ELI-Nepal is the evolution of 18 years of work with schools in Nepal. The first ELI took place in April 2017, in four schools in the Katmandu Valley and Helambu region. It has since developed into a full five-day program held outside of Katmandu. The focus is to support the capacity of educators in global competency development, particularly in critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication, with an emphasis on practical application of knowledge. There have been more than 500 participants in ELI Nepal.
