecom plans to provide a bandwidth of 20Mbps. The bandwidth of 4G Network is 5-15Mbps while it can reach to its optimum of 40Mbps.

How to take advantage of 4G?
To use 4G/LTE service, your mobile device needs to support 4G/LTE and in case you have older version of SIM card, you will need to replace it with newer 4G enabled SIM(Universal SIM i.e. U-SIM). Subscription to 4G/LTE service and configuring it in your handset is easy – in case of any confusion feel free to contact our customer care center. There is no service activation fee for 4G/LTE. And usages charges are the same as before – it’s not more expensive.[1]

Nepal Telecom encourages its customers to get optimum benefit of this new feature provided for the first time ever in Nepal. While Nepal Telecom Launched its new feature 4G/LTE, Ncell (An Axiata Company) another competitive private Telecommunication Company of Nepal is experimenting 4G Network in Kathmandu. NCell has applied for the 4G License with NTA. An article was published by The Himalayan Times entitled "NTA to soon approve 4G service for NT, Ncell". While Nepal Telecom did launch it today, NCell is still exercising to get it done and launch among its subscribers.

Kathmandu University Computer Club (KUCC) is a non-profit, independent Club formed by students of Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the year 1997 with registration number in Student Welfare 001/1997. Celebrating its eighteen years of success in the field of Information and Communication Technology, KUCC organizes many ICT related workshops and events. IT MEET is an event organized by KUCC every year to showcase the emerging innovative technology.

KUCC has more than 1000+ members from Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Every student from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering are general members of KUCC. Apart, from these members, KUCC is supervised by the experienced Professors in any event conducted by the club. This club collaborates to conducts various project and workshop in and outside Kathmandu University. It has executed various small to large scale programs to raise awareness of ICT in different levels.

“IT MEET 2017” is an ICT event organized by Kathmandu University Computer Club (KUCC) and Department of Computer Science and Engineering to encourage interaction between students from various institutions of Nepal and youths from various walks of life. The event is a platform that gives momentum to the ICT Campaign. KUCC envisions to empower youths to promote their technical talent that will ultimately produce a technically reinforced society. KUCC advocates that the existing problems be solved using an innovative approach by bringing IT students and professionals together in a podium and share the solution to the general public.

KUCC has been organizing the IT MEET every year, commencing from 2006. The IT MEET of 2010 was conducted at IT Park, Banepa and that of 2011 conducted at Kathmandu University premises and it had been a trend until 2016, which was conducted at IT Park again. IT Meet 2017 assures a similar event, where we tirelessly probe the enhancement of IT throughout the nation and assist the overall development.
Development, however, is a vague notion. It is the consequence of various individual developments. Without collaboration and cooperation, the development process becomes fragmented, resulting uneven distribution and grotesque arrangement. Thus, at IT MEET 2017, we hope to work together with several institutions beside the IT institutions. Institutions such as School of Science, School of Law, School of Arts, School of Management and many more might have diverse areas of interest as well.

We have anticipated together about 20,000 people. Among them, most of which will be students and general public from colleges in and around Kathmandu Valley, Youth working in social sectors, Media personnel, ICT enthusiasts, Entrepreneurs, local audience from Kavrepalanchowk and others. The event, however, is open for people from any field. The event is planned as a series of three days’ festival dated January 20, January 21 and January 22 at the premises of Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel, during the office hours. Several programs will be held that embodies the principle of prosperity of IT through collaborative effort and entrepreneurship involvement. The following are the list of programs that will be conducted during the event:
  • Software Competition
