Learning Inclusion is an initiative of Diverse Patterns. International Development Institute (IDI) is a proud supporter and a partner of this initiative. Australia Awards Disability Initiative Grant provided financial support for the platform. Following social distancing guidelines, today we have hosted this event over Zoom and officially lunched the Nepal’s first and ever accessible E-Learning platform for inclusion.

Learning Inclusion is led by Sagar Prasai, a techpreneur and social activist. Sagar said “In today’s world, inclusive approach has become a significant part of anybody’s personal and professional life because human diversity exists. This inclusive platform strengthens people with or without disability to further embody the human diversity (disability) in the design process of their planning so that no one is left behind.” Sagar believes that courses on Learning Inclusion will be a great help for anyone who wants to stay continuously informed and upgrade their existing skills and knowledge on Diversity and Inclusion.

“Courses on Learning Inclusion are the best use of the technology to understand and enhance digital accessibility skills. It helps you accommodate the human difference and understand the importance of inclusion, says Suman Timsina, Executive Director of International Development Institute, the partner of Diverse Patterns initiative’s Learning Inclusion.
